* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ تَكَادُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِن فَوْقِهِنَّ وَٱلْمَلاَئِكَةُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِمَن فِي ٱلأَرْضِ أَلاَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ }

The heavens are well-nigh read yakādu or takādu rent asunder yanfatirna a variant reading has yatafattarna from above one another in other words well-nigh is each one torn away from above the one below it because of the magnitude of God exalted be He and the angels glorify with praise of their Lord in other words they are continuously engaged in praise of Him and ask forgiveness for those believers on earth. Verily God is the Forgiving to His friends the Merciful to them.
