يٰعِبَادِيَ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُوۤاْ إِنَّ أَرْضِي وَاسِعَةٌ فَإِيَّايَ فَٱعْبُدُونِ
٥٦
-Al-‘Ankabût ( العنكبوت )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

O My servants who believe! My earth is indeed vast. So worship [only] Me, in whichever land worship is possible, by emigrating to it from a land in which worship is not possible — this [verse] was revealed regarding the oppressed Muslims [living] in Mecca, who were constrained to manifest [their] Islam in it.
