[2] 1. Say, [Mohammed]: "I seek protection [of God] the Lord a [and Creator] of men,"

 

[3] 2. "The King [and Owner] of men," b

 

[4] 3. "The God of men," c

 

[5] 4. "From the evil of the invisible whispering d,"

 

[6] 5. "That whispers e in the breasts of men,"

 

[Then God be glorified explained from whom such whispering or suggestion comes, and He said:]

4 d Or that which slinks away from the sight!

 

 

 

5 e The whispering or suggestion issues from devils and evil souls, and the implication of the words reaches to the memory so man will perceive it and understand its meaning.

 

 

 

6 f Devils in fact are the disobedient genies.

6 g It means: the spirits of the disobedient and hypocritical men.

 

 

The interpreter of the Quran and the Bible: Mohammed Ali Hassan Al-Hilly said:

By God's help, the interpretation of the Glorious Quran entitled (The interpretation of the Revelation) is completed; written by Mohammed-Ali, son of Hassan, son of Mahmood, Al-Hilly by residence, the Iraqi by country.

So praise be to God: for His guidance and for granting us success to achieve this, and for His Grace and favor on us.

 

The Translator E. A. Nassir said:

God be glorified honored me to translate this valuable interpretation of the Quran; for His surplus is so tremendous on us: to see whether we will be grateful or ungrateful; so all praise and gratitude is due to Him: the Praiseworthy, the Most Gracious.
