Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Allah is He who shaped you out of weakness) from a weak sperm, (then appointed after weakness strength) a strong, young man, (then, after strength, appointed weakness) old age (and grey hair) after enjoying youth. (He createth what He will) He transforms His created beings as He wills from one state to another. (He is the Knower) of His creation, (the Mighty) He is able to transform them.
