بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
وَ بِالْحَقِّ أنْزَلْنَاهُ
And with truth We have sent it down,
Allah tells us that His Book, the Glorious Qur’an, has been sent with truth, i.e.,
it contains the truth, as Allah says:
لَّكِنِ اللهُ يَشْهَدُ بِمَِا أنْزَلَ إلَيْكَ أنْزَلَهُ بِعِلْمِهِ وَ مَلَئِكَهُ يَشْهِدُوْنَ
But Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down unto you; He has sent it down with His knowledge, and the angels bear witness: but enough is Allah for a Witness. . (4:166)
meaning, it contains the knowledge which Allah wanted to teach to you, with His rulings,
commands and prohibitions.
وَ بِالْحَقَّ نَزَلَ
and with truth it has descended.
means, “It has been sent down to you, O Muhammad, preserved and protected, not contaminated or mixed with anything else, with nothing added or taken away. It has come to you with the truth, brought down by one mighty in power, trustworthy and strong, one who is obeyed by the higher group (angels).’
وَ مَا أرْسَلْنَاكَ
And We have sent you, (O Muhammad),
إلاَّ مُبَشِّرًا وَ نَذِيْرً
as nothing but a bearer of glad tidings and a warner.
a bearer of glad tidings for the believers who obey you and a warner to the disbelievers who disobey you.
We sent down the (Qur’an) in Truth, and in Truth has it descended: and We sent thee but to give Glad Tidings and to warn (sinners – of the Hell-fire).
(It is) a Qur’an which We have divided (into parts from time to time), in order that thou mightest recite it to men at intervals: We have revealed it by stages.
Say: “Whether ye believe in it or not, it is true that those who were given knowledge beforehand, when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration”
And say: “Glory to our Lord! Truly has the promise of our Lord been fulfilled!”
They fall down on their faces in tears, and it increases their (earnest) humility.
Say: “Call upon Allah, or call upon Rahman: by whatever name ye call upon Him (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak your Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between.”
Say: “Praise be to Allah Who begets no son, and has no partner in (His) dominion: nor (needs) He any to protect Him from humiliation: Yea, magnify Him for His Greatness and Glory!”
