لَاا يَحْزُنُهُمُ الْفَزَعُ الاْاَكْبَرُ

The greatest terror will not grieve them,

It was said that;

this means death, as was narrated by Abdur-Razzaq from Yahya bin Rabi`ah from Ata.'

Or it was said that;

the greatest terror refers to the blast of the Trumpet, as Al-`Awfi said narrating from Ibn Abbas and Abu Sinan, Sa`id bin Sinan Ash-Shaybani.

This was the view favored by Ibn Jarir in his Tafsir.

وَتَتَلَقَّاهُمُ الْمَلَيِكَةُ هَذَا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ



and the angels will meet them, (with the greeting;) "This is your Day which you were promised".

meaning, the angels will greet them on the Day of Resurrection when they emerge from their graves with the words;
هَذَا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ
("This is your Day which you were promised"),

meaning, hope for the best
