Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Now have ye come unto Us solitary) with nothing: no wealth and no offspring (as We did create you at the first) in the world, without wealth or offspring, (and ye have left behind you) in the worldly life (all that We bestowed upon you, and We behold not with you those your intercessors) your gods, (of whom ye claimed that they possessed a share in you) they were your intercessors. (Now is the bond) the connection and love (between you severed, and that which ye presumed) you worshipped and say that they are your intercessors, i.e. idols (hath failed you) for they are occupied with their own selves.
