“And (remember) on the day (when) we raised up to every people a witness over them of their own, and We bring you (Muhammad) as a witness over them. And We send down the Book (Al-Qur’an) to you to explain everything, as a guide, as well as grace and good news for people who surrender (Muslims).” (QS 16:89)
