Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Say) O Muhammad, to the people of Mecca, when they said to him: "revert to the religion of your forefathers": (I am forbidden) in the Qur'an (to worship those) idols (unto whom ye cry) whom you worship (beside Allah since there have come unto me clear proofs from my Lord, and I am commanded) in the Qur'an (to surrender) to be straight in following Islam (to the Lord of the Worlds) the Lord of all that which has a spirit and moves on the face of the earth.
