Ahmed Ali

Satan threatens you with want, and orders you (to commit) shameful acts. But God promises His pardon and grace, for God is bounteous and all-knowing.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (the devil promiseth you destitution) makes you scared of poverty upon spending in charity (and enjoineth on you lewdness) by not giving the poor-due. (but allah promiseth you forgiveness) of your sins for giving the poor-due (from himself with bounty) with something in exchange as well as a reward in the hereafter. (allah is all-embracing) in that he replaces what you spend and also forgives sins, (all-knowing) of your intentions and spending.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : satan promises you poverty, by making you fear [loss] when you make a voluntary almsgiving, and so you withhold it, and enjoins you to indecency, niggardliness and the impeding of almsgiving; but god promises you, in return for your expenditure, his pardon, for your sins, and his bounty, as sustenance from him; and god is embracing, in his bounty, knowing, the one who expends.

Sahl al-Tustari

تفسير : satan promises you poverty and enjoins you to indecency…he was asked about these words and replied, ‘[he, satan, does this] so that they should take somethingwhich is not lawfully theirs, and deposit it in other than its proper place.’
