وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

And obey God and the Messenger, so that you may find mercy.
[God] tied obedience to the Messenger ﷺ to obedience to Himself. This was to elevate [the Prophet's] rank, and to make things easier for the com- munity by handing them over to the company of an individual who was one of them. It is more reassuring to be with one's own kind.
