* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ مَّا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ وَلاَ لآبَائِهِمْ كَبُرَتْ كَلِمَةً تَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ إِن يَقُولُونَ إِلاَّ كَذِباً }

They do not have in this in this saying any knowledge nor did their fathers before them who also used to say this. Dreadful grave is the word that comes out of their mouths kalimatan ‘word’ is for specification and it explains the unidentified feminine person of the verb kaburat ‘dreadful’; and that which is the object of censure has been omitted and that is their above-mentioned saying that God has taken a son. They speak nothing thereby but an utterance of lies.
