|Indication that the Messenger and the Believers will prevail just as Musa and the Children of Israel|
﴿وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْهُدَى﴾
(And, indeed We gave Musa the guidance.) means, the guidance and light with which Allah sent him.
﴿وَأَوْرَثْنَا بَنِى إِسْرَءِيلَ الْكِتَـبَ﴾
(and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture.) means, `We caused them to prevail in the end and they inherited the land and accumulated wealth of Fir`awn, because of their patience in obeying Allah and following His Messenger Musa.' The Scripture which they inherited, the Tawrah, was
﴿هُدًى وَذِكْرَى لاٌّوْلِى الاٌّلْبَـبِ ﴾
(A guide and a reminder for men of understanding.) i.e. those of a sound and upright nature.
(So be patient) means, `O Muhammad,'
﴿إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ﴾
(Verily, the promise of Allah is true,) means, `We have promised that your word will prevail and that the ultimate victory will be for you and those who follow you, and Allah does not break His promises. What We have told you is true and there is no doubt in it whatsoever.'
(and ask forgiveness for your fault,) This encourages the Ummah to seek forgiveness.
﴿وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ بِالْعَشِىِّ﴾
(and glorify the praises of your Lord in the `Ashi) meaning, at the end of the day and the beginning of the night,
(and in the Ibkar.) meaning, at the beginning of the day and the end of the night.
﴿إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُجَـدِلُونَ فِى ءَايَـتِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ سُلْطَـنٍ أَتَـهُمْ﴾
(Verily, those who dispute about the Ayat of Allah, without any authority having come to them,) means, they try to refute the truth with falsehood, and to refute sound evidence with dubious arguments, having no proof or evidence from Allah.
﴿إِن فِى صُدُورِهِمْ إِلاَّ كِبْرٌ مَّـا هُم بِبَـلِغِيهِ﴾
(there is nothing else in their breasts except pride. They will never have it.) means, they are too proud to follow the truth and submit to the one who has brought it. But their attempts to suppress the truth and elevate falsehood will fail; the truth will prevail and their words and aspirations will be defeated.
(So seek refuge in Allah. ) means, from being like these people,
﴿إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ البَصِيرُ﴾
(Verily, it is He Who is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.) or seek refuge with Him from being like these people who dispute about the Ayat of Allah without any authority having come to them.
﴿لَخَلْقُ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ أَكْـبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ النَّاسِ وَلَـكِنَّ أَكْـثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ - وَمَا يَسْتَوِى الاٌّعْـمَى وَالْبَصِيرُ وَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ الصَّـلِحَـتِ وَلاَ الْمُسِىءُ قَلِيـلاً مَّا تَتَذَكَّرُونَ - إِنَّ السَّاعَةَ لاّتِيَـةٌ لاَّ رَيْبَ فِيهَا وَلَـكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴾
(57. The creation of the heavens and the earth is indeed greater than the creation of mankind; yet, most of the people do not know.) (58. And not equal are the blind and those who see; nor those who believe, and do righteous good deeds, and those who do evil. Little do you remember!) (59. Verily, the Hour is surely coming, there is no doubt about it, yet most men believe not.)
