Quran Quote  : 

وَالۡمُرۡسَلٰتِ عُرۡفًاۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

By those consecutively (2.) Who are sent

2. These five qualities which are mentioned here are either of the winds or the complete souls which are sent to complete the body, then through the gust of wind of the gardens blow everything other than Allah. Then they spread their effect in all the limbs and besides the Almighty destroy everything. Then they engage in Zikrullah inspirationally. Some have said that all these five qualities are that of angels. There are two more statements regarding this (Khazainul Irfaan). Some have said that these qualities are of the Quranic verses (Tafseer Azizi).

فَالۡمُلۡقِيٰتِ ذِكۡرًاۙ‏ ﴿۵﴾

Then by those bringing down the rememberance (4)

4. One probability is that if all these five qualities are of the angels then its meaning would be I take an oath of the angels who are continuously sent to you. Then they move so swiftly between you and your Lord like the gust of wind and they spread their wings before you in total respect. Then they bring the verses, which help to differentiate between Truth and falsehood. Thereafter these angels present Zikr of Allah on him.

From this commentary a few benefits are derived:

2. If these angels have achieved such loftiness, that due to little service they became worthy of Divine Oath, then what about those Noble Companions who had been close to the like shadow of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم What can one say about their greatness?

Surah Name : Al-Mursalat   Surah Number : 77   Ayat Number: 5
Topic : Remember Allah

عُذۡرًا اَوۡ نُذۡرًاۙ‏ ﴿۶﴾

To end arguments or, or to warn (5.)

6. The Day of Judgement and the reward and punishment of that day of which the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم has provided full information.

 فَاِذَا النُّجُوۡمُ طُمِسَتۡۙ‏ ﴿۸﴾ 

So (it will be) when stars 7 are made to lose their light.

7. They should be swept away after extinguishing their light. Hence, this verse is not in contradiction to the following verse: "And when the stars fall off" (S82:V2).

Surah Name : Al-Mursalat   Surah Number : 77   Ayat Number: 8
Topic : When star will lose is luster

وَ اِذَا السَّمَآءُ فُرِجَتۡۙ‏ ﴿۹﴾

And when the sky is split (8).

8. There will be a crack and the sky split apart. Prior to this, there was no crack in the sky. Says Allah Almighty: "And there is no rift therein" (S50:V6). Or, the doors of heaven should open through which the angels should descend. Says Allah Almighty: "And the sky shall be opened up and it will become as doors" (S78:V19). The first explanation has greater strength.

وَاِذَا الۡجِبَالُ نُسِفَتۡۙ‏ ﴿۱۰﴾
