* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs


{ وَإِن كَادُواْ لَيَفْتِنُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ لِتَفْتَرِيَ عَلَيْنَا غَيْرَهُ وَإِذاً لاَّتَّخَذُوكَ خَلِيلاً }

(And they indeed strove hard) they almost succeeded (to beguile thee (Muhammad) away) to drive you away and make you slip (from that wherewith We have inspired thee) regarding the breaking of their idols, (that thou shouldst invent) that you should say (other than it against Us) other than what We commanded you to do: breaking their idols; (and then would they have accepted thee as a friend) because of following them. This verse was revealed about Thaqif.
