Ahmed Ali

And We made the sky a well-protected roof. Still they turn away from His signs!



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and we have made the sky a roof) for the earth (withheld (from them)) such that it does not fall; it is also said that this means: it is protected from the satans by the stars. (yet they) i.e. the people of mecca (turn away from) they do not believe nor reflect upon (its portents) its sun, moon and stars.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and we made the heaven a roof, for the earth, [functioning] like the roof of a house, preserved, from collapsing; and yet of the signs thereof, namely, [the signs of this heaven such as] the sun, the moon and the stars, they are disregardful, failing to reflect on them and thus realise that the creator of such [things] can have no partner.
