* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلاَّ كَآفَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيراً وَنَذِيراً وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ }

And We did not send you except to all kāffatan is a circumstantial qualifier referring to al-nās ‘mankind’ and is made to precede li’l-nās because of the importance attached to it of mankind both as a bearer of good tidings to believers of Paradise and a warner to the disbelievers of chastisement but most people such as the disbelievers of Mecca do not know this.
