* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ فَكَيْفَ إِذَآ أَصَٰبَتْهُمْ مُّصِيبَةٌ بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ ثُمَّ جَآءُوكَ يَحْلِفُونَ بِٱللَّهِ إِنْ أَرَدْنَآ إِلاَّ إِحْسَٰناً وَتَوْفِيقاً }

How would it be what would they do when an affliction a punishment befalls them for what their own hands have sent before them of unbelief and acts of disobedience that is to say would they then be able to turn away and escape it? No! They then come to you thumma jā’ūka a supplement to yasuddūn ‘they turn away’ of the previous verse swearing by God that in turning to other than you for arbitration ‘We sought only virtue settlement and harmony’ reconciliation between the disputing parties by any approximate judgement without regard for the painful truth.
