Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And (He commandeth you, saying): This) Islam (is My straight path) it is well established and I am pleased with it, (so follow it. Follow not other ways) i.e. Judaism, Christianity and Zoroastrianism, (lest ye be parted from His way) from His religion: (This hath He ordained for you) He commanded for you in the Book, (that ye may ward off (evil)) that you may ward off these different ways.
