24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

The People's admission of their gods' incapability, and Ibrahim's preaching

Allah tells us that when Ibrahim said what he said, his people,

فَرَجَعُوا إِلَى أَنفُسِهِمْ

turned to themselves,

meaning, they blamed themselves for not taking precautions and protecting their gods.

فَقَالُوا إِنَّكُمْ أَنتُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ



They said;Verily, you are the wrongdoers.

i.e., because you neglected them and did not guard them.
