* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَهُ مُلْكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ يُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَغْفِرُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ }

Do you not know the interrogative here is meant as an affirmative that to God belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth? He chastises him for whom He wills chastisement for and forgives him for whom He wills forgiveness and God has power over all things including chastising and forgiving.
