* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ أَسْبَابَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ فَأَطَّلِعَ إِلَىٰ إِلَـٰهِ مُوسَىٰ وَإِنِّي لأَظُنُّهُ كَاذِباً وَكَـذَلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِفِرْعَوْنَ سُوۤءُ عَمَلِهِ وَصُدَّ عَنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ وَمَا كَـيْدُ فِرْعَوْنَ إِلاَّ فِي تَبَابٍ }

(The roads of the heavens) the gates of heaven, (and may look upon) and may see (the God of Moses) whom he claims is in heaven and has sent him to me, (though verily I think him a liar) there is no God in heaven. But he got too busy with Moses and the tower was not built. (Thus was the evil that he did made fair-seeming unto Pharaoh, and he was debarred from the (right) way) and he was prevented from the Truth and guidance. (The plot of Pharaoh ended but in ruin) in disarray.
