Clear Proofs and Books

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

    وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوحِىٓ إِلَيْهِمْ فَسْـَٔلُوٓا۟ أَهْلَ ٱلذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ 43

  بِٱلْبَيِّنَٰتِ وَٱلزُّبُرِ وَأَنزَلْنَآ إِلَيْكَ ٱلذِّكْرَلِتُبَيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ مَا نُزِّلَ إِلَيْهِمْ وَلَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ 44


43.  And We sent not (as Our messengers) before thee other than men whom We inspired – so ask the followers of the Remembrance if ye know not!-


44a.  With clear Proofs and Books.

43.  Wa  maaa  ‘arsalNaa  min-  qablika  ‘illaa  rijaalan-nuuHiii  ‘ilayhim  fas-‘aluuu  ‘Ahlaz-Zikri  ‘in-  kuntum  laa  ta’-lamuun.


44a.  Bil-Bayyi-naati  waz-Zubur.  




Zuburin – (Books), it is plural of Zabuur, which means “a written book, a leaf, a page, a volume, a letter”. This word has passed in Suratun-Nisaa’.


It was mentioned previously that it is included in the creation of the world that every kind of people should live here. By giving them sense and understanding, the Straight Path should be manifested by means of the Prophets (peace be upon them) and the Scriptures. And every individual should be empowered to accept or reject them.


The same has been described in this verse. It is commanded: For always, it remained Our rule in the world that We sent any mankind as a Prophet for the guidance of the human beings, and unto Him; We continued sending Our Commandment by means of an Angel, that He (the Prophet) should guide the people for good works and prevent them from wicked deeds. We bestowed such tokens to the Messengers and gave them Books, by which they feel not any difficulty in recognizing them. If you don’t know it, then you should satisfy yourself by asking from them who know and understand actual circumstances in the world. Because there is no other way for those who are unaware; save it that they should ask from them who know well, and they should act upon their sayings.


Known clearly from it is that in the world, existence of any more intelligent person from the one is certain in every field of life. Unintelligent and ignorant people can solve their problems by means of them.
