Ahmed Ali

God advances the example of Noah's wife and the wife of Lot for those who do not believe. They were married to Our two pious devotees, but they were unfaithful to them, and even (the apostles) could not avail them in the least against God; and it was said to them: "Enter Hell with those (who are condemned) to enter it."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : allah warned 'a'ishah and hafsah because they hurt the prophet (pbuh) by mentioning the example of the wives of noah and lot, saying: (allah citeth) allah explains (an example) a trait (for those who disbelieve) by mentioning the two disbelieving women: (the wife of noah) wahilah (and the wife of lot) wa'ilah, (who were under two of our righteous slaves) messengers (yet betrayed them) yet opposed them in religion, displaying belief outwardly while hiding their disbelief inwardly, such that they kept their hypocrisy in their hearts; but they did not betray their husbands in the sense that they committed adultery, for no wife of a prophet had ever done this, (so that they the husbands availed them naught) benefited them naught (against allah) against the chastisement of allah; i.e. the righteousness of their husbands did not benefit them while they were disbelievers (and it was said (unto them): enter the fire) in the hereafter (along with those who enter) the fire.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : god has struck a similitude for those who disbelieve: the wife of noah and the wife of lot. they were under two of our righteous servants, yet they betrayed them, in [their] religion, for they both disbelieved — noah’s wife, called wāhila, used to say to his people that he was a madman, while lot’s wife, called wā‘ila, used to tell his people the whereabouts of his guests when they stayed with him, at night by lighting a fire, and during the day by making smoke. so they, that is, noah and lot, did not avail the two women in any way against god, against his chastisement, and it was said, to the two women: ‘enter, both of you, the fire along with the incomers’, from among the disbelievers of the peoples of noah and lot.
