* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ ٱصْطَفَىٰ ءَادَمَ وَنُوحاً وَآلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَآلَ عِمْرَانَ عَلَى ٱلْعَالَمِينَ }

When the Jews heard this, they said: “we follow the religion of Adam: we are Muslims”, and so Allah revealed the following: (Lo! Allah preferred Adam) with Islam (and Noah) with Islam (and the Family of Abraham) the children of Abraham with Islam (and the Family of 'Imran) Moses and Aaron with Islam (above (all His) creatures) above all the people of their times. It is also said that Amran is not the father of Moses and Aaron.
