Ahmed Ali

And you are free to live upon it, --



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and thou art an indweller of this city) and it is also said that this means: allah has made lawful for you in this city that which he did not make lawful to anyone before or after you; and it is also said that this means: you are excused regarding that which you do in this city.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and you, o muhammad (s), have free disposal of, sanction for, this land, in that you will be given permission to fight in it — and indeed god fulfilled this promise to him on the day of the conquest [of mecca] (thus this is a parenthetical statement intervening between that by which the oath has been sworn and that which is a supplement thereto).

Sahl al-Tustari

تفسير : and you have free disposal of this city;this means: ‘on the day of the conquest of mecca, we made it legitimate for you, so that you could kill whomever you wished among the disbelievers’, just as the prophet <img border="0" src="images/salatonmassenger.jpg" width="24" height="22"> said: ‘it was never made legitimate for anyone before, nor will it be made legitimate to anyone after me. however, it was made legitimate for me just for one hour in a day.’ god, exalted is he, swore by mecca due to the fact that his prophet resided there, as a way of honouring him and humiliating his enemies.
