'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and when the son of mary is quoted as an example) they likened him to their deities, (behold! the folk laugh out) upon hearing the words of 'abdullah al-zib'ari and his folk,

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and when the son of mary is cited as an example — after god’s [following] words were revealed: ‘truly you and what you worship besides god shall be fuel for hell’ [q. 21:98] and the idolaters said, ‘we are satisfied that our gods be together with jesus [in hell], for he too was worshipped besides god’ — behold! your people, that is, the idolaters, laugh at it, at this example — they clamour with joy at what they hear.
