هَـذَا بَلَغٌ لِّلنَّاسِ

This (Qur'an) is a Message for mankind (and a clear proof against them),

(So) that I may therewith warn you and whomsoever it may reach. (6;19)

This Qur'an is for all mankind and the Jinns, just as Allah said in the beginning of this Surah,

الَركِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ

لِتُخْرِجَ النَّاسَ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ
Alif-Lam-Ra. (This is) a Book which We have revealed unto you in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness into light. (14;1)

Allah said next,

وَلِيُنذَرُواْ بِهِ

in order that they may be warned thereby,

or to receive and draw lessons from it,

وَلِيَعْلَمُواْ أَنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَـهٌ وَاحِدٌ

and that they may know that He is the only One God,

using its proofs and evidences that testify that there is no true deity except Allah,

وَلِيَذَّكَّرَ أُوْلُواْ الَالْبَابِ



and that men of understanding may take heed.

meaning those who have good minds.

This is the end of the Tafsir of Surah Ibrahim, and all praise is due to Allah
