Ayah

قَالَ مَعَاذَ ٱللَّهِ أَن نَّأۡخُذَ إِلَّا مَن وَجَدۡنَا مَتَٰعَنَا عِندَهُۥٓ إِنَّآ إِذًا لَّظَٰلِمُونَ

Translation

He said: "Allah forbid that we take other than him with whom we found our property: indeed (if we did so), we should be acting wrongfully.<br/>

Tafsir

He said, 'God forbid (ma'aadha'Llaahi, [lit.] 'refuge is with God', is in the accusative because it is a verbal noun, the verb having been omitted and placed in a genitive annexation with its direct object, in other words, [understand it as] na'oodhu bi'Llaahi, 'we seek refuge with God') that we should take anyone save him with whom we found our property - he did not say '[save] him who stole [our property]', being careful not to lie; for then truly - if we were to take anyone other than him - we would be evildoers'.
