The Clear Proof A Tafsīr Of Sūrat Al Bayyinah – Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 25th October 2013 at Al Kawthar Academy (Leicester)
This surah speaks about the relationship between the Muslims and the non- Muslims after the advent of Islam. The people of the book were awaiting a clear proof in the form of the Prophet ﷺ. However, despite all indications
that they should have believed, upon the arrival of the Messenger ﷺ they desisted and rejected the divine message.
The surah ends with the declaration from Allah of the ultimate abode of those who believe and those who reject. An account is given of those who are considered the best and those who are the worst of creation.
In addition, we also learn why the Qur’an was initially not send down as a bound book and remained as an oral message and the tradition of Islam. The answer is also given to the question, “Are Humans superior to Angels”?
