* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ بَعْدَ إِصْلاَحِهَا وَٱدْعُوهُ خَوْفاً وَطَمَعاً إِنَّ رَحْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ مِّنَ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ }

And work not corruption in the land through idolatry and acts of disobedience after it has been set right as a result of the sending forth of messengers to it and call upon Him in fear of His punishment and in hope of His mercy — surely the mercy of God is near to the virtuous the obedient qarīb ‘near’ as the predicate of the feminine noun rahma ‘mercy’ is in the masculine because it rahma is annexed to Allāh ‘God’.
