(68:17) We have put them [i.e., the Makkans] to test even as We put to test the owners of the orchard when they vowed that they would gather the fruit of their orchard in the morning,
12. Here, one should also keep (Surah Al-Kahf, Ayat 32-44) in view, in which the parable of the owners of two gardens has been cited for teaching a lesson.
17. Verily, We have tried them as We tried the People of the Garden, when they swore to pluck the fruits in the morning, 18. Without (saying: “If Allah wills.”) 19. Then there passed over it a Ta’if from your Lord while they were asleep. 20. So by the morning, it became like As-Sarim. 21. Then they called out (one to another as soon) as the morning broke. 22. Saying: “Go to your tilth in the morning, if you would pluck (the fruits).” 23. So they departed, and they were whispering: 24. “No poor person shall enter upon you into it today.” 25. And they went in the morning with Hard Qadirin. 26. But when they saw it, they said: “Verily, we have gone astray.” 27. “Nay! Indeed we are deprived!” 28. The Awsat among them said; “Did I not tell you, `Why do you not Tusabbihun.”’
