Quran 23 Verse 118 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Mu’minun ayat 118, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(23:118) And say, (O Muhammad): “My Lord, forgive us and have mercy on us, for You are the Best of those that are merciful.”[107]


107. Compare and contrast this prayer with (verse 109). Here the Prophet (peace be upon him) has been told to make the same prayer as contained in (verse 109), as if to say, You (and your followers) should supplicate Allah with the same prayer so that, if the people scoff at you, they themselves might provide a proof of a strong case against themselves.
