* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ فَرِيقاً هَدَىٰ وَفَرِيقاً حَقَّ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلضَّلاَلَةُ إِنَّهُمُ ٱتَّخَذُوا ٱلشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُم مُّهْتَدُونَ }

(A party hath He led aright) Allah honoured them with knowledge and felicity: these are the people of the right, (while error hath just hold) is prescribed (over (another) party) Allah humiliated them with denial and damnation: these are the people of the left, (for lo! they choose) He says: Allah knows that they take (the devils for protecting friends) gods (instead of Allah and deem) the misguided people think (that they are rightly guided) through Allah's religion.
