    giving you signs of guidance and judgment between right and wrong

    "Ramadhaan is the month in which the Qur'an was revealed as a guide for humankind and giving you signs of guidance and judgment between right and wrong"

    Does above sentence mean "Ramadhaan is the month in which the Qur'an was revealed as a guide for humankind and that gives you signs of guidance and judgment between right and wrong" ?

    It sounds incorrect, and therefore it's difficult to say whether the author means that it's the Qu'ran that gives signs of guidance and judgment, or whether it's the month of Ramadhaan that gives signs of guidance and judgment.

    I suspect that the meaning would have been clearer with the addition of one word: "... in which the Qu'ran was revealed as a guide for humankind and for giving you signs of guidance..." which relates back to the word 'guide,' as in "it's a guide for humankind and a guide for giving signs of guidance..."

    Re: giving you signs of guidance and judgment between right and wrong

    It's a poor sentence. Is it a guide for right and wrong for some other species besides humans?
