(these are verses of the scripture) this surah consists of verses from the scripture (and a plain reading) he says: i swear by the qur'an which makes plain the lawful and the prohibited, the commands and prohibitions.

تفسير : alif lām rā’: god knows best what he means by these [letters]. those — these verses — are the verses of the book, the qur’ān (āyātu’l-kitābi: this annexation functions in the sense of min, ‘from’) and of a manifest qur’ān, one that makes evident what is truth and what is falsehood (wa-qur’ānin mubīnin is [made up of] a supplement with an added adjectival qualification).
