Tafsir

You have your religion, idolatry, and I have a religion', Islam: this was [revealed] before he was commanded to wage war [against the idolaters] (all seven Qur'aanic readers omit the yaa' of the genitive possessive construction [in wa-liya deeni] whether with a pause or without; Ya'qoob, however, retains it in both cases).
