Tafsir

An-Nahl (the Bees) Meccan, except for the last three verses, which are Medinese; it consists of 128 verses, revealed after [soorat] al-Kahf. When the idolaters found chastisement slow in coming, the following was revealed: God's commandment has come, that is, the Hour [has come] ([this verb] ataa is in the past tense because it means that [the event therein described] will come to pass) in other words, it [God's commandment] is close at hand, so do not seek to hasten it, do not demand it before its [due] time, for it will come to pass without doubt. Glory be to Him - an affirmation of His transcendence - and exalted be He above what they associate, with Him, in the way of others.
