More explanation

[2] 1. [I swear] by the severe heat of [the region of] the noon-time a!


[3] 2. And [by] the night when it shall be quiet and everlasting!


[4] 3. Your Lord has not forsaken you, [Mohammed], nor has He hated you. b


[5] 4. And surely [what We have prepared for you] for the Next Life is far better for you than [all that is in] the first [life of the World.]


[6] 5. And assuredly, [in the Next Life] your Lord [O Mohammed] will grant you [the favor of honor and intercession], and you will be well-contented.


1 a He means by it the long day which has been explained in soora (or chapter) 92 and other chapters.







3 b That was when the revelation was suspended from the Prophet for fifteen days, so the associaters said mocking and gloating about the Prophet: Mohammed, your Lord has forsaken and hated you!



[7] 6. Did He not find you an orphan, and shelter you a?


[8] 7. Did He not find you astray [from the religion], and guide you?b


[9] 8. Did He not know [that] you were poor and responsible about a family, and enrich you [by trading and by the wealth of your wife Khadijah]?


6 a It means: He gave you shelter with your grandfather Abdul-muttalib, then when he died, He gave you shelter with your uncle Abu Talib.




7 b To His religion by revelation and inspiration.



[10] 9. Therefore, as for the orphan: oppress him not a.


[11] 10. As for the beggar: scold him not b.


[12] 11. And as for your Lord's favor c [on you]: 'rehearse and proclaim' it [to people.] d


9 a With any annoying word, if he asks of you or wrangles with you.




10 b If he insists on his begging and speaks much.




11 c It is the message which God favored him with.

This is confirmed by His saying be glorified in the Quran 52: 29, which means:

(Therefore [O Mohammed], admonish [your people with the Quran]; for with your Lord's blessing [making you, an apostle] you are neither a soothsayer nor mad [as do they claim.])

It means: With the revelation and the message which God has given you, you are neither soothsayer as they claim, nor mad or possessed as they say.

11 d The meaning:

Proclaim your message and tell people and do not conceal your mission.



By God's help, the interpretation of the soora 93 of the Quran is completed;

So (praise be to God: Lord of the worlds.)
