* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَلَوْ آمَنَ أَهْلُ ٱلْكِتَابِ لَكَانَ خَيْراً لَّهُمْ مِّنْهُمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ ٱلْفَاسِقُونَ }

You O community of Muhammad (s) are the best community brought forth manifested to men according to God’s knowledge enjoining decency and forbidding indecency and believing in God. Had the People of the Scripture believed it their belief would have been better for them; some of them are believers such as ‘Abd Allāh b. Salām may God be pleased with him and his companions; but most of them the disbelievers are wicked.
