Tafsir of Verse(s): [8]
وَأَمَّا مَنْ بَخِلَ وَاسْتَغْنَى 8
{ And as for one who is miserly and deems himself beyond need, 8 Cf. 96:6-7. Beyond need literally means “self-sufficient,” but beyond need better conveys the negative connotation of viewing oneself as “self-sufficient” vis-à-vis God. Being miserly toward those below one’s station and having the illusion of selfsufficiency in relation to what is above is an inversion of the proper balance between Heaven and earth or God and human beings, in which people must be obedient to God and generous toward others.
