Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And they say) i.e. Harth Ibn 'Amr al-Nawfali and his host: (If we were to follow the Guidance) the confession of Allah's divine Oneness (with thee) O Muhammad (we should be torn out) expelled (of our land) Mecca. (Have We not established for them) We made them dwell in (a sure sanctuary) free of turmoil, (whereunto the produce of all things is brought (in trade), a provision from Our presence?) A sustenance for them from Us, so how am I to set the disbelievers on them if they were to believe? (But most of them know not) this nor believe in it.
