اَیَحْسَبُ اَنۡ لَّنۡ یَّقْدِرَ عَلَیۡہِ اَحَدٌ ۘ﴿۵﴾

Does man think that no one will ever have power over him?

Tafsir al-Baghawi                                                     تفسیر البغوی                            

{أَيَحْسَبُ} يَعْنِي أَبَا الْأَشَدَّيْنِ مِنْ قُوَّتِهِ، {أَنْ لَنْ يَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ أَحَدٌ} أَيْ: يَظُنُّ مِنْ شِدَّتِهِ أَنْ لَنْ يَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى.

 وَقِيلَ: هُوَ الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ الْمُغِيرَةِ.

Does man i.e. Abu al-Ashadd due to his might, think that no one will ever have power over him?  i.e. due to his strength he thinks that even Allah Almighty will not overpower him?

It is also said that it was regarding Waleed ibn al-Mugheerah.

أَيْ أَيَظُنُّ ابْنُ آدَمَ أَنْ لَنْ يُعَاقِبَهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ.

i.e. do the human beings think that Allah Almighty will not call him to account?!

{أَيَحْسَبُ} أَيَظُنُّ الْإِنْسَان قَوِيّ قُرَيْش وَهُوَ أَبُو الْأَشَدّ بْن كِلْدَة بِقُوَّتِهِ {إنْ} أَيْ أَنَّهُ {لَنْ يَقْدِر عَلَيْهِ أَحَد} وَاَللَّه قَادِر عَلَيْهِ

Does he suppose, does the strong man of Quraysh, namely, Abu al-Ashadd ibn Kildah, presume, on account of his strength, that no one will have power over him? Yet Allah certainly has power over him.
