Ahmed Ali

Man is made of inordinate haste. We will show you Our signs, then you will not desire to hasten (the punishment).



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (man) i.e. adam (is made of haste) he is hasty; it is also said that this means: man, al-nadr ibn al-harth, was created hasty, for he wanted chastisement to be hastened for him. (i shall show you my portents) i shall show you the signs of my divine oneness in the horizons; it is also said that this means: i will show the signs of my punishment of you through the sword on the day of badr, (but ask me not to hasten) my chastisement before its appointed time.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : the following was revealed regarding their demand that chastisement be hastened: man was created of haste, that is to say, because he is so hasty in his affairs, it is as if he had been created out of it. assuredly i shall show you my signs, my promises of chastisement, so do not demand that i hasten, in [sending] it. and so he [god] made them suffer death at [the battle of] badr.
