Ahmed Ali

Their confidential counsels are seldom for the good, save of those who talk of charity or goodness or peace among men. Whosoever does so for the pleasure of God, We shall give him an ample reward.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (there is no good in much of their) i.e. of the clan of tu'mah's (secret conferences save (in) him who enjoineth almsgiving) him who encourages the giving of alms to the poor (and kindness) giving a loan to another person (and peace making among the people) reconciliation between tu'mah and zayd ibn samin, the jew. (whoso doeth that) giving alms and lending money, (seeking the good pleasure of allah) only seeking allah's contentment, (we shall bestow on him a vast reward) in paradise.
