Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(O you, who believe!) in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an, (Lo! many of the (Jewish) rabbis) the scholars of the Children of Israel (and the (Christian) monks) who reside in monasteries (devour the wealth of mankind wantonly) through bribery and unlawful earning (and debar (men) from the way of Allah) from Allah's Religion and obedience. (They who hoard up) amass (gold and silver and spend it not) the gold and silver (in the way of Allah) in obedience of Allah; it is also said that this means: who do not pay the poor-due from it, (unto them give tidings) O Muhammad (of a painful doom).
