وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْهِمْ فِعْلَ ٱلْخَيْرَاتِ وَإِقَامَ ٱلصَّلاَة وَإِيتَآءَ ٱلزَّكَـاةِ وَكَانُواْ لَنَا عَابِدِينَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And We made them leaders (read a-immatan pronouncing both hamzas, or substituting the second one with a yā’), whose example of good [conduct] is followed, guiding, people, by Our command, to Our religion, and We inspired in them the performance of good deeds and the maintenance of prayers and the payment of alms, that is, [We inspired] that these [good deeds] be performed, [prayers] be maintained, and [alms] be payed by them and by their followers (the [final] hā’ of iqāma has been omitted to soften [the reading]), and they used to worship Us.
