The Wisdom Behind Sending The Messengers

Allah sent the Messengers (PBUT) to the people, so that they could call them to His Religion, to worshiping Him alone - without associating partners with Him, and to avoiding the worship of others. The first Messenger was Nuh (PBUH), and the last one was Muhammad (SAW).
Allah sent the Messengers as a proof upon mankind, to convey the message of the religion to the people, to give glad tidings of Paradise and of a great reward to the obedient one, and to warn the disobedient one of a severe punishment and the Hellfire. Allah Almighty says:
[We sent] messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the Messengers. [An-Nisa' 4:165]
