فَلْیَدْعُ نَادِیَہٗ ﴿ۙ۱۷﴾

So let him now call his gang!

Tafsir al-Baghawi                                                        تفسیر البغوی                            

قَالَ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ: لَمَّا نَهَى أَبُو جَهْلٍ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَنِ الصَّلَاةِ انْتَهَرَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَقَالَ أَبُو جَهْلٍ أَتَنْهَرُنِي [يَا مُحَمَّدُ لَقَدْ عَلِمْتَ مَا بِهَا أَكْثَرُ نَادِيًا مِنِّي؟ ثُمَّ قَالَ] : (5) فَوَاللَّهِ لَأَمْلَأَنَّ عَلَيْكَ هَذَا الْوَادِي إِنْ شِئْتَ خَيْلًا جُرْدًا وَرِجَالًا مُرْدًا

قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ: {فَلْيَدْعُ نَادِيَهُ} أَيْ قَوْمَهُ وَعَشِيرَتَهُ

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas – may Allah be pleased with them – said:  When abu jahl stopped the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – from praying Salah, the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – reprimanded him, then abu jahl said, “Are you reprimanding me, O Muhammad?!  You know that most will respond to my call and I swear by Allah, I shall definitely appoint this entire valley upon you, and if you wish, I shall fill it with swift horses and young men.

Allah Almighty stated:  So let him now call his gang! i.e. his people and his clan.

Tafsir al-Jalalain                                                                                                                        تفسیر الجلالین                                                

{فَلْيَدْعُ نَادِيهِ} أَيْ أَهْل نَادِيهِ وَهُوَ الْمَجْلِس يُنْتَدَى يَتَحَدَّث فِيهِ الْقَوْم وَكَانَ قَالَ لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم لما انتهزه حَيْثُ نَهَاهُ عَنْ الصَّلَاة لَقَدْ عَلِمْت مَا بِهَا رَجُل أَكْثَر نَادِيًا مِنِّي لَأَمْلَأَنَّ عَلَيْك هَذَا الْوَادِي إِنْ شِئْت خَيْلًا جُرْدًا وَرِجَالًا مردا

So let him now call his gang! i.e. the members of his council — a place of assembly where people gather to talk. He (abu jahl) had said to the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – in reproof, having forbidden him from prayer, ‘You are well aware that there is none in this [town] who has [recourse to] as large a council [of men] as I do. Verily, I shall fill this [entire] valley with mature steeds and young men [in battle] against you if you so wish!’
