Quran in Arabic Language (Surah Yusuf Verse 2)

Surah Yusuf, Verse 2:

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

No doubt about it, it is We, We sent it down as an Arabic recital so that (hopefully) all of you can (think) and understand.


Quran is meant to be spoken instead of being reduced to just a beautiful sound. It is meant for all human beings to think about and understand it. Saidina Umar ra said "learn Arabic because it enhances your ability to think."

All of you

  • All of you refers to all of humanity

Why Arabic?

  • Arab literally means to express yourself and your feelings in the most elaborate ways; a river that is overflowing; gushing
  • It is an expressive language and extremely rich with imagery
  • A way to protect Islam from being tarnished with liberal interpretation that can cause confusion and from being reduced to restrictive interpretation that can be mistaken as a dictatorship among the believers and non-believers.
  • It has becomes the language of the believers and not just an ethnic.

Think and understand

  • Everybody can think but not everyone can understand (they can misunderstand too)
  • Quran can direct your thoughts to the right way
  • Eg: Yusuf as does not have much knowledge except what his father taught him when he was a child. But he grew up as an adult that is able to think and understand clearly and able to control his emotions.
  • Quran do not emphasise knowledge but it emphasise thinking and understanding.

The best story (Surah Yusuf Verse 3)

Surah Yusuf, Verse 3:

نَحْنُ نَقُصُّ عَلَيْكَ أَحْسَنَ الْقَصَصِ بِمَا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ وَإِن كُنتَ مِن قَبْلِهِ لَمِنَ الْغَافِلِينَ

We in fact, We narrates on to you, this story in the best possible way it can be told, by way of having inspired this Quran to you, and for sure long before this (up until now/right before you were being told the story), you truly were from those who are unaware. (you have no idea about what the story is).


  • It is Allah that tells the story in His own way.
  • Qassa originated from Qissa literally means step by step.
  • The storyboarding designed by Allah.
  • The purpose of every stories in the Quran not to entertain but to guide.
  • Ahsanal Qasas to narrate in the best possible way, the best of all stories, the best of the story.

In the way it is inspired to you

  • Allah is teaching us about what to focus on and facts that we should not be focusing on.

For sure, up until now, you have no clue

  • As the verses were coming out of his mouth, the Prophet saw have no knowledge of what he's about to say.
  • He was amazed the same way the sahabahs were amazed.
