And do not obey every worthless habitual swearer
Heed not the type of despicable men,- ready with oaths,
And do not yield to any contemptible swearer,

Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger,
And do not obey every most contemptible (person), constantly swearing,
do not yield to any contemptible swearer,
Quran 68 Verse 10 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Qalam ayat 10, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(68:10) And do not yield to any contemptible swearer,
6. The word mahin is used for a contemptible, degraded and mean person. This is indeed a necessary quality of a person who swears many oaths. He swears an oath for every minor thing because he himself has the feeling that the people take him for a liar and would not believe him until he swore an oath. For this reason he is not only degraded in his own eyes but commands no respect in society either.
