|Shade, Places of Refuge in the Mountains, Garments and Coats of Mail are also Blessings from Allah|
﴿وَاللَّهُ جَعَلَ لَكُمْ مِّمَّا خَلَقَ ظِلَـلاً﴾
(And Allah has made shade for you out of that which He has created,) Qatadah said: "This means trees.''
﴿وَجَعَلَ لَكُمْ مِّنَ الْجِبَالِ أَكْنَـناً﴾
(and He has made places of refuge in the mountains for you,) meaning fortresses and strongholds.
﴿جَعَلَ لَكُمُسَرَابِيلَ تَقِيكُمُ الْحَرَّ﴾
(and He has made garments for you to protect you from the heat,) meaning clothing of cotton, linen and wool.
﴿وَسَرَبِيلَ تَقِيكُم بَأْسَكُمْ﴾
(and coats of mail to protect you from your violence.) such as shields made of layers of sheet iron, coats of mail and so on.
﴿كَذَلِكَ يُتِمُّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكُمْ﴾
(Thus does He perfect His favor for you,) meaning, thus He gives you what you need to go about your business, so that this will help you to worship and obey Him.
(that you may submit yourselves to His will). This is interpreted by the majority to mean submitting to Allah or becoming Muslim.
