Interest Deposit (3/110) Imam Ibn Kathir said: () Do they not see I cite water to the land barren (the land of Egypt only, but are some of the intended, and like many of the commentators out, are no [are] intended alone, but Eats her wanted pieces of this verse, they are in the same land of loose chunks, you need to If the water had fallen on it as rain, its buildings would have been destroyed. Viswq God to the Nile including endures from the increase of rain Abyssinia, and the red clay, Vigshy the land of Egypt, a land of marsh Sanders in need of that water, so clay also to grow planting it, exploits every year on new water rainy in the country, and clay New from other than their own, so praise the wise, the gracious, the good, the praiseworthy in the beginning! ).
