Ahmed Ali

But when they forgot to remember the warning, We saved those who prohibited evil, but inflicted on the wicked a dreadful punishment -- requital for their disobedience.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and when they forgot that whereof they had been reminded) and when they left what they were commanded to do, (we rescued those who forbade wrong) i.e. catching fish on the sabbath, (and visited those who did wrong) by catching fish on the sabbath (with dreadful) a severe (punishment because they were evil-livers) because they were transgressors.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and when they forgot, when they overlooked, that whereof they had been reminded, [that for which they had been] admonished, and did not desist, we delivered those who forbade evil, and seized those who did wrong, through transgression, with a grievous, terrible, chastisement for their wickedness.
