Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
When they could not bring a Scripture, Allah said: (And if they answer thee not) if the wrong-doers do not produce that which you have asked them, (then know that what they follow is their lusts) through disbelief, idolatry and idol worship. (And who goeth farther astray) from the Truth and guidance (than he who followeth his lust) through disbelief, idolatry, and idol worship (without guidance from Allah) without proof or exposition from Allah. (Lo! Allah guideth not) to His religion (wrong-doing folk) the idolaters: Abu Jahl and his host.
