|The Qur'an descended to give Glad Tidings and to warn|
(So, We have made this easy) meaning the Qur'an.
(in your own tongue,) This is an address to Prophet Muhammad and it means that the Qur'an is in the pure, complete and eloquent Arabic language.
﴿لِتُبَشِّرَ بِهِ الْمُتَّقِينَ﴾
(that you may give glad tidings to those who have Taqwa,) those who respond to Allah and believe in His Messenger ,
﴿وَتُنْذِرَ بِهِ قَوْماً لُّدّاً﴾
(and warn with it the people who are Ludda.) meaning, the people who have deviated away from the truth and are inclined towards falsehood. His saying,
﴿وَكَمْ أَهْلَكْنَا قَبْلَهُمْ مِّن قَرْنٍ﴾
(And how many a generation before them have We destroyed!) means from the nations that disbelieved in the signs of Allah and rejected His Messengers.
﴿هَلْ تُحِسُّ مِنْهُمْ مِّنْ أَحَدٍ أَوْ تَسْمَعُ لَهُمْ رِكْزاً﴾
(Can you find a single one of them or hear even a whisper of them) Meaning, `have you seen any of them or even heard a whisper from them.' Ibn `Abbas, Abu Al-`Aliyah, `Ikrimah, Al-Hasan Al-Basri, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Ad-Dahhak and Ibn Zayd all said, "This means any sound.'' Al-Hasan and Qatadah both said that this means, "Do you see with your eye, or hear any sound'' This is the end of the Tafsir of Surah Maryam. All praises and thanks are due to Allah. Following this will be the Tafsir of Surah Ta Ha, Allah willing and all praise is due to Allah.
