* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَكَذَلِكَ أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ رُوحاً مِّنْ أَمْرِنَا مَا كُنتَ تَدْرِي مَا ٱلْكِتَابُ وَلاَ ٱلإِيمَانُ وَلَـٰكِن جَعَلْنَاهُ نُوراً نَّهْدِي بِهِ مَن نَّشَآءُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهْدِيۤ إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ }

And thus in the same way that We have revealed to messengers other than you have We revealed to you O Muhammad (s) a Spirit namely the Qur’ān by which hearts are revived from Our command that command which We reveal to you. You did not know before revelation came to you what the Book was what the Qur’ān was nor faith that is its ordinances and ritual ceremonies the negation comments in place of the verb on the action and what has come after it constitutes two direct objects; but We have made it namely the Spirit — or the Qur’ān — a light by which We guide whomever We will of Our servants. And verily you guide you are summoning people by means of what is revealed to you to a straight path a straight way the religion of Islam
