Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And of mankind is he who would sell himself) with his wealth, (seeking the pleasure of Allah) in pursuit of Allah's pleasure. This was revealed about Suhayb Ibn Sinan and his companions. He ransomed himself from the Meccans with his money; (and Allah hath compassion on (His) bondmen) those who were killed in Mecca. This was revealed about the parents of 'Ammar Ibn Yasir (Yasir and Sumayyah) and others who were killed by the Meccan idolaters.
