Quran 27 Verse 37 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah An-Naml ayat 37, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(27:37) Envoy, go back to those who sent you and we shall certainly come upon them with hosts[42] whom they will be unable to resist. We shall drive them out from there, and they will suffer humiliation and disgrace.”


42. There is a subtle gap between this and the previous sentence, which one can easily fill up by a careful study of the discourse. It means this: “O messengers, take these gift back to the people who have sent you. They will either have to yield to our first proposal, i.e. they should come before us as Muslims, or we shall bring forces against them.”
