* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَـٰذَا ٱلْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعاً مُّتَصَدِّعاً مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ ٱللَّهِ وَتِلْكَ ٱلأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ }

(If We had caused this Qur'an) which is recited unto you by Muhammad (pbuh) (to descend upon a mountain) a tremendous mountain whose summit is high in the sky and whose base is deep in the seventh earth, (thou (O Muhammad) verily hadst seen it) i.e. the mountain with all its might (humbled) surrendered because of the promises and threats contained in the Qur'an, (rent asunder) cracked and crumbled (by the fear of Allah) from the fear of Allah. (Such similitudes coin We for mankind) in the Qur'an (that haply they may reflect) upon the similitudes of the Qur'an.
