* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَئِنْ قُتِلْتُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ أَوْ مُتُّمْ لَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرَحْمَةٌ خَيْرٌ مِّمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ }

And if wa-la-in the lām is for oaths you are slain in God’s way in holy struggle or die read muttum or mittum from singular form māta yamūtu that is if death comes to you thereat forgiveness that is from God for your sins and mercy therefor from Him for you the clause introduced by the lām of la-maghfiratun ‘forgiveness’ is the response to the oath clause of la’in and occupies the place of the verbal action as a subject the predicate of which is what follows are better than what they amass in this world read tajma‘ūn ‘you amass’ or yajma‘ūn ‘they amass’.
