* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَٱلَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُواْ فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُوۤاْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ فَٱسْتَغْفَرُواْ لِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَمَن يَغْفِرُ ٱلذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ وَلَمْ يُصِرُّواْ عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلُواْ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ }

The following was then revealed about a man from the Helpers because he stared at, touched and kissed the wife of a man from Thaqif, saying: (And those who, when they do an evil thing) a transgression (or wrong themselves) by staring at [women], touching or kissing (remember Allah) fear Allah (and implore forgiveness for their sins) repent of their sins (­-who forgiveth sins save Allah only?) the sins of he who repents (-and will not knowingly) i.e. knowing that it is a transgression against Allah (repeat (the wrong) they did).
