Tafsir

And We did not send you except to all (kaaffatan is a circumstantial qualifier referring to al-naas, 'mankind', and is made to precede [li'l-naas] because of the importance attached to it) of mankind [both] as a bearer of good tidings, to believers, of the Paradise, and a warner, to the disbelievers, of chastisement, but most people, such as the disbelievers of Mecca, do not know, this.
