And We did not send before you, [O Muúammad], any of the messengers except that they ate food and walked in the markets. And We have made some of you [people] as trial for others – will you have patience? And ever is your Lord, Seeing. [Al Furqan:20]
The former people denied the messengers on the basis that they ate and did not bring an angel with them. However, this is a clear excuse as if an angel was sent how would we as humans be able to follow him? Messengers were human and not divine beings.
