24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتِ وَهُوَ مُوْمِنٌ

So whoever does righteous good deeds while he is a believer,

meaning, his heart believes and his deeds are righteous.

فَلَ كُفْرَانَ لِسَعْيِهِ

his efforts will not be rejected.

This is like the Ayah;

إِنَّا لَا نُضِيعُ أَجْرَ مَنْ أَحْسَنَ عَمَلً

certainly We shall not make the reward of anyone who does his deeds in the most perfect manner to be lost. (18;30)

which means, his efforts will not be wasted; they will be appreciated and not even a speck of dust's weight of injustice will be done.

Allah says;

وَإِنَّا لَهُ كَاتِبُونَ



Verily, We record it for him.

means, all his deeds are recorded and nothing of them at all is lost
