وَٱلَّذِينَ سَعَوْاْ فِيۤ آيَاتِنَا مُعَاجِزِينَ أُوْلَـٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ ٱلْجَحِيمِ
-Al-Hajj ( الحج )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

But those who strive against Our signs, namely, the Qur’ān, in order to invalidate them, seeking to incapacitate (mu‘ajjizīna) those who follow the Prophet ([this meaning of mu‘ajjizīna] being derived from their assumption that these [followers] are incapable individuals) and impeding them from [practising their] faith; or [mu‘ajjizīna means] supposing Us to be incapable against them (a variant reading [of mu‘ajjizīna] has mu‘ājizīna, meaning, ‘contending with Us’) that is to say, they suppose that they will [be able to] elude Us by denying resurrection and requital — those, they shall be the inhabitants of hell-fire.
