I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, from the accursed devil.

The Quran is not a thing for amusement.
وَالسَّمَآءِ ذَاتِ الرَّجْعِ
(11. By the sky which gives rain, again and again.)
- وَالاّرْضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدْعِ
(12. And the earth which splits.)
- إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلٌ فَصْلٌ
(13. Verily, this is the Word that separates.)
وَمَا هوَ بِالْهَزْلِ
(14. And it is not a thing for amusement.)
إِنَّهُمْ يَكِيدُونَ كَيْداً
(15. Verily, they are but plotting a plot.)
(16. And I am planning a plan.)
فَمَهِّلِ الْكَـفِرِينَ أَمْهِلْهُمْ رُوَيْداً
(17. So, give a respite to the disbelievers; deal gently with them for a while.)
Surah 86 At Tariq Verse 11-17
Tafsir Ibn Kathir
Ibn `Abbas said, “Ar-raj` means rain.” It has also been narrated from him that he said, “It means the clouds that contain rain.” He also said,
(By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again.) “This means that it rains and then it rains (again).” Qatadah said, “It returns the sustenance of the servants (creatures) every year. Were it not for this, they would all be destroyed and so would their cattle.”
(And the earth which splits.) Ibn `Abbas said, “Splitting to bring forth plant growths.” This was also said by Sa`id bin Jubayr, `Ikrimah, Abu Malik, Ad-Dahhak, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, As-Suddi and others. Concerning Allah’s statement,
(Verily, this is the Word that separates.) Ibn `Abbas said (Fasl is), “True.” Qatadah also said the same. Someone else said, “A just ruling.”
(And it is not a thing for amusement.) meaning, rather it is serious and true. Then Allah informs about the disbelievers saying that they reject Him and hinder others from His path. Allah says,
(Verily, they are but plotting a plot.) meaning, they plot against the people in their calling them to oppose the Qur’an. Then Allah says,
(So, give a respite to the disbelievers;) meaning, wait for them and do not be in haste concerning them.
(deal gently with them for a while.) meaning, a little while. This means that you will see what befalls them of torment, punishment and destruction. This is as Allah says,
(We let them enjoy for a little while, then in the end We shall oblige them to (enter) a great torment.) (31:24) This is the end of the Tafsir Surat At-Tariq, and unto Allah is all praise and thanks.
