* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَمَا ٱلْحَيَٰوةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلاَّ لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَلَلدَّارُ ٱلآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ }

The life of this world that is preoccupation with it is nothing but a game and a diversion while obedience and what is conducive to it are of the things of the Hereafter; surely the abode of the Hereafter wa-la’l-dāru is also read wa-la-dāru’l-ākhirati namely Paradise is better for those who fear idolatry. What do they not understand? this and so believe? read a-fa-lā ya‘qilūna ‘do they not understand’ or a-fa-lā ta‘qilūna ‘do you not understand?’.
