Can they be (like) those who accept a Clear (Sign) from their Lord, and whom a witness from Himself doth teach, as did the Book of Moses before it,- a guide and a mercy? They believe therein; but those of the Sects that reject it,- the Fire will be their promised meeting-place. Be not then in doubt thereon: for it is the truth from thy Lord: yet many among men do not believe!
. “A witness from Himself’: i.e., the Book
which was given to Al-Mustafa, the Holy Quran, which is
compared to the original Revelation given to Moses. We
make no difference between one true and genuine
Message and another, nor between one apostle and
another, for they all come from the One True God.
