وَهَٰذَا كِتَٰبٌ أَنزَلۡنَٰهُ مُبَارَكٌ مُّصَدِّقُ ٱلَّذِى بَيۡنَ يَدَيۡهِ وَلِتُنذِرَ أُمَّ ٱلۡقُرَىٰ وَمَنۡ حَوۡلَهَا ۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱلۡءَاخِرَةِ يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِهِۦ ۖ وَهُمۡ عَلَىٰ صَلَاتِهِمۡ يُحَافِظُونَ
And this is a Book which We have sent down, bringing blessings, and confirming (the revelations) which came before it: that thou mayest warn the mother of cities and all around her. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in this (Book), and they are constant in guarding their prayers.<br/>
And this, Qur'aan, is a blessed Book We have revealed, confirming that which was before it, of scriptures, and that you may warn (li-tundhira, or read li-yundhira, 'that it may warn', as supplement to the import of the preceding statement [sc. 'to confirm that which was before it and to warn']), in other words, We have revealed it for [the] blessings [it gives], as a vindication [of previous scripture] and for you to warn therewith, the Mother of Towns and those around it, that is, the inhabitants of Mecca and all other people; and those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they observe their prayers, fearing the punishment thereof.
