Explanation of 17:107

  |   Quran

English Translation of Al-Quran [17].Surah Al-Isra’ [The Journey By Night] also known as Surah Bani Israel [The Children of Israel] Ayat 107. Say (O Muhammad to them): "Believe in it (the Qur’an) or do not believe (in it). Verily! Those who were given knowledge before it (the Jews and the Christians like ‘Abdullah bin Salam and Salman Al-Farsi), when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration." [Tafseer] No one’s belief or unbelief affects the beauty or grandeur of Allah’s revelation. But those endowed with spiritual knowledge or insight know at once when they hear Allah’s Holy Word, and fall down and adore Allah. Those endowed with knowledge include those who had received previous revelations and had kept themselves free from corrupt ideas. [quran, isra]
