15:55:3 the word "bil-haq" must be considere for more appropriate translation here and in other verses, as "with reality" or "with realisation", rather than in truth (sadiq).

Related words:

- The word sadiq is more appropriate for truth.

- Al-Haq refers to Allah who is, and causes to be, I.e. brings into reality.

15:64 uses both words bil-haq (the realization) and sadiq (truth). Often these words are incorrectly interchangeably used as in these translations. WaAllahul'Haqul'Aleem.

The transliteration should bil-ḥaqqi, to take into account the shadda on the letter "qaf".
