Lesson
       
bil-Haqqi  (with truth), wisdom, knowledge, and justice include also in the meanings of the word Haqq along with the truth. That is to say; the Word of God Almighty (Holy Qur’an) is full of wisdom as well as true in all respects.  

Musaddiqun – (a Verifier, an Affirmer, one which confirms that other Scriptures of God Almighty are true too), Holy Qur’an is the Scripture, which confirms those Scriptures, which were revealed before it. It acknowledges every Heavenly Book as on the truth, and believes in the entire Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) and that their teachings were also from Allah Almighty.

‘Al-Furqaan – (a standard of judging, the Criterion), it means such specified discretion, which is produced between the right and the wrong. According to some religious scholars, it aims the miracles, arguments and proofs which were conferred to every Messenger and Prophet (peace be upon them). Furqaan is the name of Holy Qur’an too. Its literal meanings are ‘the Separator’, that is to say; the Separator of right and wrong, true and false.

God Almighty has commanded to His last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) in these words here, “O Messenger! Holy Qur’an has been revealed unto you with truth and justice in accordance with real wisdom and it has another peculiarity that it confirms the Scriptures, which were revealed before it; like Torah of Moses, Psalms of David and Gospel of Jesus (peace be upon Them) etc. These Books were revealed for the guidance of the ancient people. Like this, Allah Almighty described that the faith regarding Godhead of Jesus and being son of God did not exist in any heavenly book, because according to the principles of the religion; all Heavenly Books are unanimous.

Allah Almighty revealed such proper things in every reign, which differentiate and distinct between the right and the wrong, lawful and unlawful, true and false. At last, He also commanded that the people; who will deny believing in the Revelations of Allah Almighty intentionally, He will punish them certainly. He is Overcoming, Requite and Perfect Capable to take revenge.
