* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ ذٰلِكَ أَن لَّمْ يَكُنْ رَّبُّكَ مُهْلِكَ ٱلْقُرَىٰ بِظُلْمٍ وَأَهْلُهَا غَٰفِلُونَ }

(This) i.e. sending messengers (is because your Lord destroyeth not the townships) the people of the townships (arbitrarily) because of their idolatry or transgression; it is also said that this means: out of injustice (while their people are unconscious) of the commands and prohibitions and the conveyance of the messengers.
