39:55 The Quran is the best Book revealed by Allah

1 min read

“And follow the best of (the courses) revealed to you from your Lord, before the Penalty comes on you – of a sudden while ye perceive not!-

In verse 55, it was said: (and follow the best of what has been sent down to you). The second phrase: (the best
of what has been sent down) means the Qur’an, and the whole Qur’an is
but ahsan, the best – and the Qur’an can be called: (best) also
in the sense that out of all scriptures – Torah, Injil, Zabur – revealed from
Allah Ta’ala, the Qur’an is the best and the most perfect. (Qurtubi)
