- The Tafsirs - التفاسير

* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ٱتَّبَعُواْ ٱلْبَاطِلَ وَأَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ٱتَّبَعُواْ ٱلْحَقَّ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ كَذَلِكَ يَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ أَمْثَالَهُمْ }

Then Allah explained why He thwarts the works of the disbelievers, saying: (That is because those who disbelieve) in Muhammad (pbuh) and the Qur'an (follow falsehood) i.e. ascribing partners to Allah (and because those who believe) in Muhammad (pbuh) (follow the Truth from their Lord) i.e. the Qur'an. (Thus Allah coineth) thus Allah present (their similitudes) the similitudes of those who came before them: how Allah had destroyed them when they denied the messengers (for mankind) for the community of Muhammad (pbuh).
