مَا يَفْعَلُ اللہُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ اِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ وَاٰمَنْتُمْ۝۰ۭ وَكَانَ اللہُ شَاكِرًا عَلِــيْمًا۝۱۴۷
Ma yafAAalu Allahu biAAathabikum in shakartum waamantum wakana Allahu shakiran AAaleeman


Ahmed Ali

Why should God punish you if you acknowledge the truth and believe? God is responsive to gratitude and is cognisant.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (what concern hath allah for your punishment) why should allah punish you (if ye are thankful (for his mercies)) if you believe inwardly in his divine oneness (and believe (in him)) and you have faith inwardly? (allah is ever responsive) he is responsive for the little that is done in his sake and rewards abundantly for it, (aware) of those who are thankful and of those who are not.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : why would god chastise you if you are thankful, of his favours, and believe, in him? (the interrogative is meant as a denial, in other words: he would not punish you). god is ever thankful, of the deeds of believers, rewarding them, knowing, of his creation.
