وَلَقَدْ زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاۗءَ الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيْحَ وَجَعَلْنٰہَا رُجُوْمًا لِّلشَّـيٰطِيْنِ وَاَعْتَدْنَا لَہُمْ عَذَابَ السَّعِيْرِ۝۵
Walaqad zayyanna alssamaa alddunya bimasabeeha wajaAAalnaha rujooman lilshshayateeni waaAAtadna lahum AAathaba alssaAAeeri


Ahmed Ali

We have adorned the lowest sky with lamps, and made them missiles against the devils, for whom We have prepared a torment of most intense fire.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and verily we have beatified the world's heaven) the first heaven (with lamps) with stars, (and we have made them) i.e. the stars (missiles for the devils) such that some of them become bewitched, some are killed while others are burnt, (and for them) for the devils (we have prepared) in the hereafter (the doom of flame.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and verily we have adorned the lowest heaven, the one closest to the earth, with lamps, with stars, and made them missiles against the devils, should they [attempt to] listen by stealth, in which case a meteor of fire detaches itself from the star, just like a brand is taken from a fire, and either kills that jinn or deprives him of his senses: it is not that the star itself is displaced from its position; and we have prepared for them the chastisement of the blaze, the ignited fire.
