* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَفَغَيْرَ دِينِ ٱللَّهِ يَبْغُونَ وَلَهُ أَسْلَمَ مَن فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ طَوْعاً وَكَرْهاً وَإِلَيْهِ يُرْجَعُونَ }

What! Do they the ones who turn away desire yabghūna is also read tabghūna ‘do you desire?’ other than God’s religion when to Him has submitted to Him has yielded whoever is in the heavens and the earth willingly without refusal or unwillingly by the sword and by seeing what it such refusal results in and to Him they shall be returned? yurja‘ūna may also be read turja‘ūna ‘you shall be returned’; the hamza at the beginning of the verse a-fa-ghayra ‘what…other’ denotes a disavowal.
