* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ فَأَجْمِعُواْ كَيْدَكُمْ ثُمَّ ٱئْتُواْ صَفّاً وَقَدْ أَفْلَحَ ٱلْيَوْمَ مَنِ ٱسْتَعْلَىٰ }

So summon up your guile in the way of sorcery read fa’jma‘ū from the first form jama‘a meaning ‘he gathered’ or read fa-ajmi‘ū from the fourth form ajma‘a meaning ‘he resolved to do something’ and come in battle-line saffan a circumstantial qualifier meaning ‘standing in rows’. For truly he who is uppermost he who triumphs this day shall be the victor!’
