Translation

And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands, which he fulfilled: He said: "I will make thee an Imam to the Nations." He pleaded: "And also (Imams) from my offspring!" He answered: "But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers."

Tafsir

And, mention, when his Lord tested, tried, Abraham (Ibraaheem: also read Ibraahaam) with certain words, with certain commands and prohibitions with which He charged him: it is said that these included the rituals of the Pilgrimage, the rinsing of the mouth, snuffing up water into the nostrils [to clean them], cleaning of the teeth, trimming facial hair, combing of the hair, trimming the fingernails, shaving armpit and pubic hair, circumcision and washing one's private parts after elimination; and he fulfilled them, he performed them thoroughly; He, God, exalted, said, to him: 'I make you a leader, an exemplar in religion, for the people.' Said he, 'And of my seed?', my progeny, make leaders [from among them]; He said, 'My covenant, of leadership, shall not reach the evildoers', the disbelievers from among them: this indicates that [the covenant] will reach only those who are not evildoers.
