Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And if Our revelations) the verses of the Qur'an (are recited unto them) unto the disbelievers of Mecca (in plain terms) expositing the lawful and the unlawful, (they say: This) i.e. Muhammad (pbuh) (is naught else than a man who would turn you away) bar you (from what your fathers used to worship) of idols; (and they say: This) what Muhammad (pbuh) say (is naught else than an invented lie. Those who disbelieve) the disbelievers of Mecca (say of the Truth) the Qur'an (when it reacheth them) when Muhammad (pbuh) brings it to them: (This is naught else than mere magic) this is nothing but a manifest lie.
