Translation

(Saying),"We feed you for the sake of Allah alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.

Tafsir

'We feed you only for the sake of God, seeking His reward. We do not desire any reward from you, nor any thanks: this contains the reason for the giving of the food. Now, do they actually say this, or is it that God knows this [to be true] of them and has thus praised them by [mentioning] it? The two are different opinions [regarding this matter].
