Asad 10 Sc., "but do not or cannot beg": see Razi's comments on a similar phrase in 51:19, quoted in my corresponding note [12].

Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 5691 See n. 5001 to li. 19. True charity consists in finding out those in real need, whether they ask or not. Most frequently those who ask are idle men who insolently wish to live upon others. But all cases of those who ask should be duly investigated, in case a little timely help may set the erring on the way. But the man with wealth or talent or opportunity has the further responsibility of searching out those in need of his assistance, in order to show that he holds all gifts in trust for the service of his fellow- creatures.
