* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ إِلاَّ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّالِحَاتِ وَذَكَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيراً وَٱنتَصَرُواْ مِن بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُواْ وَسَيَعْلَمْ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوۤاْ أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ }

Save those poets who believe and perform righteous deeds and remember God frequently in other words those whom poetry does not distract from the remembrance of God and vindicate themselves by lampooning the disbelievers after they have been wronged by the disbelievers’ reviling of them as belonging together with all believers — such individuals are not reprehensible. God exalted be He says God does not like the utterance of evil words out loud unless a person has been wronged Q. 4148; He exalted be He also says so whoever commits aggression against you commit aggression against him in the manner that he committed against you Q. 2194; and those poets and others who are wrongdoers will soon know the reversal the return with which they will meet by which they will return after death.
