* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَإِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُنَا بَيِّنَاتٍ تَعْرِفُ فِي وُجُوهِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ٱلْمُنْكَرَ يَكَادُونَ يَسْطُونَ بِٱلَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَٰتِنَا قُلْ أَفَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذٰلِكُمُ ٱلنَّارُ وَعَدَهَا ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَبِئْسَ ٱلْمَصِيرُ }

(And when Our revelations) i.e. the Qur'an (are recited unto them) expositing to them the commands and prohibitions, (thou knowest) O Muhammad (the denial) their hatred of the Qur'an (in the faces of those who disbelieve) in the Qur'an; (they all but attack) they are about to beat up and fall on (those who recite Our revelations) the Qur'an (unto them. Say) O Muhammad, to the people of Mecca: (Shall I proclaim unto you worse than that) worse than what you told the Muslims in the life of this world? They said to them: " We have seen no adherents of any religion who are less fortunate than you ". And so Allah said: Say, O Muhammad… Allah said: what is worse is (The Fire! Allah hath promised it for the ones who disbelieve) in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an; and you are indeed disbelievers in Muhammad and the Qur'an. (A hapless journey's end) to which they will come!
