وَاَنْزَلَ الَّذِيْنَ ظَاہَرُوْہُمْ مِّنْ اَہْلِ الْكِتٰبِ مِنْ صَيَاصِيْہِمْ وَقَذَفَ فِيْ قُلُوْبِہِمُ الرُّعْبَ فَرِيْقًا تَقْتُلُوْنَ وَتَاْسِرُوْنَ فَرِيْقًا۝۲۶ۚ

'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and he brought those of the people of the scripture) they are banu qurayzah and banu'l-nadir: ka'b ibn ashraf and huyayy ibn akhtab and their hosts (who supported them) who supported the disbelievers of mecca (down from their strongholds) from their mansions and towers, (and cast panic into their hearts) from muhammad (pbuh) and his companions, whereas before that they did not fear them and fought against them. (some you slew) he says: you kill some of them, you sentence them to death, (and you made captive some) their children and women.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and he brought down those of the people of the scripture, namely, the [banū] qurayza, who had supported them from their strongholds (sayāsī is the plural of sīsa, and is that in which one fortifies himself [against an enemy]) and he cast terror into their hearts, [so that] some, of them, you slew, and these were the combatants, and some, of them, you took captive, namely, their children.
