* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَإِذَآ أُنزِلَتْ سُورَةٌ أَنْ آمِنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَجَاهِدُواْ مَعَ رَسُولِهِ ٱسْتَأْذَنَكَ أُوْلُواْ ٱلطَّوْلِ مِنْهُمْ وَقَالُواْ ذَرْنَا نَكُنْ مَّعَ ٱلْقَاعِدِينَ }

(And when a surah) from the Qur'an (is revealed (which saith)) as a command: (Believe in Allah) be genuine in your belief in Allah (and strive along with His messenger, the men of wealth among them) among the hypocrites: 'Abdullah Ibn Ubayy, Jadd Ibn Qays and Mu'attib Ibn Qushayr (still ask leave of you) O Muhammad (and say: Suffer us to be with those who sit (at home)) without any excuse.
