* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَإِنِّي خِفْتُ ٱلْمَوَالِيَ مِن وَرَآءِى وَكَانَتِ ٱمْرَأَتِي عَاقِراً فَهَبْ لِي مِن لَّدُنْكَ وَلِيّاً }

And truly I fear my kinsfolk namely those who will succeed me as closest after me in kinship such as my paternal cousins after me that is after my death I fear for the religion lest they forsake it as You have witnessed in the case of the Children of Israel in the way that they changed their religion and my wife is barren she does not conceive. So grant me from Yourself a successor a son
