Or is it that thou dost ask them for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-

It costs the Unbelievers nothing to hear the Prophet, for
the Prophet asks for no reward, and indeed suffers for
their benefit.
Al-Mustafa is addressed in the first instance, but there is
always a universal interpretation. The righteous man
asks for no reward for his preaching or example: if he
did, the value would be too great for the world to pay
for. The Unbelievers behave as if they had the secret of
the Unseen, but they are empty triflers, for, if they only
tried to formulate spiritual laws, they would fail.
