Ahmed Ali

"Make long coats of mail," (We said), "and fix their links, and do the right. I surely see whatsoever you do."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (saying: make thou long coats of mail and measure the links (thereof)) the measure of a nail such that it is neither bigger nor smaller than it. (and do ye right) sincerely to him. (lo! i am seer) aware (of what ye do) of good or evil.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and we said: ‘fashion, from it, long coats of mail — complete suits of armour which the person wearing it drags behind him along the ground — and measure [well] the links’, that is, in the weaving of the coats (the maker of these is called sarrād). in other words, make them so that the rings thereof are arranged properly. and act, o family of david, together with him, righteously. indeed i am seer of what you do, and will requite you for it accordingly.
