24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Homes, Furnishings and Clothing are also Blessings from Allah

Allah says;

وَاللّهُ جَعَلَ لَكُم مِّن بُيُوتِكُمْ سَكَنًا وَجَعَلَ لَكُم مِّن جُلُودِ الَانْعَامِ بُيُوتًا

And Allah had made your homes a place of rest for you, and made dwellings for you out of the hides of the cattle,

Allah mentions His great blessings for His servant in that He has given them homes to dwell in and protect themselves with, in which they find all kinds of benefits. He has also given them homes from the hides of cattle, i.e., leather, which are light and easy to carry on journeys and can be erected wherever they stop, whether they are traveling or are settled.

Thus Allah says;

تَسْتَخِفُّونَهَا يَوْمَ ظَعْنِكُمْ وَيَوْمَ إِقَامَتِكُمْ

which you find so light when you travel and when you camp;

وَمِنْ أَصْوَافِهَا وَأَوْبَارِهَا وَأَشْعَارِهَا

out of their wool, fur and hair,

refers to sheep, camels and goats respectively.

أَثَاثًا

furnishings,

meaning what you take from them, i.e., wealth.

It was also said that it means articles of convenience, or clothing.

The correct view is more general in meaning than this; it means that you make carpets, clothing and other things from their wool, hair etc., which you use as wealth and for trade.

Ibn Abbas said;

`Al-Athath means articles of convenience and comfort."

This was also the view of Mujahid, Ikrimah, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Al-Hasan, Atiyah Al-`Awfi, Ata' Al-Khurasani, Ad-Dahhak and Qatadah.

وَمَتَاعًا إِلَى حِينٍ



and articles of convenience - comfort for a while.

The phrase,
إِلَى حِينٍ
(for a while) means,

until the appointed time.
Shade, Places of Refuge in the Mountains, Garments and Coats of Mail are also Blessings from Allah

Allah says
