Ayah

قَالَ ٱلۡمَلَأُ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسۡتَكۡبَرُواْ مِن قَوۡمِهِۦ لَنُخۡرِجَنَّكَ يَٰشُعَيۡبُ وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَعَكَ مِن قَرۡيَتِنَآ أَوۡ لَتَعُودُنَّ فِى مِلَّتِنَا ۚ قَالَ أَوَلَوۡ كُنَّا كَٰرِهِينَ

Translation

The leaders, the arrogant party among his people, said: "O Shu'aib! we shall certainly drive thee out of our city - (thee) and those who believe with thee; or else ye (thou and they) shall have to return to our ways and religion." He said: "What! even though we do detest (them)?<br/>

Tafsir

Said the council of those of his people who were disdainful, of believing: 'Surely we will expel you, O Shu'ayb, and those who believe with you, from our city, unless you return to our creed', our religion (the plural person predominates over the singular in their address [to Shu'ayb] because Shu'ayb was never part of their religious community; and so in the same [plural] way he responded:) He said, 'What, should we return to it, even though we are averse, to it? (the interrogative is meant as a disavowal).
