* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلاَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِي خَزَآئِنُ ٱللَّهِ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ ٱلْغَيْبَ وَلاَ أَقُولُ إِنِّي مَلَكٌ وَلاَ أَقُولُ لِلَّذِينَ تَزْدَرِيۤ أَعْيُنُكُمْ لَن يُؤْتِيَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ خَيْراً ٱللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِيۤ أَنْفُسِهِمْ إِنِّيۤ إِذاً لَّمِنَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ }

And I do not say to you “I possess the treasure houses of God” nor “I have knowledge of the Unseen”; nor do I say “I am an angel” nay I am human like you. Nor do I say to those whom your eyes scorn that God will not give them any good — God knows best what is in their souls in their hearts. Lo! if I were to say this then indeed I would be of the evildoers’.
