Sura 11, Hûd (Hûd)

[11:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[11:1] A.L.R. This is a scripture whose verses have been perfected, then elucidated.* It comes from a Most Wise, Most Cognizant.
*11:1 Our generation is fortunate to witness two awesome phenomena in the Quran: (1) an extraordinary mathematical code (Appendix 1), and (2) a literary miracle of incredible dimensions. If humans attempt to write a mathematically structured work, the numerical manipulations will adversely affect the literary quality. The Quran sets the standard for literary excellence.

Elucidate: to make something easier to understand by giving more information

Per the footnote of 11:1 a good example of a more accurate alternative word to “lucky” is “fortunate”.
