Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And We bestowed upon him) upon Abraham (Isaac) as a son (and Jacob) as a grandson; (each of them) i.e. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (We guided) We honoured by bestowing upon them prophethood and Islam (surrender to Allah); (and Noah did We guide) We honoured him by bestowing upon him prophethood and Islam (aforetime) i.e. before Abraham; (and of his seed) of the seed of Noah; it is also said that this means: of the seed of Abraham ((We guided) David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron) We guided all of them by bestowing upon them prophethood and Islam. (Thus do We reward the good) in their works and speech; it is also said that this means: those who confess Allah's divine Oneness.
