* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَمَا هَـٰذِهِ ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلاَّ لَهْوٌ وَلَعِبٌ وَإِنَّ ٱلدَّارَ ٱلآخِرَةَ لَهِيَ ٱلْحَيَوَانُ لَوْ كَانُواْ يَعْلَمُونَ }

(This life of the world) the comfort and embellishment which is the life of the world (is but a pastime) exhilaration (and a game) and falsehood which does not last. (Lo! the home of the Hereafter) i.e. Paradise (that is Life) wherein its inhabitant never die, (if they but knew) if they but believed, but they do not know this nor believe in it.
