* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَتَدْعُونَ بَعْلاً وَتَذَرُونَ أَحْسَنَ ٱلْخَالِقِينَ }

Do you call on Baal — this was the name of an idol of theirs which was made of gold from which the name of their city derives with the addition of the suffix bak — that is to say do you worship him and abandon the Best of Creators and not worship Him
