* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ ٱسْتِكْبَاراً فِي ٱلأَرْضِ وَمَكْرَ ٱلسَّيِّىءِ وَلاَ يَحِيقُ ٱلْمَكْرُ ٱلسَّيِّىءُ إِلاَّ بِأَهْلِهِ فَهَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلاَّ سُنَّتَ ٱلأَوَّلِينَ فَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ ٱللَّهِ تَبْدِيلاً وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ ٱللَّهِ تَحْوِيلاً }

((Shown in their) behaving arrogantly in the land) by rejecting faith in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an (and plotting evil) to kill Muhammad (pbuh); (and the evil plot) evil words and works (encloseth but the men who make it) turn only against the people who make them. (Then, can they expect) can your people, once they disbelieved in you, expect (aught save the treatment of the folk of old) can they expect anything save the punishment of the people of old when they disbelieved in their messengers? (Thou wilt not find for Allah's way of treatment) for Allah's punishment (any substitute) any alteration, (nor wilt thou find for Allah's way of treatment aught of power to change) to someone other than Him.
