Here, some will question the repetition of verses in the Holy Qur’an, as repetitions may give rise to doubts in its linguistic authenticity.
The answer lies in the deep-rooted meanings and the secrets that lie within the repetitions itself. And this is indeed among the miracles of the words of Allah U. An example of this is when Allah U mentions:
﴾قُلْ سِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ ﴿
“Say to them: Travel throughout the earth” [Surah Al-An’aam: 11].
This verse was sent down to the illuminated heart of the Prophet Muhammad r. During the time it was revealed, when the Prophet read it to the people, they had no difficulty in understanding it due to their proficiency in the Arabic language. Nonetheless, the human mind still has its own limitations, while the Holy Qur’an is the limitless words of Allah U. It is a part of His Attributes. Due to this reason, al-Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal disagrees with the notion that the Holy Qur’an is a creation of Allah U as it is an Attribute of Allah U And indeed, he is right in saying so.
