* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوْلَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوۤاْ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَن يَقُولُواْ سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا وَأُوْلَـٰئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ }

Allah then mentioned what the sincere believers say, saying: (The saying of (all true) believers) such as 'Uthman who said to 'Ali: " rather, I will come with you to the Prophet (pbuh) and I will accept his judgement whatever it is " , and so Allah praised him for saying so, (when they appeal unto Allah) when they are called to the Book of Allah (and His messenger) and to the wont of His Messenger (to judge) for the Prophet to judge (between them) by Allah's Book (is only that they say: We hear and we obey) what we have been commanded with. (And such are the successful) such are the ones, i.e. 'Uthman Ibn 'Affan, who will escape Allah's wrath and chastisement.
