You were not there ˹O Prophet˺ on the western side of the mountain when We entrusted the Commandments to Moses, nor were you present ˹in his time˺.1

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But We ˹later˺ raised ˹several˺ generations, and the ages took their toll on them.1 Nor were you living among the people of Midian, rehearsing Our revelations with them. But it is We Who have sent ˹this revelation to you˺.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And you were not at the side of Mount Ṭûr when We called out ˹to Moses˺. But ˹you have been sent˺ as a mercy from your Lord to warn a people to whom no warner has come before you, so perhaps they may be mindful.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Also so they would not say, if struck by an affliction for what their hands have done: “Our Lord! If only You had sent us a messenger, we would have followed Your revelations and become believers.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But when the truth came to them from Us, they said, “If only he was given the like of what Moses had been given.”1 Did they not deny what had been given to Moses earlier? They claimed, “Both ˹Scriptures˺ are works of magic, supporting each other!”2 Adding, “We truly deny both.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Bring then a scripture from Allah which is a better guide than these two so I may follow it, if your claim is true.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So if they fail to respond to you, then know that they only follow their desires. And who could be more astray than those who follow their desires with no guidance from Allah? Surely Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Indeed, We have steadily delivered the Word ˹of Allah˺ to the people so they may be mindful.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

˹As for˺ those ˹faithful˺ to whom We had given the Scripture before this ˹Quran˺, they do believe in it.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

When it is recited to them, they declare, “We believe in it. This is definitely the truth from our Lord. We had already submitted1 ˹even˺ before this.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

These ˹believers˺ will be given a double reward for their perseverance, responding to evil with good, and for donating from what We have provided for them.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
