* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَلاَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِي خَزَآئِنُ ٱللَّهِ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ ٱلْغَيْبَ وَلاَ أَقُولُ إِنِّي مَلَكٌ وَلاَ أَقُولُ لِلَّذِينَ تَزْدَرِيۤ أَعْيُنُكُمْ لَن يُؤْتِيَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ خَيْراً ٱللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِيۤ أَنْفُسِهِمْ إِنِّيۤ إِذاً لَّمِنَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ }

(I say not unto you: “I have the treasures of Allah”) I have the keys to Allah's stores of provision (nor “I have knowledge of the Unseen”,) when the chastisement shall descend or that which is hidden from me (nor say I: “Lo! I am an angel!”) from heaven. (Nor say I unto those whom your eyes scorn) those whom you belittle (that Allah will not give them good) that Allah will not favour them with genuine faith. (Allah knoweth best what is their hearts) of belief. (Lo! then indeed) if drive them away (I should be of the wrong-doers) I should be of those who harm themselves.
