Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Allah forgive thee) O Muhammad! (Wherefore didst thou grant them leave) give leave to the hypocrites to stay behind and not go to Tabuk (ere those who told the Truth were manifest to you) until those who are genuine in their faith are manifest to you upon going forth with you (and thou didst know the liars) about their faith, when they fail to set forth with you without leave?
