25 - Al-Furqan

وَہُوَ الَّذِيْ جَعَلَ الَّيْلَ وَالنَّہَارَ خِلْفَۃً لِّمَنْ اَرَادَ اَنْ يَّذَّكَّرَ اَوْ اَرَادَ شُكُوْرًا۝۶۲
Wahuwa allathee jaAAala allayla waalnnahara khilfatan liman arada an yaththakkara aw arada shukooran


Ahmed Ali

It is He who made the night and day an alternation for him who cares to reflect and be grateful.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and he it is who hath appointed night and day in succession) to each other, (for him who desireth to remember) to take admonition in their succession, (or desireth thankfulness) or desires to do righteous works, whatever he left undone at night he does it during the day, and whatever he left undone during the day he does it at night.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and he it is who made the night and day [to appear] in succession, that is, one succeeding the other, for him who desires to remember (read yadhdhakkara or yadhkura, as before [q. 25:50]) — so that if he misses [the opportunity to do] some good during the one, he can do it during the other; or desires to be thankful, for the graces of his lord to him during both [of these periods].
