Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Allah receiveth (men's) souls) Allah takes to Himself the souls of people (at the time of their death) their sleep, (and that (soul) which dieth not (yet) in its sleep. He keepeth that (soul) for which He hath ordained death and dismisseth the rest till an appointed term. Lo herein) in keeping and releasing souls (verily are portents) signs and admonitions (for people who take thought) for people who reflect on this.
