Tafseer Ibn Kathir


the criminal would desire to ransom himself from the punishment of the Day by his children, and his wife and his brother, and his Fasilah (kindred) who sheltered him, and all that are in the earth, so that it might save him.

By no means!

means, no ransom will be accepted from him even if he brought all of the people of the earth (as ransom), and the greatest wealth that he could find, even if it was enough gold to fill the entire earth. Even the child that he had who was dearer to him than the last beat of his heart in the life of this world, he would wish to use the child as a ransom for himself against the torment of Allah on the Day of Judgement when he sees the horrors. However, even this child would not be accepted from him (as a ransom).

Mujahid and As-Suddi both said,
(and his Fasilah)

"This means his tribe and his kin."

Ikrimah said,

"This means the subdivision of his tribe that he is from."

Ashhab reported from Malik that he said,

"His Fasilah is his mother."

Allah said,

إِنَّهَا لَظَى

Verily, it will be the fire of Hell,

Here He is describing the Hell- fire and the severity of its heat.
