* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَوْلَىٰ لَكَ فَأَوْلَىٰ }

Woe be nearer to you there is a shift from the third to the second person address here; the term awlā is a noun of action with the following lām being explicative in other words ‘what you are averse to is now near to you’ and nearer that is because you are more deserving of it woe than anyone else
