* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَلَوْلاَ فَضْلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكَ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لَهَمَّتْ طَّآئِفَةٌ مِّنْهُمْ أَن يُضِلُّوكَ وَمَا يُضِلُّونَ إِلاَّ أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَمَا يَضُرُّونَكَ مِن شَيْءٍ وَأَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَابَ وَٱلْحِكْمَةَ وَعَلَّمَكَ مَا لَمْ تَكُنْ تَعْلَمُ وَكَانَ فَضْلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكَ عَظِيماً }

(But for the grace of Allah upon thee (Muhammad)) by bestowing upon you prophethood, (and His mercy) by sending Gabriel to you, (a party of them) of the clan of Tu'mah (had resolved) wanted and was planning (to mislead thee) in issuing the right judgement, (but they will mislead only themselves) regarding the judgement (and they will hurt thee not at all) because the hurt will befall those who committed perjury. (Allah revealeth unto thee the Scripture) He has sent you Gabriel with the Qur'an (and wisdom) expositing in it the lawful and the unlawful as well judicial decision (qada'), (and teacheth thee) by means of the Qur'an, legal rulings and legal punishments (that which thou knewest not) before the revelation of the Qur'an. (The grace of Allah towards you) by bestowing upon you prophethood (hath been infinite).
