* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ أَفَمَن يَتَّقِي بِوَجْهِهِ سُوۤءَ ٱلْعَذَابِ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَامَةِ وَقِيلَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ ذُوقُواْ مَا كُنتُمْ تَكْسِبُونَ }

(Is he then, who will strike his face against the awful doom) the severe torment (upon the Day of Resurrection) the reference here is to Abu Jahl and his host; his hands will be tied to his neck with iron chains, this is why he covers his face ((as he who doeth right)? And it will be said unto the wrong-doers) the disbelievers: Abu Jahl and his host; the angels of the Fire say to them: (Taste) the doom of (what ye used to earn) of what you used to do and say of transgressions in the life of this world.
