Surah Al-Jumu'ah (The Friday) 62

This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 11 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

" teach them the Book and the Wisdom..."62:2

COMMENTARY: The word al-Kitab refers to the Noly Qur'an, and the word al-Hikmah refers to all the teachings and guidance that have been received from the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) orally or practically. As a result, many of the commentators have interpreted the word Hikmah as the Approved Way (Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).

A Question and its Answer: A question arises here that the natural order of wording in the verse should have been thus:
(1) recitation or teaching of words; followed by
(2) teaching of meaning; and consequently
(3) making pure by inculcating righteous deeds and high morals

However, in most places the Qur'an has changed the sequence by inserting number 3 first; then number 1; and then number 2?

A: Ruhul-Ma'ani explains that if the natural order of wording were to be maintained in all verses, all three elements would have combined together and become 'one', as it happens in pharmaceutical mixing of many substances, the aggregate of which loses the separate identity of each element, and becomes a single 'compound' whereas probably Allah wanted to maintain separate identities of the Divine blessings and the three Prophetic duties separately identifiable. By changing the natural order in most places, the Noble Qur'an has probably alluded to this fact.
