يَابَنِيۤ ءَادَمَ لاَ يَفْتِنَنَّكُمُ ٱلشَّيْطَانُ كَمَآ أَخْرَجَ أَبَوَيْكُمْ مِّنَ ٱلْجَنَّةِ يَنزِعُ عَنْهُمَا لِبَاسَهُمَا لِيُرِيَهُمَا سَوْءَاتِهِمَآ إِنَّهُ يَرَاكُمْ هُوَ وَقَبِيلُهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ تَرَوْنَهُمْ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا ٱلشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَآءَ لِلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ
٢٧
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

O Children of Adam! Let not Satan tempt you, lead you astray, that is, do not follow him, lest you fall into temptation, as he caused your parents to go forth from the Garden, by tempting them, stripping (yanzi‘u is a circumstantial qualifier) them of their garments to manifest to them their shameful parts. Surely he, Satan, sees you, he and his tribe, his army, from where you do not see them — because of their ethereal bodies or their being colourless. We have made the devils friends, helpers and companions, of those who do not believe.
