* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ مَا قَطَعْتُمْ مِّن لِّينَةٍ أَوْ تَرَكْتُمُوهَا قَآئِمَةً عَلَىٰ أُصُولِهَا فَبِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِيُخْزِيَ ٱلْفَاسِقِينَ }

Whatever palm-trees you cut down O Muslims or left standing on their roots it was by God’s leave He gave you the choice in this matter and in order that by giving you leave to cut them down He might disgrace those who are immoral the Jews in return for their objection that the cutting down of productive trees was deliberate spoiling of the land.
