* تفسير Al Qushairi Tafsir

{ رَبَّنَا وَٱبْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُواْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَٰتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ وَٱلْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلعَزِيزُ ٱلحَكِيمُ }

Our Lord! And send among them a messenger one of them who shall recite to them Your signs and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them; You are the Mighty the Wise. Because the obligations were received from messengers rather than being understood by reason alone [Abraham] asked that they not be left to themselves without a messenger or law. He requested that the messenger be one of them so that they would feel more at home with him and it would be easier for them. Its meaning rightly understood is that when He سبحانه informed [Abraham] of the state of our Prophet ﷺ [Abraham] asked for the completion of what He had promised by way of the one He commanded.
