Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And when We cause mankind) when We enable the idolaters (to taste of mercy) blessings (after some adversity) hardship (which had afflicted them, behold! they have some plot against) they give the lie to (Our revelations) Muhammad (pbuh) and the Qur'an. (Say: Allah is more swift in plotting) Allah's punishment is more severe. Allah destroyed them on the Day of Badr. (Lo! Our messengers) who record the deeds of mankind (write down that which you plot) the lies you utter and the transgressions you commit.
