* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوكُمْ بِمَا تَقُولُونَ فَمَا تَسْتَطِيعُونَ صَرْفاً وَلاَ نَصْراً وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَاباً كَبِيراً }

(Thus they will give you the lie regarding what ye say, then ye) i.e. the disbelievers (can neither avert) avert the angels, and it is said this means: avert the idols from testifying against them or avert the chastisement from themselves (nor obtain help) backup. (And whoso among you doeth wrong) whoever among you, O Muslims, disbelieves; it is also said that this means: whosever of you, O disbelievers, remains firm in his disbelief, (We shall make him taste great torment) in the Fire.
