* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ قَدِ ٱفْتَرَيْنَا عَلَى ٱللَّهِ كَذِباً إِنْ عُدْنَا فِي مِلَّتِكُمْ بَعْدَ إِذْ نَجَّانَا ٱللَّهُ مِنْهَا وَمَا يَكُونُ لَنَآ أَن نَّعُودَ فِيهَآ إِلاَّ أَن يَشَآءَ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّنَا وَسِعَ رَبُّنَا كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عِلْماً عَلَى ٱللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْنَا رَبَّنَا ٱفْتَحْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ قَوْمِنَا بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلْفَاتِحِينَ }

We would be forging a lie against God if we were to return to your creed after God has delivered us from it. It is not right for us to return to it unless God our Lord wills that it be so and forsakes us. Our Lord embraces all things through His knowledge that is to say His knowledge embraces all things including my situation and yours. In God we have put our trust. Our Lord decide adjudicate between us and our people for You are the best of deciders’ adjudicators.
