Say: “Whether ye believe in it or not, it is true that those who were given knowledge beforehand, when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration,
No one’s belief or unbelief affects the beauty or
grandeur of Allah’s revelation. But those endowed with
spiritual knowledge or insight know at once when they
hear Allah’s holy Word, and fall down and adore Allah.
Those endowed with knowledge include those who had
received previous revelations and had kept themselves
free from corrupt ideas.
