If you read the Arabic text of the verse you will find Allah has used the world "دابة" and not "مخلوق" and the difference is that Makhluq is as you wrote for literal meaning of creature, anything created and more precisely being created, but Daabbah denote only a category among all the creatures, that is, those that move, seemingly those that are animate! ...

Ibn Kathir says: (And no bearer of burdens shall bear another's burden) means: On the Day of Resurrection, if a person who is carrying a heavy burden calls someone else to help him carry his load, all or part of it, nothing of it will be lifted even if he is closely-related to him, even if he is his father or son, for each person will be ...

It's just as easy to find examples of the 'good tidings' as well. More so, actually :) The most prominent example of good tidings that Prophets preached is the promise of Paradise for those who do good. The Qur'an itself gives this good tiding and it is mentioned throughout. إن هذا القرآن يهدي للتي هي أقوم ويبشر المؤمنين الذين يعملون الصالحات أن لهم أجرا ...

As the tafsir you quoted says, it seems that this ayah is a response to the People of Makkah and their demands from the prophet. (For instance, they wanted him to turn a mountain into gold.) Allah is telling the prophet to inform them that just because he is a prophet doesn't mean he can do or know supernatural or unseen things. This is from the online ...

Say, "I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead animal or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine - ...

Muhammed Asad, doesn't translate the word to enemy here in singular form, rather in plural, which I think fits in best in the context: AND THUS it is that against every prophet We have set up as enemies the evil forces from among humans as well as from among invisible beings that whisper unto one another glittering half-truths meant to delude the mind. ...

From Tafsir Ibn Kathir: وَمِنْهُمْ مَّن يَسْتَمِعُ إِلَيْكَ وَجَعَلْنَا عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ وَفِى ءَاذَانِهِمْ وَقْراً وَإِن يَرَوْاْ كُلَّ ءَايَةٍ لاَّ يُؤْمِنُواْ بِهَا (And of them there are some who listen to you; but We have set veils on their hearts, so they understand it not, and deafness in their ears; if they see ...

Jinns and angels exist and they are creatures, but they have different nature from human being. Our nature is mud, angel's nature is light and jinn's fire. Plus, they live in different worlds. Human being's live in Alame Shohud but angels exist in Alame Malakut, that's why we can't see them. At the end, they are creature but we can't see them based on ...
