* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَأَنذِرِ ٱلنَّاسَ يَوْمَ يَأْتِيهِمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ فَيَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوۤاْ رَبَّنَآ أَخِّرْنَآ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ نُّجِبْ دَعْوَتَكَ وَنَتَّبِعِ ٱلرُّسُلَ أَوَلَمْ تَكُونُوۤاْ أَقْسَمْتُمْ مِّن قَبْلُ مَا لَكُمْ مِّن زَوَالٍ }

(And warn mankind) warn the people of Mecca by means of the Qur'an (of a day) the Day of Badr; it is also said that this is a reference to the Day of Judgement (when the doom will come upon them, and those who did wrong) the idolaters (will say: Our Lord!) O our Lord! (Reprieve us for a little while) in the life of this world. (We will obey Your call) to monotheism (and will follow the messengers) we will obey the messengers. Allah will then say to them: (Did ye not swear before) before this, when you were in the life of the lower world (that there would be no end for you) in the life of the world and that there is no resurrection?
