* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَوْ نَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ كِتَٰباً فِي قِرْطَاسٍ فَلَمَسُوهُ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ لَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ إِنْ هَـٰذَآ إِلاَّ سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ }

And had We revealed to you a Scripture inscribed on parchment as they requested and had they then touched it with their hands — this is more powerful than saying ‘had they seen it with their eyes’ since it touch is more effective in eliminating doubt; the disbelievers would have said in disobedience and obduracy ‘This is nothing but manifest sorcery’.
