Quran 48 Verse 21 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Fath ayat 21, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(48:21) He also promises you other spoils which you have not yet taken, but Allah has encompassed them.[40] Allah has power over everything.


40. Most probably this is a reference to the conquest of Makkah. The same is the opinion of Qatadah and Ibn Jarir. It seems to mean this: Though Makkah has not yet fallen to you, Allah has encircled it, and as a result of this victory at Hudaibiyah, it will also fall to you.
