Qur’an 3:3 - Qur’an in clear Arabic or not?

There are different answers to the question in the Qur’an:

Qur’an is in clear Arabic - Qur’an 16:103

“And We certainly know that they say, "It is only a human being who teaches the Prophet." The tongue of the one they refer to is foreign, and this Qur’an is [in] a clear Arabic language.” (Qur’an 16:103)

Qur’an is not in clear Arabic - Qur’an 3:7

“It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise - they are the foundation of the Book - and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah . But those firm in knowledge say, "We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord." And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.”(Qur’an 3:7) Only men of understanding are able to have benefits from the messages in the Qur’an. Some verses are basic some are not specific in the Qur’an. Only Allah knows the hidden meanings of the Qur’an.


The Qur’an has a contradiction about the Qur’an in clear Arabic, because one verse is telling us that the Qur’an is clear, while another verse says that some verses can be unspecific.
