* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَقِيلَ لِلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوْاْ مَاذَا أَنْزَلَ رَبُّكُمْ قَالُواْ خَيْراً لِّلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُواْ فِي هٰذِهِ ٱلْدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةٌ وَلَدَارُ ٱلآخِرَةِ خَيْرٌ وَلَنِعْمَ دَارُ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ }

(And it is said unto those who ward off (evil)) disbelief, idolatry and indecencies; the reference here is to 'Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud and his fellow believers: (What hath your Lord revealed?) what does Muhammad (pbuh) say to you from your Lord? (They say Good) the profession of Allah's divine Oneness and keeping ties of kinship: (For those who do good) for those who profess monotheism (in this world there is a good (reward)) Paradise on the Day of Judgement (and the home of the Hereafter) i.e. Paradise (will be better) than this worldly life and all there is in it. (Pleasant indeed will be the home of those who ward off (evil)) disbelief, idolatry, and indecencies.
