* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ فَمَا ظَنُّكُم بِرَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ }

What then is your supposition regarding the Lord of the Worlds?’ having worshipped other than Him do you think that He will leave you without punishment? No! They were a people of astrologers. On one occasion they went out to celebrate a festival of theirs and left their food behind with their idols claiming that they were securing thereby blessings for it and that they would eat it upon their return. They had said to the lord Abraham ‘Come out with us’.
