Refer to 2:177 for the answer.
 لَّيْسَ الْبِرَّ أَن تُوَلُّوا وُجُوهَكُمْ قِبَلَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّـهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالْكِتَابِ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ وَآتَى الْمَالَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِ ذَوِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينَ وَابْنَ السَّبِيلِ وَالسَّائِلِينَ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَى الزَّكَاةَ وَالْمُوفُونَ بِعَهْدِهِمْ إِذَا عَاهَدُوا ۖ وَالصَّابِرِينَ فِي الْبَأْسَاءِ وَالضَّرَّاءِ وَحِينَ الْبَأْسِ ۗ أُولَـٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا ۖ وَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُتَّقُونَ

Dear Iyyaka! As per my knowledge کتب kitabun means a writing/an instruction while کتابا kitaban may mean some/a few writings or instructions.
Moreover, the word من min means 'from/within' so منہ minhu would mean 'from/within it (the Quran) '.
Rest, I agree that the meaning 'similar' or 'resembling' fits far better than the traditional meanings and it clears words of a few more ayats. For example, یضل بہ in 2:26

Good. However, please note that two similar may cause some confusions as in case of twin children, even their own parents face some problems. So this meaning cannot be ignored. However, need to work more on this.

I think these mutashabehat ayahs also include those ayahs which are used in AQ as examples or similitudes.

Dear brother Noon! Isn't there a difference in reading of ابواہ and ابویہ in 4:11?

Good article but the case is that AQ is not 100% contradiction free.
When you read  اختلافا کثیرا. Note that katheera is opposite of قلیلا. it means that there are/maybe a few possible contradictions/differences in it. However, it is 100% based on "The Truth"

Yes, you are right. Will be waiting for further details.

This can only stay as a question,quote:

"Is there any single person who has found guidance from Quran only? No one at all!"

Your answer to it is an assumption. You cannot possibly know . All of us can only speak for ourselves only. we cannot know the innermost thoughts of others nor are we given inspiration or information about who is guided from Qoran.

Unless of course GOD is communicating with you  who is guided by Qoran.
As for being here for guidance from others like you think, Qoran disagrees with you,since it clearly states guidance can only be from GOD Alone.
Of course this also means Qoran is only there as a tool/instruction. GOD Alone does the guiding.
GOD bless you.
Salam brother!
You are right that it is only Allah who guides. Let me change the question. Is there any single person who claims that he/she is guided by Allah alone? If yes, then how¿

Arabic / Re: What is the difference between دَخَلَ and سلک?

د خ ل to enter is used for a closed environment e.g., to enter a house, a hole, a tent etc. From where you can exit خ ر ج from the same entrance/door etc.
While س ل ک is used for an open path, way, road etc. Which may have several exits or turns. To Enter might not be the exact English subritute for س ل ک.

we have been given the guidance, Quran, by The God ... why seek other than The God as a Guide and Judge?
Very funny... Tell me how Quran guides you... If you had found guidance in Quran then what are you doing here?
Well, this is not only you, it is everyone at this forum including myself. We read something in Quran. But we do not understand it fully or find contradictions in translations/interpretations. We are mostly confused so we talk to others and try to see if our understanding is right or wrong. People give examples of science, philisophy, grammar, history, human rights etc. etc. and we get convinced if it suits us otherwise, we usually leave the topic and go for another point of discussion. And we think that we are guided.
Really, it makes me laughing and sometimes, I feel ashamed of myself. We simply do not trust the Quran and do not believe in our own eyes, hearing or intellect.
Well, after all it is Allah who guides or misguides (through/by the Quran) to whomever He wills.
Is there any single person who has found guidance from Quran only? No one at all!
