* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ عُتُلٍّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ زَنِيمٍ }

(Greedy therewithal) he eats and drinks much and has a strong body and a large belly; it is also said that this means: he is extreme in arguing in favour of falsehood and lies, (intrusive) he is stuck with the folk while he is not of them; it is also said that this means: he is well known for his disbelief, idolatry, indecency, sinfulness and evil; it is also said that this means: he is known for his meanness just as a young donkey is known to have a pendant on its ear.
