Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Say) O Muhammad: (Allah speaketh truth) when He said Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian; it is also said this means: Say, O Muhammad, Allah has said the Truth regarding what He stated concerning that which is lawful and that which is unlawful. (So follow the religion of Abraham, the upright) i.e. the Muslim. (He was not of the idolaters) who followed their Religion.
