Quran 76 Verse 18 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Insan ayat 18, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(76:18) drawn from a spring (in Paradise) called Salsabil.
20. This is to suit the taste of the Arabs who liked the wineflavored with ginger mixed water. But this flavoring will not be achieved by adding ginger mixed water to it: it will be a natural fountain which will have the flavor of gingerbut without its bitterness; Therefore, it will be called Salsabil, which implies such water as flows gently and pleasantly down the throat on account of its being sweet, light and palatable. Most commentators think that the word salsabil has been used here as an adjective of the fountain and not as a name for it.
