* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَإِن كَادُواْ لَيَفْتِنُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ لِتفْتَرِيَ عَلَيْنَا غَيْرَهُ وَإِذاً لاَّتَّخَذُوكَ خَلِيلاً }

The following was revealed regarding the tribe of Thaqīf for they had asked him the Prophet s to declare their valley inviolable and implored him to grant them this request And indeed wa-in the particle in is softened they were about to they nearly did beguile you away from that which We revealed to you so that you might invent against Us something other than that; and then had you done that they would have taken you as a friend.
