Quran 20 Verse 133 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ta-Ha ayat 133, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(20:133) They ask: “Why does he not bring us a (miraculous) sign from his Lord?” Has there not come to them a Book containing the teachings of the previous scriptures?[116]


116. This means that the Quran itself is a great miracle, for though it is being presented by an unlettered person from among them, it contains the essence of the teachings and guidance of all tire previous divine Books. Not only that, it makes those teachings and guidance so plain and clear that even a simple man of the desert can benefit from them.
