Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture) Ka'b Ibn al-Ashraf and his companions (nor the idolaters) the idolaters of Arabia: Abu Jahl and his companions (love that there should be sent down unto you) that Allah should send Gabriel unto your Prophet (any good thing) the good of prophethood, Islam and the Book (from your Lord. But Allah chooseth for His mercy) chooses for His religion, prophethood, Islam and the Book (whom He will) whoever deserves to be chosen, i.e. Muhammad (pbuh) (and Allah is of infinite mercy) His favour in giving Muhammad prophethood and Islam is great indeed.
