Most Suitable, Most Precise, Most Upright….Subhanallaah!

Qur’an uses rich words that are mind-boggling and overwhelming. Those that create a strong and vivid impression in the minds of the readers. Qur’anic vocabulary is expressively impressive and impressively expressive.

However, the purpose of the Qur’an is not to weave rich tapestry leading to intellectual exercises and literary debates on the part of the readers but the purpose is to convey the truth in the most miraculous a manner.

This aayah enchants me a lot: سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ
