Translation

It is We Who have placed you with authority on earth, and provided you therein with means for the fulfilment of your life: small are the thanks that ye give!

Tafsir

And We have given you power, O Children of Adam, in the earth, and have appointed for you therein livelihoods (ma'aayish is the plural of ma'eesha), that is, the means by which you [are able to] subsist; little (qaleelan maa: maa is to emphasise the 'littleness') thanks you show, for this.
