* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَقَدْ جِئْتُمُونَا فُرَٰدَىٰ كَمَا خَلَقْنَٰكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَتَرَكْتُمْ مَّا خَوَّلْنَٰكُمْ وَرَاءَ ظُهُورِكُمْ وَمَا نَرَىٰ مَعَكُمْ شُفَعَآءَكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ زَعَمْتُمْ أَنَّهُمْ فِيكُمْ شُرَكَآءُ لَقَد تَّقَطَّعَ بَيْنَكُمْ وَضَلَّ عَنكُم مَّا كُنتُمْ تَزْعُمُونَ }

And it is said to them upon their resurrection ‘And now you have come to Us singly each alone without family possessions or children as We created you the first time that is barefoot naked and with foreskins and you have left what We conferred on you of wealth behind your backs in the world without you having any choice; and — it is said to them in rebuke — We do not see with you your intercessors the idols whom you claimed to be associates of God amongst you that is in deserving your worship; it has been severed between you that is to say your bond has been dissolved a variant reading for baynukum ‘your union’ has baynakum ‘between you’ making it an adverbial qualifier that is the bond ‘between you’ has been severed’ and that intercession of theirs which you claimed in the world has failed abandoned you’.
