* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ قَالُوۤاْ أَوَلَمْ تَكُ تَأْتِيكُمْ رُسُلُكُمْ بِٱلْبَيِّنَاتِ قَالُواْ بَلَىٰ قَالُواْ فَٱدْعُواْ وَمَا دُعَاءُ ٱلْكَافِرِينَ إِلاَّ فِي ضَلاَلٍ }

(They say) i.e. the angels of hell say to the disbelievers: (Came not your messengers unto you with clear proofs) with commands and prohibitions and signs and did they not convey the message entrusted to them by Allah? (They say: Yea, verily) they conveyed the message to us, (They say) the angels of hell will say to them in mockery: (Then do ye pray, although the prayer of disbelievers) in the Fire (is in vain) it is also said that this means: although the worship of the disbelievers in the life of the world is but in error.
