* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ قَالُواْ يٰصَالِحُ قَدْ كُنتَ فِينَا مَرْجُوّاً قَبْلَ هَـٰذَا أَتَنْهَانَآ أَن نَّعْبُدَ مَا يَعْبُدُ آبَاؤُنَا وَإِنَّنَا لَفِي شَكٍّ مِّمَّا تَدْعُونَآ إِلَيْهِ مُرِيبٍ }

They said ‘O Sālih you had been one of promise among us that is to say we had hoped that you would become our chief before this that has issued from you. Do you forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? in the way of graven images? Truly we are in grave doubt doubt creating great uncertainty concerning that to which you are calling us’ in the way of affirming God’s Oneness.
