فَبَدَّلَ الَّذِيْنَ ظَلَمُوْا مِنْہُمْ قَوْلًا غَيْرَ الَّذِيْ قِيْلَ لَہُمْ فَاَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْہِمْ رِجْزًا مِّنَ السَّمَاۗءِ بِمَا كَانُوْا يَظْلِمُوْنَ۝۱۶۲ۧ

Ahmed Ali

The wicked among them changed and perverted the word We had spoken to a word unpronounced; so We sent from heaven retribution on them for all their wickedness.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (but those of them who did wrong) the sinning people (changed the word which had been told them for another saying) they were commanded to say "hittah [there is no deity except allah; or as in the other meaning: forgive our sins"] but instead said "hintah [wheat]", (and we sent down upon them wrath from heaven) we sent upon them the plague from heaven (for their wrong-doing) for changing what they were commanded to say.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : but the evildoers among them substituted a saying other than that which had been said to them, they said instead, ‘a grain inside a hair’ and entered [the gate] dragging themselves on their rears. so we sent down upon them terror, a chastisement, from the heaven for their evildoing.
