Explaining the Truth Through the Messenger and the Qur'anExplaining the Truth Through the Messenger and the Qur'an
Surah Al-Ma’idah 5: 15
Allah states that He sent His Messenger Muhammad with the guidance and the religion of truth to all the people of the earth, the Arabs and non-Arabs, lettered and unlettered. Allah also states that He sent Muhammad with clear evidences and the distinction between truth and falsehood. Allah said, O People of the Scripture! Now has come to you Our Messenger explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over much.
So the Prophet explained where they altered, distorted, changed and lied about Allah. He also ignored much of what they changed, since it would not bring about any benefit if it was explained. In his Mustadrak, Al-Hakim recorded that Ibn `Abbas said, "He who disbelieves in stoning (the adulterer to death) will have inadvertently disbelieved in the Qur'an, for Allah said, O People of the Scripture! Now has come to you Our Messenger explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture
and stoning was among the things that they used to hide.'' Al-Hakim said, "Its chain is Sahih, and they did not record it.'' Allah next mentions the Glorious Qur'an that He sent down to His honorable Prophet, Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light and a plain Book. Source: Tafsir ibn Kathir (Abridged)
