* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَتِلْكَ حُجَّتُنَآ ءَاتَيْنَٰهَآ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ عَلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ نَرْفَعُ دَرَجَٰتٍ مَّن نَّشَآءُ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ حَكِيمٌ عَلِيمٌ }

That tilka is the subject of the sentence and is substituted by the following hujjatunā argument of Ours with which Abraham inferred God’s Oneness as in the case of the setting stars and what came afterwards; the predicate is what follows We bestowed upon Abraham We guided him to it as an argument against his people. We raise up in degrees whom We will read this as a genitive annexation darajāti man nashā’ or as accusative nunation darajātin man nashā’ degrees in knowledge and wisdom; surely your Lord is Wise in His actions Knowing of His creation.
