Third Point: It is about the wisdom behind Disjointed Letters (Huruf al-Muqatta’a), found at the beginning of some verses.


The ‘disjointed letters’ at the start of some Suras are a Divine cypher. Almighty Allah indicates certain signs from the Unseen through them to His special servant. The key to the cypher is with that servant, and with his heirs. The All-Wise Qur’an addresses all ages and all the groups of mankind. The share of all the classes every age may encompass numerous different aspects and meanings. The purest share was that of the righteous ones of the first generations of Islam, and they expounded it. The people of sainthood and those who research into reality have found in their writings numerous allusions to the matters of the Unseen pertaining to spiritual journeying. In the commentary called Signs of Miraculousness, at the start of Sura al-Baqara, we discussed them to a small extent from the point of view of the miraculousness of the Qur’an’s eloquence; that work may be referred to.
