Translation

He said: "O Adam! Tell them their names." When he had told them, Allah said: "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what ye reveal and what ye conceal?"

Tafsir

He, exalted be He, said, 'Adam, tell them, the angels, their names', all of the things named; so, he named each thing by its appellation and mentioned the wisdom behind its creation; And when he had told them their names He, exalted, said, in rebuke, 'Did I not tell you that I know the Unseen in the skies and the earth?, what is unseen in them, And I know what you reveal, what you manifested when you said, 'What, will You appoint therein .', and what you were hiding, what you were keeping secret when you were saying that God would not create anything more knowledgeable or more noble in His eyes than us.
