Ahmed Ali

Whosoever desires honour (should remember) that all honour is with God. All good words ascend to Him, and all good deeds He exalts. As for those who are plotting evil, there is severe punishment for them, and their plots will be fruitless.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (whoso desireth power) i.e. whoever desires to know to whom belongs power, might and invincibility, ((should know that) all power belongeth to allah) as belongs to him might and invincibility. (unto him good words) the expression “there is no deity save allah” (ascend, and the pious deed doth he exalt) he accepts pious deeds through the profession of “there is no deity except allah”; (but those who plot iniquities) those who associate partners with allah; it is also said this means: those who scheme to expel, imprison or assassinate muhammad (pbuh) in dar al-nadwah, (theirs will be an awful doom) as awful as can be; (and the plotting of such (folk)) i.e. abu jahl and his host (will come to naught) will not succeed. it is also said that this verse was revealed about the people who deal with usury.

Sahl al-Tustari

تفسير : …to him ascends the good word, and as for righteous conduct, he raises it up…he said:its outer meaning is supplication (duʿāʾ) and charity (ṣadaqa), and its inner meaning is remembrance(dhikr), while acting upon what you know and advancing through [following] the sunna. he raises it up means, he makes it reach [him] due to the presence within it of sincerity towards god, exalted is he.his words:
