* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَإِذَا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُم بِمَا ضَرَبَ لِلرَّحْمَـٰنِ مَثَلاً ظَلَّ وَجْهُهُ مُسْوَدّاً وَهُوَ كَظِيمٌ }

And when one of them is given the good tidings of that which he has attributed to the Compassionate One of that which he has likened to Him by the ascription to Him of daughters — for a child is likened to its parent; in other words when one of them is informed that a daughter has been born to him his face becomes darkened transformed into one laden with anguish and he chokes inwardly filled with anguish so how can such a person then attribute daughters to Him? Exalted be He high above such claims.
