Ahmed Ali

Just think! You hold them as your friends but they do not, even though you believe in all the Scriptures. When they meet you they say: "We believe;" but when they are alone they bite their fingers in rage. Say: "Die of your rage. God is aware of the secrets of the hearts."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (lo! ye are) o group of believers (those who love them) who love the jews because of the ties of marriage and suckling (though they love you not) because of the religion, (and ye believe in all the scripture) you acknowledge all the revealed books and messengers while they do not. (when they) the hypocrites among the jews (fall in with you they say: we believe) in muhammad and the qur'an and we acknowledge that his traits and description are in our scripture; (but when they go apart) and meet with each other (they bite their finger tips at you, for rage. say: perish in your rage! lo! allah is aware of what is hidden in (your) breasts) he is aware of what is in your heart of hatred and enmity.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : lo (hā, ‘lo!’, is for calling attention [to something]), there you are, o believers, you love them, on account of their kinship and their [pretence of] friendship towards you, but they love you not, since they oppose you in religion; you believe in the book, all of it, that is to say, in the books, all of them, but they do not believe in your book, and when they meet you they say, ‘we believe,’ but when they are alone, they bite at you their fingertips, in rage, in extreme fury at what they see of your mutual affection: the biting of the fingertips is used to figuratively express the severity of rage, even if there be no biting involved. say: ‘perish in your rage, that is, be this way until the end of your lives, for you shall not see what will please you; god knows what is in the breasts’, what is in the hearts, including that which these conceal.
