Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(If good) conquest and the spoils of war as on the Day of Badr (befalleth thee (O Muhammad) it afflicteth them) i.e. the hypocrites, (and if calamity) killings and defeat (befalleth thee) such as during the Battle of Uhud, (they say) the hypocrites, 'Abdullah Ibn Ubayy and his host, say: (We took precaution) by staying at home before the calamity took place, (and they turn away) from jihad (well pleased) with that which has befallen the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions on the Day of Uhud.
