* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ إِنَّا بَلَوْنَاهُمْ كَمَا بَلَوْنَآ أَصْحَابَ ٱلْجَنَّةِ إِذْ أَقْسَمُواْ لَيَصْرِمُنَّهَا مُصْبِحِينَ }

(Lo! we have tried them) We have tried the people of Mecca with death, captivity and defeat on the Day of Badr because they refrained from asking forgiveness and We tried them with hunger and drought for a period of seven years because the Prophet, Allah bless him and give peace, prayed against them on the Day of Badr (as We tried) with hunger and the burning of the gardens (the owners of the garden) the owners of the fields: the Banu Darwan (when they vowed) when they swore by Allah (they would pluck its fruit next morning) at the break of dawn.
