And had We not given thee strength, thou wouldst nearly have inclined to them a little.

Tafsir

And if We had not made you [stand] firm, upon the Truth, by way of [divine] protection ('isma), certainly you might have, you nearly, inclined to them a little, because of the extent of their deception and their persistence. This [statement] is explicit about the fact that the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him neither inclined nor came close to doing so.
