Ayah

وَلَقَدۡ صَدَّقَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ إِبۡلِيسُ ظَنَّهُۥ فَٱتَّبَعُوهُ إِلَّا فَرِيقًا مِّنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ

Translation

And on them did Satan prove true his idea, and they followed him, all but a party that believed.<br/>

Tafsir

And verily Iblees proved true (read sadaqa or saddaqa) his opinion of them, that is, of the disbelievers among them - [the folk of] Sheba - which was that by his tempting them to go astray, they would follow him. So they followed him ([if the verb above is read] sadaqa, this would mean that 'he was right in his opinion', and [if read] saddaqa, it would mean that 'he found this [opinion of his] to be true') - [all] except a group of the believers (mina'l-mu'mineena, [the min, 'of'] is explicative [not partitive], in other words, [all except that group] who were the believers: they did not follow him).
