* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْهِمْ فِعْلَ ٱلْخَيْرَاتِ وَإِقَامَ ٱلصَّلاَة وَإِيتَآءَ ٱلزَّكَـاةِ وَكَانُواْ لَنَا عَابِدِينَ }

(And We made them chiefs) leaders of goodness (who guide by Our command) who call people by Our command, (and We inspired in them the doing of good deeds) and it is said that these good deeds relate to inviting people to profess Allah's divine Oneness (and the right establishment of worship) the fulfilment of the prayers (and the giving of alms and they were worshippers of Us (alone)) and they were obedient to Us.
