(80:31) A few careless words

Ibn Kathir mentions in his Tafsir:

“Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (ra) was asked about the meaning of this verse. He replied:

`What sky would shade me and what earth would carry me if I said about the Book of Allah that which I did not have knowledge of.’ ”

Many of us are quick to interpret the words of Allah ﷻ with little study or knowledge, particularly when asked a question.
