Quran 93 Verse 6 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Duha ayat 6, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(93:6) Did He not find you an orphan and then gave you shelter?[6]


6. That is, there can be no question of forsaking you andbeing displeased with you. We have, in fact, been good toyou ever since the time you were born as an orphan. TheProphet’s (peace be upon him) father passed away threemonths before his birth; thus he was an orphan at birth.But Allah did not leave him without support even for a day.Up to six years of age his mother nourished and lookedafter him. After her death, his grandfather took him andbrought him up with great love. He would proudly tell thepeople: My this son has a great future. When he died, hisuncle, Abu Talib, became his guardian and treated himwith such rare love that no father could treat his son better.So much so that when after his proclamation to be aProphet the entire nation turned hostile, Abu Talib alonestood firm as his chief supporter for as long as ten years.
