Translation

Then did Satan make them slip from the (garden), and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been. We said: "Get ye down, all (ye people), with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood - for a time."

Tafsir

Then Satan, Iblees, caused them to slip, he caused them to be removed (fa-azallahumaa: a variant reading has fa-azaalahumaa: he caused them to be away from it) therefrom, that is, from the Garden, when he said to them, 'Shall I point you to the tree of eternity' [cf. Q. 20:120], and swore to them by God that he was only giving good advice to them, and so they ate of it; and brought them out of what they were in, of bliss; and We said, 'Go down, to earth, both of you and all those comprised by your seed; some of you, of your progeny, an enemy to the other, through your wronging one another; and in the earth a dwelling, a place of settlement, shall be yours, and enjoyment, of whatever of its vegetation you may enjoy, for a while', [until] the time your terms [of life] are concluded.
