ESSENCE OF KITAB IN BRIEF:
2:2 ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
It is that SCRIPT, no doubt in it are guidance for those who are thoughtful / mindful [Those who take precaution about, what thoughts they are entertaining or conceiving]-
How the book can be guidance if we do not understand its language? The rasuls teaches us in our own language [14:4], how this is possible?
The KITAB is an inherent script [2:146, 6:20, 6:114, 29:51, 11:1, 12:1-2] and it is not easy to follow the script unless you are Mutaqi = diligent / cautious / prudent / conscious/ extremely careful. To understand our inner script [Al-Kitab] it is also important to know our inner Rasul because it is the job of the inner Rasul to teach us Al-Kitab and Al-Hikmah and develop us [2:129] [2:151] [2:231][10:1][12:1] [13:1]...
Al-Kitabu is a nominative case thus it cannot be a book of paper or any other material [6:7] [29:49]. In that script [Al-Kitab] is guidance for those who are extremely cautious or mindful or conscious. Our subconscious mind has virtually unlimited memory bank. It permanently stores everything that ever happens to us. Everything is written in it [6:38] [6:114] and its a clear a guide [Imam] and we will be judged according to the record of our book as it drives our every action [17:71] [36:12].
It is very important to understand the word Al-Kitab / Kitab - الْكِتَابُ - Zalikal - Kitab in this context means - The Pre-scripted, chronicle, the script, text - something which is already written or decreed or recorded or programmed. Al-Kitab in Quranic context does not mean a physical book written on leaves, leather or paper, the Al of Kitabu points to the quality of the precise and specific script embedded whose signs [ayaat] are in us[6:7] [29:49]. Kitab is an inherent script which discusses us and in which we are mentioned [21:10] embedded in all of us and can be recalled / remembered / recollected through Zikr [29:45] - the inherent messengers [rasuls] convey it in our own language [14:4] - The meaning of Tilawat is [تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ 2:44] to follow, imitate, study, walk behind, rehearse, accompany. -حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ - is achieved only when we study, copy, walk behind, rehearse and accompany the Kitab 24x7. This what Haq Tilawat of Al-Kitab means 2:121 - Note the word Tilawat does not mean to read but it means to walk the talk [To perform actions consistent with one's claims]. Prescriptions / script are not for just reading purpose, they are to be sincerely followed with persistency. And we all should, understand, study, talk and consult with our subconscious mind as it treasures the greatest exemplary lessons for all time to follow.
28:86 - وَمَا كُنتَ تَرْجُواْ أَن يُلْقَى إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابُ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ فَلَا تَكُونَنَّ ظَهِيرًا لِّلْكَافِرِينَ
And you were not hoping / expecting that the script would be embedded / communicated / put into the mind to you, except mercy from your Rabb [consciousness], so do not become obvious those who reject / hide [Allah's message].
