وَّاَنَّا لَا نَدْرِيْۗ اَشَرٌّ اُرِيْدَ بِمَنْ فِي الْاَرْضِ اَمْ اَرَادَ بِہِمْ رَبُّہُمْ رَشَدًا۝۱۰ۙ
Waanna la nadree asharrun oreeda biman fee alardi am arada bihim rabbuhum rashadan


Ahmed Ali

We do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and we know not whether) in preventing us from listening (harm is boded unto all who are in the earth, or whether their lord intendeth guidance for them) or whether their lord intends guidance, goodness and the correct course for them; it is also said that this means: we do not know whether evil is intended for the people of the earth by the advent of muhammad (pbuh) such that if they do not believe in him they will be destroyed or it is good, guidance and the correct course that their lord intends for them if they believe in him.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and we do not know, by not being able to eavesdrop by stealth, whether ill is intended for those who are in the earth, or whether their lord intends for them good.
