* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُمْ شُرَكَآءَكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ أَرُونِي مَاذَا خَلَقُواْ مِنَ ٱلأَرْضِ أَمْ لَهُمْ شِرْكٌ فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ أَمْ آتَيْنَاهُمْ كِتَاباً فَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِّنْهُ بَلْ إِن يَعِدُ ٱلظَّالِمُونَ بَعْضُهُم بَعْضاً إِلاَّ غُرُوراً }

(Say) O Muhammad, to the people of Mecca: (Have ye seen your partner-gods) your deities (to whom ye pray) whom you worship (beside Allah? Show me what they created of the earth! Or have they any portion) with Allah (in the heavens) in the creation of the heavens? (Or have We given them) i.e. the disbelievers of Mecca (a Scripture so that they act on clear proof therefrom) that they will not be punished? (Nay, the evil-doers promise) what the idolaters say in the life of this world to (one another) i.e. the leaders to those who followed them (only to deceive) only vanity in the Hereafter.
