Ahmed Ali

The evil they perpetrated overtook them, and what they mocked has turned upon them.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (so that the evil of what they did) so the punishment for what they did and said of transgressions (smote them, and that which they used to mock surrounded them) the punishment for mocking the prophets was decreed and inflicted upon them; it is also said that this means: the punishment which they were mocking descended upon them.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : so that the evils of what they did smote them, that is, the requital of these [evil things smote them], and there besieged, it was sent down [against], them that which they used to mock, namely, the chastisement.
