* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَمَآ أُمِرُوۤاْ إِلاَّ لِيَعْبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ ٱلدِّينَ حُنَفَآءَ وَيُقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّلاَةَ وَيُؤْتُواْ ٱلزَّكَاةَ وَذَلِكَ دِينُ ٱلقَيِّمَةِ }

And they were only commanded in their Scripture the Torah and the Gospel to worship God illā li-ya‘budū means illā an ya‘budū an having been omitted and the lām added devoting religion purely to Him free of any idolatry as hanīfs upright in following the religion of Abraham and the religion of Muhammad (s) when he would come — so how is it that they disbelieved in him? and to establish prayer and pay the alms. That is the upright religion the upright creed.
