* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs


{ أَتَدْعُونَ بَعْلاً وَتَذَرُونَ أَحْسَنَ ٱلْخَالِقِينَ }

(Will ye cry unto Baal) will you worship other deities beside Allah; it is also said that this means: will you worship a bull instead of worshipping Allah; it is also said that his people had an idol called Baal which was 30 cubits tall and had four faces (and forsake the best of Creators) and forsake the worship of the greatest of Creators, such that you do not worship him at all,
