* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلاَ يَأْمُرَكُمْ أَن تَتَّخِذُواْ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةَ وَٱلنَّبِيِّيْنَ أَرْبَاباً أَيَأْمُرُكُم بِٱلْكُفْرِ بَعْدَ إِذْ أَنْتُمْ مُّسْلِمُونَ }

He would never order you read lā ya’murukum to denote a new clause meaning ‘God would not order you’; or if read lā ya’murakum it would be a supplement to yaqūla ‘he should say’ meaning ‘it belongs not that… a mortal should order you’; to take the angels and the prophets as lords in the way that the Sabaeans have taken the angels the Jews Ezra and the Christians Jesus. Would He order you to disbelieve after you have submitted? He would not do this.
