* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs


{ وَقُل لِّعِبَادِي يَقُولُواْ ٱلَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيْطَانَ يَنزَغُ بَيْنَهُمْ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيْطَانَ كَانَ لِلإِنْسَانِ عَدُوّاً مُّبِيناً }

(Tell My bondmen) 'Umar and his fellow believers (to speak) to say to the disbelievers (that which is kindlier) i.e. greet them and be kind to them. (Lo! the devil soweth discord among them) when you treat them harshly. (Lo! the devil is for man an open foe) his enmity is quite manifest. This injunction was before they were commanded to fight.
