* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَجَعَلُواْ بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ ٱلْجِنَّةِ نَسَباً وَلَقَدْ عَلِمَتِ ٱلجِنَّةُ إِنَّهُمْ لَمُحْضَرُونَ }

(And they) the disbelievers of Mecca, and the Banu Malih specifically (imagine kinship between him and the jinn) they claimed that there is a kinship between Allah and the angels when they said that the angels are Allah's daughters; it is also said that this was revealed about the dualists who claimed that Iblis, may Allah curse him, is Allah's partner in that Allah created good while Iblis created evil, (whereas the jinn) the angels (know well that they) i.e. the disbelievers of Mecca: the Banu Malih (will be brought before (Him)) will be chastised in hell.
