Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

Yes I'm familiar with this aya, but this aya is about other messengers who were mentioned in the Quran. Again with the concept of: don't take the aya as it own, you have to mention it within its context. The context could be one line, one paragraph, one page or an entire Surah.

" Wa ma arsalnaka illa kaffatan le al nas basheeran wa natheera"
