* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَإِذَا جَآءَكَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِآيَاتِنَا فَقُلْ سَلَٰمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ كَتَبَ رَبُّكُمْ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ ٱلرَّحْمَةَ أَنَّهُ مَن عَمِلَ مِنكُمْ سُوۤءًا بِجَهَٰلَةٍ ثُمَّ تَابَ مِن بَعْدِهِ وَأَصْلَحَ فَأَنَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ }

And when those who believe in Our signs come to you say to them ‘Peace be upon you. Your Lord has prescribed He has decreed for Himself mercy to the effect that truly innahu ‘truly’ may also be read as annahu ‘that’ as a substitution for al-rahma ‘mercy’ whoever of you does evil in ignorance of it when he did it and repents thereafter after his evil deed repents of it and makes amends in his actions — truly He God is Forgiving Merciful’ towards him a variant reading for innahu ‘truly He’ has annahu ‘then He’ in other words forgiveness shall be for him.
