O my people, what is wrong with me that I am calling you to preservation, while you invite me to the Fire!



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and, o my people! what aileth me that i call you unto deliverance) unto allah's divine oneness-this is also the saying of ezekiel-(when ye call me unto the fire) while you are calling me to the deeds of the dwellers of the fire: i.e. to idolatry?

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and o my people! [think] what makes me call you to deliverance when you call me to the fire?
