* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ ثُمَّ بَدَّلْنَا مَكَانَ ٱلسَّيِّئَةِ ٱلْحَسَنَةَ حَتَّىٰ عَفَوْاْ وَّقَالُواْ قَدْ مَسَّ آبَاءَنَا ٱلضَّرَّآءُ وَٱلسَّرَّآءُ فَأَخَذْنَاهُمْ بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لاَ يَشْعُرُونَ }

Then We gave them in place of evil the chastisement good wealth and health until they multiplied and said out of ingratitude towards this grace ‘Hardship and happiness befell our fathers before’ just as it has befallen us and this is nothing but the habit of time and not the consequence of God so remain firm in what you follow. God exalted be He says So We seized them with the chastisement suddenly while they perceived not beforehand the time of its coming.
