* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَلَوْ شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ لَجَعَلَكُمْ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَلـٰكِن يُضِلُّ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَآءُ وَلَتُسْأَلُنَّ عَمَّا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ }

(Had Allah willed He could have made you (all) one nation) He could have made you followers of one religion: the religion of Islam, (but He sendeth whom He will astray) from His religion; he who is not deserving of it (and guideth whom He will) to His religion; he who is deserving of it, (and ye will indeed be asked) on the Day of Judgement (of what ye used to do) of good or evil in your states of disbelief or faith; it is also said that this means: of what you used to do in terms of honouring or breaking your pledges.
