* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ ضَرَبَ لَكُمْ مَّثَلاً مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ هَلْ لَّكُمْ مِّن مَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ مِّن شُرَكَآءَ فِي مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ فَأَنتُمْ فِيهِ سَوَآءٌ تَخَافُونَهُمْ كَخِيفَتِكُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ كَذَلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ ٱلآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ }

He has struck He has coined for you O idolaters a similitude that is actually drawn from yourselves and it is as follows do you have among those whom your right hands own that is to say among your servants any partners of yourselves who may share in what We have provided for you of property and so on so that you and they are equal therein fearing them as you fear your own folk just as you fear those free men like you? the interrogative is meant as a negation in other words ‘your servants are not partners of yours in what you own so how can you make some of God’s servants partners of His. So We detail the signs so We explain them in such detail for people who understand a people who reflect.
