Translation

He said: "O my people! See ye if (it be that) I have a Clear Sign from my Lord, and that He hath sent Mercy unto me from His own presence, but that the Mercy hath been obscured from your sight? shall we compel you to accept it when ye are averse to it?

Tafsir

He said, 'O my people, have you considered: - inform me - if I am [acting] upon a clear proof, a clear statement, from my Lord and He has given me mercy - prophethood - from Him, and it has been obscured, concealed, from you ('amiyat, 'obscured', a variant reading has the passive 'ummiyat), can we compel you to it, are we [able] to force you to accept it, while you are averse to it? We are not able to do that.
