Sent to an Illiterate Nation
It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom — although they were before in clear error –
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
يُسَبِّحُ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ الْمَلِكِ الْقُدُّوسِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ
هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah, the King, the Pure, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
It is He who has sent among the illiterate a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom — although they were before in clear error –
Narrated Ubayy bin Ka’b:
“The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him met Jibril (Angel Gabriel) and said: ‘O Jibril! I have been sent to an illiterate nation among whom are the elderly woman, the old man, the boy and the girl, and the man who cannot read a book at all.’
He said: ‘O Muhammad! Indeed, the Qur’an was revealed in seven modes.’”
