هَٰأَنْتُمْ هَـٰؤُلاۤءِ جَٰدَلْتُمْ عَنْهُمْ فِي ٱلْحَيَٰوةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا فَمَن يُجَٰدِلُ ٱللَّهَ عَنْهُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ أَمْ مَّن يَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَكِيلاً
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Ah! There you are (addressing Tu‘ma’s clan) you have contested, you have disputed, on their behalf, that is to say, on behalf of Tu‘ma and his men (a variant reading has ‘anhu, ‘on his behalf’) in the life of this world; but who will contest against God on their behalf on the Day of Resurrection, if He were to punish them, or who will be a guardian for them, and take charge of their affair or defend them? In other words, no one will do such a thing.
