* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ صَنْعَةَ لَبُوسٍ لَّكُمْ لِتُحْصِنَكُمْ مِّن بَأْسِكُمْ فَهَلْ أَنتُمْ شَاكِرُونَ }

And We taught him the art of making garments namely coats of mail — which are called labūs because they are worn tulbas. He was the first human being to make them; hitherto there were only plates of armour — for you as well as all mankind to protect you read nuhsinakum the subject being ‘God’; or yuhsinakum the subject being ‘David’; or tuhsinakum the subject being ‘garments’ against your mutual violence your wars against your enemies. Will you then O people of Mecca be thankful? for My favours by believing in the Messenger — in other words be thankful to Me by doing this.
