Explanation of 24:5

  |   Quran

English Translation of Al-Quran [24].Surah Al-Furqan [The Criterion] Ayat 5. And they say: "Tales of the ancients, which he (Muhammad SAWW (PBUH) has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon." Ayat 6. O’ (Muhammad SAWW (PBUH) Say: "It (this Qur’an) has been sent down by Him (Allah) (the Real Lord of the heavens and earth) Who knows the secret of the heavens and the earth. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." [Tafseer] of Ayat 5. And they say: "Tales of the ancients, which he has caused to be written: and they are dictated before him morning and evening." In their misguided arrogance they say: ‘We have heard such things before: they are pretty tales which have come down from ancient times; they are good for amusement, but who takes them seriously? When the beauty and power of the Revelation are pointed Out, and its miracle as coming from an unlearned man, they again hint at other men who wrote them, though they could not produce any one who could write anything like it. And in Tasfeer of Ayat 6. Say: "The (Quran) was sent down by Him who knows the mystery (that is) in the heavens and the earth: verily He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."The answer is that the Qur’an teaches spiritual knowledge of what is ordinarily hidden from men’s sight, and such knowledge can only come from Allah, to Whom alone is known the Mystery of the whole Creation. In spite of man’s sin and shortcomings, He forgives, and He sends His most precious gift, i.e., the revelation of His Will.
