* تفسير Al Qushairi Tafsir


{ قُلْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ فإِن تَوَلَّوْاْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ ٱلْكَافِرِينَ }

Say: “Obey God and the Messenger.” But if they turn their backs God loves not the disbelievers. He commanded them to obedience and then He said “But if they turn their backs” that is fall short in obedience by opposing [God's command] then God loves not the disbelievers. He did not say “the disobedient” ʿāṣūn but rather “the disbelievers” kāfirūn so the address indicates that He loves the believers even if they are disobedient.
