24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

جَزَاوُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ


Their reward with their Lord,

meaning, on the Day of Judgement.

جَنَّاتُ عَدْنٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الاَْنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَدًا

is Eternal Gardens underneath which rivers flow. They will abide therein forever,

meaning, having no end, no break and no conclusion.

رَّضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ

Allah will be pleased with them, and they well-pleased with Him.

The condition of Him being pleased with them is more illustrious than all of the everlasting delights that they will be given.

وَرَضُواْ عَنْهُ
and they well-pleased with Him, Due to the comprehensive favors He has given them.

Then Allah says,

ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ خَشِيَ رَبَّهُ




That is for him who fears his Lord.

meaning, this is the reward that will be attained by those who revere Allah and fear Him as He deserves to be feared. This is the person who worships Allah as if he sees Him, and he knows that even though he does not see Him, indeed Allah sees him.

Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah said, Shall I not inform you of the best of creation?

They said, "Of course, O Messenger of Allah!"

He said,

رَجُلٌ اخِذٌ بِعِنَانِ فَرَسِهِ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ كُلَّمَا كَانَتْ هَيْعَةٌ اسْتَوَى عَلَيْهِ

A man who takes the reins of his horse in the way of Allah, and whenever there is a fearful cry from the enemy, he climbs upon it.

Shall I not inform you of the best of creation?

They said, "Of course, O Messenger of Allah!"

He said,

رَجُلٌ فِي ثُلَّةٍ مِنْ غَنَمِهِ يُقِيمُ الصَّلَةَ وَيُوْتِي الزَّكَاةَ

A man who has a flock of sheep and he establishes the prayer and gives the obligatory charity.

Shall I not inform you of the worst of creation?

They said, "Of course."

He said,

الَّذِي يُسْأَلُ بِاللهِ وَلَا يُعْطِي بِه

The person who is asked by Allah and he does not give by Him.
