* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ }

When they said ‘We only worship idols out of our love for God that they might bring us close to Him’ the following was revealed Say O Muhammad (s) ‘If you love God follow me and God will love you meaning that He will reward you and forgive you your sins; God is Forgiving as regards the sins committed previously by one who now follows me; Merciful to him.
