We have not instructed the (Prophet) in Poetry, nor is it meet for him: this is no less than a Message and a Qur’an making things clear:

Here “Poetry” is used as connoting fairy tales,
imaginary descriptions, things futile, false, or obscure,
such as decadent Poetry is, whereas the Quran is a
practical guide, true and clear.
