Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Then let them make an end of their unkemptness) and then let them complete the rites of their pilgrimage: shaving their heads, throwing pebbles, cutting their nails and other things (and pay their vows) and fulfil that which they made incumbent upon themselves (and go around) the obligated circumambulation (the ancient House) more ancient than any tyrant that has ever stepped on its soil; it is also said that this means: more ancient than the flood of Noah; it is also said that it is the first House ever built; and it is also said that whoever go round it will be delivered.
