Ahmed Ali

We have sent you only as a bearer of good tidings and admonisher for all mankind; yet most people do not understand.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and we have not sent thee) o muhammad (save as a bringer of good tidings) paradise for those who believe in allah (and a warner) from the fire for those who disbelieve in him (unto all mankind) to the jinn and human beings; (but most of mankind) the people of mecca (know not) this nor believe in it.
