Al Bayyinah 98: 6-8

Verse 6-7

6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the Religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide In the Fire of Hell. they are the worst of creatures.

7. Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allâh, and In his Messenger Muhammad (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam)) including All obligations ordered by Islâm] and do righteous good deeds, they are the best of creatures.

Allah reminds us again that the one who disbelieve in the Quran and also Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasalam are DISBELIEVERS. This include

-Those from ahl kitab

– Al mushrikin

They still disbelief even though the proof is brought to them. Here Allah clearly states that their place is in hell

 شر البرية Allah describe them as the WORSE of Creatures

They are worse than even the animals, for the animals do not possess reason and power, but these people reject the truth in spite of having reason and authority.

In contrast to this, is ayah 7

Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allâh, and In his Messenger Muhammad (Sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe Wa Sallam)) including All obligations ordered by Islâm] and do righteous good deeds, they are the best of creatures.

Allah says those who believe in Allah and Prophet Muhammad sallalalhu alaihi wasalam and also do righteous deed are the best of creatures.

Some scholars have used this ayah as a proof that the believers have a status among the creatures that are better than the angels. Allah knows best.

Verse 8

Ultimate gift

8. their reward with their Lord is ‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, they will abide therein forever, Allâh well-pleased with them, and they with Him. that is for Him who fears his Lord.

The Reward is with Their Lord

جزاء – reward

 

Allah says the reward is with Him. Imagine the One who created this whole universe promising you reward that He Himself is preserving for you.

The reward was attributed to Allaah for two reasons:
i.  To show its greatness. When you talk about who it is from, who is incredibily Generous and the one who Create, you can only imagine how great the reward that He is preserving will be.
ii. To show that this reward is being preserved to the utmost degree, because none can preserve and protect better than Allaah.

Also, the reward was attributed to Allaah’s Rububiyyah to indicate how perfectly Allaah takes care of and nurtures the one who does good deeds. (In reference to His special rububiyyah). Thus special great reward that allah is saving it for them.

Allâh well-pleased with them, and they with Him

The condition that Allah will be pleased with them is more illustrious than any everlasting delights that they will be given.

Allah will be pleased with them. The master is happy with the slave and likewise. And this is among the greatest pleasures in yaumul akhirah.

Let’s have a look at this hadith

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu): 

Allah’s Apostle (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, 

“Allah will say: to the people of Paradise, ‘O the people of Paradise!’ 

They will say: ‘Labbaik, O our Lord, and Sa’daik!’ 

Allah will say: ‘Are you pleased?” 

They will say: ‘Why should we not be pleased since You have given us what You have not given to anyone of Your creation?’ 

Allah will say: ‘I will give you something better than that.’ 

They will reply: ‘O our Lord! And what is better than that?’ 

Allah will say: ‘I will bestow My pleasure and contentment upon you so that I will never be angry with you after forever.’ “ 

[Sahih Bukhari – Book 76 – Hadith 557]

What a beautiful feeling it will be. May we be among those whom Allah will be pleased with in yaumul akhirah.

 Our Attitude towards Allah’s Promises of Rewards

We need to have Ihtisaab of Allah’s promised of His rewards. Ihtisaab means to sincerely belief and truly expecting the rewards from Allah. Do a good deed and think of the reward that’ll come with it. You believe in the reward and you will continuously motivate yourself to do more good deeds knowing fully well that Allah will preserve the reward for you.

Having eemaan and ihtisaab with the help of Allah, will keep you strong in facing the constant tests that comes along the way. Remember Allah never break His promises!

That is for Him who fears his Lord.

All the reward will be attained by those who fear Allah the way He should 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.
