Tafsir

Then eat from every [kind of] fruit, and follow, enter, the ways of your Lord, [follow] His paths in seeking pastures, [ways] made easily accessible' (dhululan is the plural of dhalool, and is a circumstantial qualifier referring to al-subul, 'the ways', in other words, [those paths] disposed for you, such that they pose no difficulty for you, even if it should be rough [terrain], and [such that] you would not lose your way when returning therefrom, even if it be far away; it [dhululan] is also said to be [a circumstantial qualifier] referring to the person of [the pronominal suffix of] fa'slukee, 'you follow', meaning [in this case] [follow those paths] in compliance with what is required of you). There comes forth from their bellies a drink, namely, honey, of diverse hues, wherein is a cure for mankind, from [all] ailments; it is also said [that it means that it is a cure only] for some [ailments], as indicated by the indefinite [noun] shifaa'un, 'a cure'; or [that it is a cure] for all [ailments] when supplemented with some other [remedy]; or without these [other remedies] but with the resolve (niyya) [to get better]. The Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him used to prescribe it for anyone suffering from stomach pains, as reported by the two Shaykhs [Bukhaaree and Muslim]. Surely in that there is a sign for a people who reflect, upon God's handiwork, exalted be He.
