* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَاهُ بَيْنَهُمْ لِيَذَّكَّرُواْ فَأَبَىٰ أَكْثَرُ ٱلنَّاسِ إِلاَّ كُفُوراً }

And verily We have distributed it the water among them so that they may remember li-yadhdhakkarū should actually be li-yatadhakkarū but the tā’ has been assimilated with the dhāl; a variant reading has li-yadhkurū that is to say so that they may remember therewith the grace of God. But most people are only intent on ingratitude on denial of the grace saying ‘We have received this rain because of such-and-such a storm’.
