We had more of 19er postings on Quranology, unfortunately. This time, about the so-called ‘7 pairs’ which they allude to being the muqataat (the mystical letters). Why on earth would God call them 7 pairs is of course, never explained. Why noy 14 sets? Anyhow….
An interesting new development (at least to me) is the use of 10/20 and 25/5-6. Here’s what they say about it:
The Quran states in 10:20 and 25:4-6 that its miracle, i.e., proof of divine authorship, was destined to remain secret for a specific predetermined interim.
This is of course, patent nonsense. The Quran says nothing of the sort. My answer is as follows:
Your interpretation of 10/20 and 25/5-6 is highly suspect.
10/20: And they say, “Why is a sign not sent down to him from his Lord?” So say, “The unseen is only for Allah [to administer], so wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait.”
This aya is for the Prophet and the Prophet was told to say ‘wait, i am waiting with you’. It has nothing to do with some secret miracle.
25/6: Say, , “It has been revealed by He who knows secrets within the heavens and the earth. Indeed, He is ever Forgiving and Merciful.”
It says ALLAH knows the secrets. It doesnt say Quran contains secrets.
