One of the secrets of the magnificent Qur’an is the way it throws light on and unveils the Lord of mankind through its discourse of His Attributes. Sometimes, therefore, the Lord is manifested through the verses of the Qur’an by the inducement of awe, majesty and sublimity, (which causes) heads to bow down, souls to quieten, voices to fade and pride to dissolve away like salt dissolves in water.
