Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Is he who founded his building) is he who builds its foundation (upon duty to Allah) upon obedience and remembrance of Allah (and His good pleasure) they built the will of their Lord's good pleasure, i.e. the mosque of Quba' (better; or he who founded his building) or he who builds its foundation, i.e. the mosque of opposition (on the brink of a crumbling, overhanging precipice) without a base (so that it toppled with him) the one who build it (into the fire of hell? Allah guideth not wrong-doing folk) Allah neither forgives the hypocrites nor saves them.
