وَالَّذِينَ صَبَرُواْ ابْتِغَاء وَجْهِ رَبِّهِمْ

And those who remain patient, seeking their Lord's Face,

They observe patience while staying away from sins and evil deeds, doing so while dedicating themselves to the service of their Lord the Exalted and Most Honored and seeking His pleasure and generous reward,

وَأَقَامُواْ الصَّلَةَ

and perform the Salah,

preserving its limits, times, bowing, prostration and humbleness, according to the established limits and rulings of the religion,

وَأَنفَقُواْ مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ

and spend out of that which We have bestowed on them,

They spend on those whom they are obliged to spend on them, such as their spouses, relatives and the poor and needy in general,

سِرًّا وَعَلَنِيَةً

secretly and openly,

They spend during all conditions and times, whether during the night or the day, secretly and openly,

وَيَدْرَوُونَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ السَّيِّيَةَ

and repel evil with good,

they resist evil with good conduct. When the people harm them they face their harm with good patience, forbearing, forgiveness and pardon.

Allah said in another Ayah,

وَلَا تَسْتَوِى الْحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّيَةُ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِى هِىَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِى بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِىٌّ حَمِيمٌ


وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَا إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ صَبَرُواْ وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَأ إِلاَّ ذُو حَظِّ عَظِيمٍ


Repel (the evil) with one which is better, then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend. But none is granted it except those who are patient - and none is granted it except the owner of the great portion in this world. (41;34-35)

This is why Allah states here that those who have these good qualities, the blessed ones, will earn the final home,

أُوْلَيِكَ لَهُمْ عُقْبَى الدَّارِ



for such there is a good end.
