* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَلَوْ نَشَآءُ لَمَسَخْنَاهُمْ عَلَىٰ مَكَـانَتِهِمْ فَمَا ٱسْتَطَاعُواْ مُضِيّاً وَلاَ يَرْجِعُونَ }

(And had We willed, We verily could have fixed them in their place) We could have turned them into apes and swine in their own homes, (making them powerless to go forward) making them unable to come and go (or turn back) to their initial state.
