2- The greatest description of the Qur’an.

ذلك الكتاب لا ريبَ فيه هدى للمتقين

That is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah.

  • This is the greatest ayah describing the Qur’an.
  • Why didn’t Allah say this? That is used for objects that are far and high (e.g. stars). Effect: shows the grandeur, nobility, loftiness, and status of the Quran.
  • Why didn’t Allah say a book?  The Quran contains the summaries of all the previous scriptures.
  • What type of la-لا is this? لا النافية للجنس . The meaning rendered is an absolute negation; there is nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo….. way there is any doubt.
  • Why not say شك ?  is ريب the smallest conceivable form of doubt. Allah even negated this!
  • What type of guidance is it? التنوين يفيد لتعظيم. The tanween — the daaan sound — makes it colossal guidance. The ayaats of the Quran are our guide to reach Jannah, just as the stars.
