* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ قَالَ أَبَشَّرْتُمُونِي عَلَىٰ أَن مَّسَّنِيَ ٱلْكِبَرُ فَبِمَ تُبَشِّرُونَ }

He said ‘Do you give me good tidings of a boy when old age has befallen me?’ ‘alā an massaniya l-kibaru is a circumstantial qualifier in other words despite the fact of its having befallen me? So of what thing do you give me good tidings?’ an interrogative meant to indicate amazement.
