Ahmed Ali

And how can you disbelieve? To you are being recited the messages of God, and His prophet is among you. And whosoever holds fast to God shall verily be guided to the path that is straight.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (how can ye disbelieve) in allah. this is mentioned by way of amazement, (when it is ye unto whom allah's revelations) the qur'an containing commands and prohibitions (are recited, and his messenger) muhammad (is in your midst?) with you. (he who holdeth fast to allah) he who adheres to allah's religion and his book, (he indeed is guided unto a right path) he is directed along a clear, solid way, which is islam; it is also said this means: he has become firm on this way. this verse was revealed about mu'adh [ibn jabal] and his companions.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī
