Question 25: I express my heartfelt condolences on the sad demise of your great father. The question I want to ask is: what is the rational argument behind the prophetic mission of the prophets?
Answer 25: Thank you for your sympathy and sincere message. May Allah grant you success. The main reason for the necessity of the prophetic mission of the prophets is the principle of grace (qaeda-e lotf). This principle means that graciousness is necessary and obligatory upon God. Rationally, God cannot deny human beings guidance and prosperity. He must send down a religion or a Shari’ah through a prophet. The same rational argument applies to Imamat. This topic is dealt with at length by books relating ideological subjects. Please refer.
