    Muhammad’s Divine Utterances Restricted to Quran Alone – Join islam

    Throughout the Quran, God swears by different things, such as the moon (74:32), the position of the stars (56:75), and the Day of Resurrection (75:1). Yet, the most all-encompassing oath in the Quran occurs in Surah Al-Haaqqah (69), where God swears by everything. [69:38] I swear by what you see.[69:39] And what you do not see. (٣٨) فَلَآ أُقْسِمُ بِمَا تُبْصِرُونَ(٣٩) وَمَا لَا تُبْصِرُونَ…
