* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ خَلْقُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ وَٱخْتِلاَفُ أَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَأَلْوَانِكُمْ إِنَّ فِي ذٰلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّلْعَالِمِينَ }

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the differences of your tongues that is your languages such as Arabic non-Arabic and so on and your colours such as white or black or otherwise even though all of you are originally the offspring of the same man and woman. Surely in that there are signs indications of His power exalted be He for all peoples this may be vocalised either as li’l-‘ālamīna or li’l-‘ālimīna so it means either rational creatures or people of knowledge respectively.
