* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs


{ وَٱذْكُرُوۤاْ إِذْ جَعَلَكُمْ خُلَفَآءَ مِن بَعْدِ عَادٍ وَبَوَّأَكُمْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ تَتَّخِذُونَ مِن سُهُولِهَا قُصُوراً وَتَنْحِتُونَ ٱلْجِبَالَ بُيُوتاً فَٱذْكُرُوۤاْ آلآءَ ٱللَّهِ وَلاَ تَعْثَوْا فِي ٱلأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ }

(And remember how He made you vicegerents after 'Aad) after the destruction of the people of 'Aad (and gave you station) He made you dwell (in the earth. Ye choose castles) for the summer (in the plains) using their mud (and hew the mountains into dwellings) for the winter. (So remember (all) the bounties of Allah) and believe in Him (and do not evil, making mischief in the earth) do not commit transgressions on the earth and call to other than Allah.
