* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ أَوَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرُواْ فِيۤ أَنفُسِهِمْ مَّا خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ إِلاَّ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَإِنَّ كَثِيراً مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِ بِلِقَآءِ رَبِّهِمْ لَكَافِرُونَ }

(Have they not) i.e. the disbelievers of Mecca (pondered upon themselves) among themselves? (Allah created not the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them) of created beings and marvels, (save with truth) save for the Truth and the establishment of commands and prohibitions and not merely for falsehood (and for a destined end) and for an appointed time in which there will be requital. (But truly many of mankind) i.e. the disbelievers of Mecca (are disbelievers in) deny (the meeting with their Lord) resurrection after death.
