Quran 98 Verse 2 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Bayyinah ayat 2, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(98:2) a Messenger[4] from Allah, reciting from Purified Scrolls;[5]


4. Here, the Prophet (peace be upon him) has been calledthe clear evidence, for his life before and afterProphethood, his presenting a Book like the Quran in spiteof being un-lettered, his bringing about an extraordinaryrevolution in the lives of the converts to Islam througheducation and training, his educating the people in rationalbeliefs, clean and pure forms of worship, excellent moralsand the best principles and injunctions for human life,perfect harmony and agreement between his word anddeed, and his constancy of purpose in respect of hismessage in spite of every kind of resistance and opposition,all these were clear signs of the truth that he was Allah’sMessenger.

5. Lexically, suhuf means written pages, but in the Quranthis word has been used as a term for the Books revealed tothe Prophets of Allah (peace be upon them); and by thescriptures are meant the scriptures which are free fromevery mixture of falsehood, every kind of error and moralfilth. The full import of these words becomes evident whenone studies the Bible (and the books of other religions aswell) vis-a-vis the Quran, and finds written in them alongwith sound teachings such things as are not only opposed totruth and reason but are also morally contemptible. Afterreading them when one turns to the Quran, one realizeshow pure and hallowed this Book is.
