أَفْتَرَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ كَذِباً أَم بِهِ جِنَّةٌ بَلِ ٱلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلآخِرَةِ فِي ٱلْعَذَابِ وَٱلضَّلاَلِ ٱلْبَعِيدِ
-Saba’ ( سبأ )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Has he invented (read a’ftarā; the hamza, read with a fatha vowelling, is for the interrogative and suffices in place of the conjunctive hamza) a lie against God, in this [respect], or is there a madness in him, [does he suffer] a dementia on account of which he has imagined that? God, exalted be He, says: Nay, but those who do not believe in the Hereafter, that comprises resurrection and chastisement, will be in the chastisement, thereat, and in error that is far, from the truth, in this world.
