Chapter Summary

This chapter explains about the Qur͗ān's external and internal aspect. The Qur͗ān is written in Arabic on the Well-guarded Tablet. The opening letters of some surahs are in Syriac. Qur͗ānic verses that refer to God's knowledge being renewed, though His knowledge is eternal. A discussion of certain meteorological phenomena: hail, snow, lightning, winds, etc. 'God eradicates and He establishes whatever He wishes'. Explained as being connected with random thoughts about future events, some of which occur while others do not. The difference between prophethood and Friendship with God. And what a person with illumination beholds. The implied meaning of the hadīth: 'Alms tax is owed for freely grazing sheep'. Knowledge of the Night of Power. If the Friends of God know when that night arrives each year, the Prophet certainly knew it.

Keywords: hadīth:; prophethood; Qur͗ān; surahs
