* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَلاَ يَحْسَبَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ أَنَّمَا نُمْلِي لَهُمْ خَيْرٌ لأَنْفُسِهِمْ إِنَّمَا نُمْلِي لَهُمْ لِيَزْدَادُوۤاْ إِثْمَاً وَلَهْمُ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ }

Allah then mentioned how He gives them respite despite their indulgence in disbelief, saying: (And let not those who disbelieve) the Jews (imagine that the rein We give them) that the respite, progeny and wealth We give them (bodeth good unto their souls. We only give them rein) wealth and progeny (that they may grow in sinfulness) sinfulness in this world, later to be thrown into the dungeons of hell in the Hereafter. (And theirs will be a shameful doom) by means of which they shall be shamed day after day and hour after hour; it is also said that this means: a severe doom; and it is also said that from (Let not their conduct grieve you) to (And theirs will be a shameful doom) was revealed about the idolaters of Mecca on the Day of Uhud.
