* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَتَّخَذْنَاهُمْ سِخْرِيّاً أَمْ زَاغَتْ عَنْهُمُ ٱلأَبْصَار }

Did we treat them mockingly? read sukhriyyan or sikhriyyan did we use to deride them in the life of the world the final yā’ in sikhriyyā is attributive. In other words are they missing? Or have our eyes missed them here?’ so that we have not caught sight of them. Such men were the poor among the Muslims like ‘Ammār b. Yāsir Bilāl al-Habashī Suhayb al-Rūmī and Salmān al-Fārisī.
