* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ }

You have your religion, idolatry, and I have a religion’, Islam: this was [revealed] before he was commanded to wage war [against the idolaters] (all seven Qur’ānic readers omit the yā’ of the genitive possessive construction [in wa-liya dīni] whether with a pause or without; Ya‘qūb, however, retains it in both cases).
