* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ يَعْمَلُونَ لَهُ مَا يَشَآءُ مِن مَّحَارِيبَ وَتَمَاثِيلَ وَجِفَانٍ كَٱلْجَوَابِ وَقُدُورٍ رَّاسِيَاتٍ ٱعْمَلُوۤاْ آلَ دَاوُودَ شُكْراً وَقَلِيلٌ مِّنْ عِبَادِيَ ٱلشَّكُورُ }

(They made for him what he willed: synagogues and statues) of angels, prophets and other righteous servants so that people look at them and follow their example of worshipping Allah, (basins like wells) stable basins (and boilers built into the ground) from which up to 1,000 can eat. (Give thanks, O House of David) i.e. Solomon! He says: do works of goodness in order that you give thanks for the blessings I gave you. (Few of My bondmen are thankful) to Allah.
