وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ ٱجْعَلْ هَـٰذَا بَلَداً آمِناً وَٱرْزُقْ أَهْلَهُ مِنَ ٱلثَّمَرَاتِ مَنْ آمَنَ مِنْهُمْ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلآخِرِ قَالَ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَأُمَتِّعُهُ قَلِيلاً ثُمَّ أَضْطَرُّهُ إِلَىٰ عَذَابِ ٱلنَّارِ وَبِئْسَ ٱلْمَصِيرُ

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[2:126] And when Abraham said, 'My Lord, make this a land secure and provide its people with fruits; such of them as believe in God and the Last Day', He said, 'And whoever disbelieves, to him I shall give enjoyment, a little, then I shall compel him to the chastisement of the Fire - how evil a journey's end!'
And when Abraham said, 'My Lord, make this a land secure: The request is answered when it has not been adulterated by the worldly concern of the servant. Abraham's request was not for his own pleasure (ḥaẓẓ) but rather for the right (ḥaqq) of his Lord, may He be exalted and glorified. When Abraham was mindful of the required etiquette in seeking provision for those who believed, they were granted that but so were those who did not believe. [On the other hand], when he spoke about leadership, saying 'And of my seed?' [2:125] without [divine] permission, [the request] was denied and it was said to him, 'My covenant shall not reach the evildoers' [2:125].
