* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ ٱلنَّاسَ عَلَىٰ مَآ آتَٰهُمُ ٱللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَآ آلَ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ وَٱلْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُّلْكاً عَظِيماً }

Or nay are they jealous of people namely of the Prophet s for the bounty that God has bestowed upon them in the way of prophethood and abundance of women? In other words they wish that he be deprived of such things saying ‘If he were truly a prophet he would not be concerned with women’. For We gave the House of Abraham his forefather the likes of Moses David and Solomon the Book and wisdom and prophethood and We gave them a mighty kingdom David had ninety–nine women and Solomon had a thousand free women and slavegirls.
