Tafsir of Verse(s): [5]
فَأَمَّا مَنْ أَعْطَى وَاتَّقَى 5
Z As for one who gives and is reverent, 5-10 ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib related that the Prophet said, “There is no one among you except that his place is registered in either the Garden or the Fire!” Someone asked, “O Messenger of God, then what of works?” He said, “Perform works; everyone is eased unto that for which he was created,” and then he recited vv. 5-10 (IK). Citing the last part of this ḥadīth, al-Zamakhsharī says that the meaning is, “We will make it amiable to him and grant him success until obedience [to God] becomes the easiest and simplest of things for him, as in His saying, Whomsoever God wishes to guide, He expands his breast for submission [6:125].” 5 Gives is understood by most to mean giving in charity, but can also indicate giving God His proper due (Sh).
