* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ أَمْ حَسِبَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱجْتَرَحُواْ ٱلسَّيِّئَاتِ أَن نَّجْعَلَهُمْ كَٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّالِحَاتِ سَوَآءً مَّحْيَاهُمْ وَمَمَاتُهُمْ سَآءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ }

(Or do those who commit ill deeds) or do those who ascribes partners to Allah, i.e. 'Utbah and Shaybah and al-Walid Ibn 'Utbah who fought duals against 'Ali, Hamzah and 'Ubaydah Ibn al-Harth on the Day of Badr, and who had said: “If what Muhammad (s)ays about the Hereafter is true, then we will surely be better than them in the Hereafter, as we are better than them in the life of the world”. And so Allah said: or do they (suppose that We shall make them) that We shall make the disbelievers in terms of reward in the Hereafter (as those who believe) 'Ali and his two fellow believers (and do good works) and do acts of obedience privately between themselves and their Lord, (the same life and death?) the life of the believer in his state of faith and his death in a state of faith cannot be the same as the life of the disbeliever who lives and dies in transgression and disbelief while Allah is angry with him. (Bad is their judgement) evil is that which they judge for themselves!
