* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسْتُضْعِفُواْ لِلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَكْبَرُواْ بَلْ مَكْرُ ٱلَّيلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ إِذْ تَأْمُرُونَنَآ أَن نَّكْفُرَ بِٱللَّهِ وَنَجْعَلَ لَهُ أَندَاداً وَأَسَرُّواْ ٱلنَّدَامَةَ لَمَّا رَأَوُاْ ٱلْعَذَابَ وَجَعَلْنَا ٱلأَغْلاَلَ فِيۤ أَعْنَاقِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ هَلْ يُجْزَوْنَ إِلاَّ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ }

(Those who were despised) those who were oppressed, who are the lowly among people (say unto those who were proud) their leaders: (Nay but (it was your) scheming night and day) it is what you said to us by day and night, (when ye commanded us to disbelieve in Allah) when you told us to disbelieve in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an (and set up rivals) equals and forms (unto Him. And they are filled with remorse) both the leaders and those who obeyed them (when they behold the doom; and We place carcans on the necks of those who disbelieved) in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an. He says: their hands were tied to their necks. (Are they requited) on the Day of Judgement (aught save what they did) and said in their state of disbelief?
