* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَإِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَايَٰتُنَا بَيِّنَاتٍ مَّا كَانَ حُجَّتَهُمْ إِلاَّ أَن قَالُواْ ٱئْتُواْ بِآبَآئِنَآ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ }

(And when Our clear revelations) explaining the commands and prohibitions (are recited unto them) to Abu Jahl and his host (their only argument) and excuse to Muhammad (pbuh) (is that they say: Bring (back) our fathers then) do bring, O Muhammad, our fathers back to life so that we may ask them whether what you say is true or false, (if ye are truthful) that we will be resurrected again after we die.
