Qala AAifreetun mina aljinni ana ateeka bihi qabla an taqooma min maqamika wainne AAalayhi laqawiyyun ameenun


Ahmed Ali

A crafty jinn said: "I will bring it before you rise from your seat, for I am strong and trustworthy."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (a) mighty (stalwart of the jinn) called 'amr (said: i will bring it thee before thou canst rise from your place) before you leave your seat of judgement, for he used to sit for judgements until noon. (lo! i verily am strong and trusty for such work) even though it is adorned with gems, pearls, gold and silver.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī
