Tafsir of Verse(s): [6]
وَصَدَّقَ بِالْحُسْنَى 6
j and attests to what is most beautiful, 6 What is most beautiful (al-ḥusnā), here and in v. 9, is taken by most to mean “There is no god but God” (Sh) or simply belief in God (Z), so that either of these is what is being attested to or denied; others see it as a reference to Paradise, which is referred to as the most beautiful reward in 3:148 and 3:195 (IK, Sh, Z). But it can also be seen as a reference to God Himself, for, as several verses attest, Unto Him belong the Most Beautiful Names (17:110; 20:8; 59:24; cf. 7:180).
