* تفسير Kashani Tafsir


{ وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ٱلإِسْلاَمِ دِيناً فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي ٱلآخِرَةِ مِنَ ٱلْخَاسِرِينَ }

Whoever desires a religion other than Islam: what is meant by islām here is affirmation of Oneness which is God's religion according to His statement I have surrendered my countenance to God [Q. 3:20] and is the one mentioned in the preceding verse and what He has described as subsuming all religions and what requires complete voluntary obedience, as mentioned at the end part of that verse where He says: and to Him we submit [Q. 3:84]; it shall not be accepted from him, since his religion shall not arrive at the Truth, exalted be He, because of the [intervening] place of the veil; and in the Hereafter he shall be among the losers, those who have lost by purchasing their souls and what they have been veiled with in exchange for the truth.
