Compare this with other passages (as Arts. VII,
XIII., XV., &c.) which appeal to the Jews and Christians as witnesses to
the correspondence of the Corân with their own Scriptures.
LVII.SURA XIII., v. 45.
And those who disbelieve say,Thou art not sent;say,God sufficeth for a
witness between me and between you, and also he with whom is the knowledge of
"And also he with whom is the knowledge of the Book; that is
from amongst the believers of the Jews and Christians,"
The purport is similar to that of the preceding passage. Mahomet's
witnesses at Mecca were, as here alleged, God himself, and certain of the
Jews and Christians, to whose knowledge of their own inspired Scriptures he
appeals for evidence in favour of the Corân.
