Ahmed Ali

Alas for men! No apostle ever came to them but they made fun of him.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (ah, the anguish) regret and remorse (for the bondmen) on the day of judgement because they did not believe! (never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him!) they used to mock the messengers, kill them and throw them in a well.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : ah, the anguish for servants, [such as] these and their like from among those who denied the messengers and were destroyed (this [word, hasra] denotes ‘extreme agony’; the vocative here is being used metaphorically, in other words, ‘it is time for you [o anguish], so come now!’). never did a messenger come to them but that they mocked him (this [statement] is given as an explanation of the cause thereof [of the ‘agony’] since it [the statement] entails their mockery which itself results in their being destroyed and which in turn is the cause of the ‘anguish’).
