* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ قُل لَّوْ أَنْتُمْ تَمْلِكُونَ خَزَآئِنَ رَحْمَةِ رَبِّي إِذاً لأمْسَكْتُمْ خَشْيَةَ ٱلإِنْفَاقِ وَكَانَ ٱلإنْسَانُ قَتُوراً }

(Say) O Muhammad, to the people of Mecca: (If you possessed the treasures of the mercy of my Lord) if you possessed the keys to the stores of the provision of my Lord, (ye would surely hold them back for fear of spending) for fear of becoming poor, (for man) i.e. the disbelieving man (was ever grudging) parsimonious, stingy and tight-fisted.
