Quran 27 Verse 73 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah An-Naml ayat 73, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(27:73) Indeed Your Lord is exceedingly bountiful to mankind. Yet most of them do not give thanks.[90]


90. That is, “It is Allah’s mercy that He does not seize the culprit immediately after his commission of a crime but gives him respite to reform himself. But most people are not grateful for this, and do not utilize the period of respite for their reformation. On the contrary, when they see that they have not been taken to task immediately, they form the idea that there is none to call them to account. Therefore, they are free to do whatever they like and they should not listen to any word of admonition”.
