أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ ٱلنَّاسَ عَلَىٰ مَآ آتَٰهُمُ ٱللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَآ آلَ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ وَٱلْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُّلْكاً عَظِيماً
٥٤
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Or, nay, are they jealous of people, namely, of the Prophet (s), for the bounty that God has bestowed upon them, in the way of prophethood and abundance of women? In other words, they wish that he be deprived of such things, saying, ‘If he were truly a prophet, he would not be concerned with women’. For We gave the House of Abraham, his forefather, the likes of Moses, David and Solomon, the Book and wisdom, and prophethood, and We gave them a mighty kingdom: David had ninety–nine women, and Solomon had a thousand, free women and slavegirls.
