* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ أَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ ٱتَّخَذَ إِلَـٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ أَفَأَنتَ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ وَكِيلاً }

(Hast thou) O Muhammad (seen him who chooseth for his god his own lust) who worshipped his god, i.e. al-Nadr and his host, out of the whim of his ego? (Wouldst thou) O Muhammad (then be guardian over him) a protector against going out for such corruption? But this was abrogated by the verse of jihad; it is also said that this means: would you be their protector from chastisement?
