Do they have control over shares of the kingdom? If so, they would not have given anyone so much as the speck on a date stone.

Malik : Do they have a share in the kingdom? If they had any share they would have not given other people equal to a speck on a date-stone.
Pickthall : Or have they even a share in the Sovereignty? Then in that case, they would not give mankind even the speck on a date stone.

Yusuf Ali 575 The word I have translated farthing is naqir, the groove in a date stone, a thing of no value whatever. Close-fistedness and envy are among the worst forms of selfishness, and appear specially incongruous in people of power, authority, or influence, from whom is expected generosity in giving and generosity in seeing other people's prosperity or happiness.
