23 Tafsir jalalayn

And never let them bar you (yasuddunnaka is actually yasuddnannaka, but the nn of the indicative [ending] has been omitted because of the apocopating particle [l], as has the ww of the [third person plural] subject of the verb because of its coming together with an unvocalised nn) from God's signs after they have been revealed to you, in other words, do not consult with them in such [matters], and summon, people, to your Lord, by affirming His Oneness and worshipping Him, and never be of the idolaters, by supporting them (l taknanna; the apocopating particle does not affect the [ending of the] verb here because of its invariability).

24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

وَلَا يَصُدُّنَّكَ عَنْ ايَاتِ اللَّهِ بَعْدَ إِذْ أُنزِلَتْ إِلَيْكَ

And let them not turn you away from the Ayat of Allah after they have been sent down to you.

meaning, `Do not let their opposition to you affect you or put people off from following your way; do not worry about that or pay any attention to it, for Allah will make your word supreme, will support your religion and will make the Message with which He has sent you prevail over all other religions.'

So He says;

وَادْعُ إِلَى رَبِّكَ

and invite to your Lord,

to worship your Lord Alone, with no partners or associates,

وَلَا تَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ



and be not of idolators.
