Translation

(Abundant) was the produce this man had: he said to his companion, in the course of a mutual argument: "more wealth have I than you, and more honour and power in (my following of) men."

Tafsir

And he had, together with his two the Paradises, fruit (read thamar, thumur, or thumr, [all of which constitute] the plural of thamra, [sing.] 'a fruit', similar [in pattern] to shajara [pl.] shajar, khashaba [pl.] khushb, or badana [pl.] budn) and he said to his companion, the believer, as he conversed with him, boasting before him: 'I have more wealth than you and am stronger in respect of men', in respect of clansmen.
