* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أَإِفْكاً آلِهَةً دُونَ ٱللَّهِ تُرِيدُونَ }

Is it a calumny a-ifkan as regards the two hamzas the same applies as mentioned before — gods other than God — that you desire? ifkan is an object denoting reason; ālihatan is the direct object of turīdūna ‘you desire’; ifk denotes the worst kind of lie. In other words do you worship any other than God?
