Ahmed Ali

And Abraham left this legacy to his sons, and to Jacob, and said: "O my sons, God has chosen this as the faith for you. Do not die but as those who have submitted (to God)."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (the same did abraham enjoin) enjoined that there is no god except allah (upon his sons) when he was dying, (and also jacob) he also enjoined his children with the same: (o my sons! lo! allah hath chosen for you the (true) religion) the religion of islam; (therefore die not save as men who have surrendered) hold fast to islam until you die as muslims, sincere to him in your worship and in your declaration of divine oneness.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī
