The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The majority of the scholars interpreted the statement "the unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes" in the verses "Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the Company of the Righteous. And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed" (al-Qalam, 68/50, 51) as "nazar". (Elmalılı M.Hamdi Yazır, Hak Dini Kur'an Dili, VIII, 5305; Ibn Kathir, "Tafsirul Quranil-Azim", VIII, 227).

"Further he said: "O my sons! Enter not all by one gate: enter ye by different gates. Not that I can profit you aught against Allah (with my advice): None can command except Allah: On Him do I put my trust: and let all that trust put their trust on Him." (Yusuf 12/67)

While interpreting the verse above, Elmalılı Hamdi Yazır states the following: "The reason for this advice was to prevent them from being seen all together and from being affected others’ jealousy and evil eye. (Elmalılı, ibid, IV, 2890)
