* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ قَالَ سَلاَمٌ عَلَيْكَ سَأَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكَ رَبِّيۤ إِنَّهُ كَانَ بِي حَفِيّاً }

He said ‘Peace be to you from me — in other words I shall not cause you any harm. I shall ask forgiveness of my Lord for you. Truly He is ever gracious to me hafiyyan from hafiyyun meaning bārrun ‘kind’ answering my prayers. And indeed he Abraham fulfilled his above-mentioned promise as described in sūrat al-Shu‘arā’ And forgive my father Q. 2686; but this was before it became clear to him that he Abraham’s father was an enemy of God as mentioned in sūrat Barā’a Q. 9114.
