اَلَیۡسَ اللہُ بِاَحْکَمِ الْحٰکِمِیۡنَ ٪﴿۸﴾

Is not Allah the Greatest Judge upon all judges?

Tafsir al-Tabari                                                             تفسیر الطبری                                

أَلَيْسَ اللَّهُ يَا مُحَمَّدُ بِأَحْكَمِ مِنْ حَكَمَ فِي أَحْكَامِهَ، وَفَصْلِ قَضَائِهِ بَيْنَ عِبَادِهِ وَكَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا قَرَأَ ذَلِكَ فِيمَا بَلَغَنَا قَالَ: بَلَى

Is not Allah, O Muhammad, the Greatest Judge upon all judges, to issue His Verdict and to Judge for His servants?  And whenever the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – used to read which he passed on to us (this verse), he said, “Yes, of course (You are, O Allah)!”

Tafsir Al-Tabari (Tafsir Ibn Jareer / Jame’ al-Bayaan fi Taweel al-Quraan) of Imam Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn Jareer al-Tabri t D. 310 A.H.

Tafsir al-Jalalain                                                                                                                        تفسیر الجلالین                                                

{أَلَيْسَ اللَّه بِأَحْكَم الْحَاكِمِينَ} هُوَ أَقْضَى الْقَاضِينَ وَحُكْمه بِالْجَزَاءِ مِنْ ذَلِكَ

وَفِي الْحَدِيث مَنْ قَرَأَ وَالتِّين إِلَى آخِرهَا فَلْيَقُلْ بَلَى وَأَنَا على ذلك من الشاهدين

Is not Allah the Greatest Judge upon all judges?, the most just of all judges. His passing judgement by means of requital is one such example.

In a Hadeeth it is stated, “Whoever recites Surah Al-Teen to the end of it, then he should say, “Yes Indeed! And I am of those who bear witness to this!”

Tafsir al-Jalalain of Imam Jalaaluddin Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Mahalli al-Shafe’i t D. 864 A.H. and Imam Jalaaluddin Abd al-Rahman ibn Abi Bakr al-Suyooti al-Shafe’i t D. 911 A.H.
