80:13 Books held greatly in honour

1 min read

(It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour,

At the time this Surah was revealed, there were
perhaps only about 42 or 45 Surahs in the hands of the
Muslims. But it was a sufficient body of Revelation of
high spiritual value, to which the description given here
could be applied. It was held in the highest honor; its
place in the hearts of Muslims was more exalted than
that of anything else; as Allah’s Word, it was pure and
sacred; and those who transcribed it were men who were
honorable, just and pious.
