فَلَمَّا نَسُوْا مَا ذُكِّرُوْا بِہٖ فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْہِمْ اَبْوَابَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ۝۰ۭ حَتّٰۗي اِذَا فَرِحُوْا بِمَاۗ اُوْتُوْۗا اَخَذْنٰہُمْ بَغْتَۃً فَاِذَا ہُمْ مُّبْلِسُوْنَ۝۴۴
Falamma nasoo ma thukkiroo bihi fatahna AAalayhim abwaba kulli shayin hatta itha farihoo bima ootoo akhathnahum baghtatan faitha hum mublisoona


Ahmed Ali

When they had become oblivious of what they were warned, We opened wide the gates of everything to them; yet as they rejoiced at what they were given, We caught them unawares, and they were filled with despair.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (then, when they forgot that whereof they had been reminded) when they turned their backs on that which they had been commanded with in the scripture, (we opened unto them the gates of all things) vegetation, land fertility and comfort (till, even as they were rejoicing in that which they were given) vegetation, land fertility and comfort, (we seized them unawares) with punishment, (and lo! they were dumbfounded) despairing of any good.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : so, when they forgot, [when] they neglected, that whereof they were reminded, that with which they were admonished and threatened, in the way of misery and hardship; and they did not heed the admonition, we opened (read fatahnā or fattahnā) to them the gates of all things, in the way of graces, in order to draw them on by degrees, until, when they rejoiced in what they were given, a wanton rejoicing, we seized them suddenly, with chastisement, and lo! they were confounded, despairing of anything good.
