* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لَن نُّؤْمِنَ بِهَـٰذَا ٱلْقُرْآنِ وَلاَ بِٱلَّذِي بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَلَوْ تَرَىٰ إِذِ ٱلظَّالِمُونَ مَوْقُوفُونَ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ يَرْجِعُ بَعْضُهُمْ إِلَىٰ بَعْضٍ ٱلْقَوْلَ يَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسْتُضْعِفُواْ لِلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَكْبَرُواْ لَوْلاَ أَنتُمْ لَكُنَّا مُؤْمِنِينَ }

(And those who disbelieve) the disbelievers of Mecca: Abu Jahl Ibn Hisham and his host (say: We believe not in this Qur'an) which Muhammad (pbuh) recite unto us (nor in that which was before it) nor do we believe in the Scriptures revealed before him: the Torah and the Gospel and all the other Scriptures; (but oh, if thou couldst see) O Muhammad, (when the wrong-doers) the idolaters: Abu Jahl and his host (are brought up before their Lord) restrained on the Day of Judgement, (how they cast the blame one to another) they argue with each other and curse one another; (how those who were despised (in the earth)) how those who were oppressed in the earth, these are the lowly among people (say unto those who were proud) too proud to accept faith: i.e. the leaders: (But for you, we should have been believers) in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an.
