يَا بَنِي آدَمَ لاَ يَفْتِنَنَّكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ كَمَا أَخْرَجَ أَبَوَيْكُم مِّنَ الْجَنَّةِ يَنزِعُ عَنْهُمَا لِبَاسَهُمَا لِيُرِيَهُمَا سَوْءَاتِهِمَا إِنَّهُ يَرَاكُمْ هُوَ وَقَبِيلُهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ تَرَوْنَهُمْ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاء لِلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ

Translate:
Translation (Tahereh Saffarzadeh): O, Children of Adam! Do not let Satan tempt you as he did with your parents and he brought them out of the Garden and tore off from them the clothing of piety to show them their shame. Surely, he and his tribe see you from where you cannot see them. We have appointed the devils as friends of those who do not believe.
Translation (M.H. Shakir): O children of Adam! let not the Shaitan cause you to fall into affliction as he expelled your parents from the garden, pulling off from them both their clothing that he might show them their evil inclinations, he surely sees you, he as well as his host, from whence you cannot see them; surely We have made the Shaitans to be the guardians of those who do not believe.

THE TRANSLATION

O, CHILDREN OF ADAM! LET NOT SATAN DECEIVE YOU, AS HE BROUGHT YOUR PARENT OUT OF THE GARDEN, STRIPPING OFF THEIR CLOTHING TO SHOW THEM THEIR SHAMEFUL PARTS! HE SEES YOU - HE AND HIS TRIBE - FROM WHERE YOU SEE THEM NOT. WE HAVE MADE SATANS THE FRIENDS OF THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE.

 

THE COMMENTARY

      Through this verse, Allah gives a warning to all the children of Adam, in order to beware of Satan and protect themselves against his cunningness and deception. This is because, Satan by his fraud and deceit, may take out and strip their clothes of piety, as he stripped out the clothes of our first father:

      O, children of Adam! Let not Satan deceive you, as he brought your parent out of the garden.''

      In other word; Satan by his fraud and deceit, by his false oaths and lies, stripped Adam of his cloak of honour, and garment of innocence. In the present life too he will try by means of rank, wealth, power, sex, and caprices, to strip us of the raiment of piety and virtue.
