Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And when Our clear revelations) detailing commands and prohibitions (are recited unto them) are recited by you unto the scoffers: al-Walid Ibn al-Mughirah and his host (they who look not for the meeting with Us) those who do not fear resurrection after death while at the same time scoff (say: Bring) O Muhammad (a Lecture other than this, or change it) putting the verses of mercy in the place of the verses of chastisement and the verses of chastisement in place of the verses of mercy. (Say) to them, O Muhammad: (It is not for me) it is not permissible for me (to change it of my own accord. I only follow that which is inspired in me) I do not say or do except that which is revealed to me in the Qur'an. (Lo! If I disobey my Lord) by changing the revelation (I fear) I know (the retribution of an awful Day) a severe Day.
