بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓاْ إِنۡ هَـٰذَآ إِلَّآ إِفۡكٌ ٱفۡتَرَٮٰهُ وَأَعَانَهُ ۥ عَلَيۡهِ قَوۡمٌ ءَاخَرُونَ‌ۖ فَقَدۡ جَآءُو ظُلۡمً۬ا وَزُورً۬ا (٤) وَقَالُوٓاْ أَسَـٰطِيرُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِينَ ٱڪۡتَتَبَهَا فَهِىَ تُمۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡهِ بُڪۡرَةً۬ وَأَصِيلاً۬ (٥) قُلۡ أَنزَلَهُ ٱلَّذِى يَعۡلَمُ ٱلسِّرَّ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ ڪَانَ غَفُورً۬ا رَّحِيمً۬ا (٦)

Those who disbelieve say: This is naught but a lie that he hath invented, and other folk have helped him with it, so that they have produced a slander and a lie. (4) And they say: Fables of the men of old which he hath had written down so that they are dictated to him morn and evening. (5) Say (unto them, O Muhammad): He who knoweth the secret of the heavens and the earth hath revealed it. Lo! He ever is Forgiving, Merciful. (6)

Those who did not want to believe made two objections: One about the Book of Allah and one about His Messenger.

The first objection was about the Quran.:

When Allah’s ayat are read to them they say: we know about this,  these are old stories that we know, it is the same old things.

It is important to remember that in everyday life:

Don’t we repeat certain things?

don’t we  repeat things because:

We read something we repeat it to learn

We tell someone we love again and again because we love them

It is when we don’t like the other person then repetition is irritating.

Because they (who did not want to believe in the Message of Allah) were not interested in what the Quran had to say so they got irritated with it. However if we think about watching TV how often the ads are repeated, and yet we do not get irritated.

The Quran has been sent for reflection, understanding and action.

Action becomes easy if one has heard the instructions again and again.

Quran is not only a book to give information but it is an instructional book for action and thus one has to read it again and again to carry out the action in a perfect manner.

These ayats focus on the purpose of the Book and the Messenger.

This Book contains the secrets of our Creators immense power and abilities.

Human beings give a lot of importance if someone writes a book and even become followers of certain writers, and yet the Quran has untold secrets of Allah who holds within him all the mysteries of everything in and around us, and people sometimes do not read it leave alone repeat the reading.

Surah Mulk 67:13

And keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, lo! He is Knower of all that is in the breasts (of men). (13)

Surah Naml 75: And there is nothing hidden in the heaven or the earth but it is in a clear Record. (75)
