أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ يُجْزَوْنَ ٱلْغُرْفَةَ بِمَا صَبَرُوا۟ وَيُلَقَّوْنَ فِيهَا تَحِيَّةً وَسَلَٰمًا 75  خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا حَسُنَتْمُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا 76  قُلْ مَا يَعْبَؤُا۟ بِكُمْ رَبِّى لَوْلَا دُعَآؤُكُمْ فَقَدْ كَذَّبْتُمْ فَسَوْفَ يَكُونُ لِزَامًۢا 77

76.  Abiding there in for ever. Happy is it as abode and station!


77.  Say (O Muhammad, unto the disbelievers): My Lord would not concern Himself with you but for your prayer. But now ye have denied (the truth), therefore there will be judgment.

(Part One-Fourth)


Gurfatan – (high place, upper storey, balcony).


Ya’-ba-‘u – (He concerns), origin of this word is ‘ab-‘un, which means “to relate or belong to, to effect or interest, to affect”.


Lizaam – (the thing which clings), it is a Noun from the word lazuum, which means “to hold fast”. The words laazim (necessary, incumbent, intransitive) and ‘iltazaam (being necessary, expedient, taking on one’s self) etc. have come out from the same. Here it aims “unavoidable worse result”.


After describing about virtues of good people, now their reward is being discussed. It is commanded: After death, high places for abiding will be provided to them, because they bore difficulties and hardships, and acted upon the commandments of Allaah Almighty, and remained steadfast in His obedience. They will be most welcomed courteously in the Garden and the Angels (peace be upon them) will receive them with the word of peace. They will greet and salute also to one another mutually. They will dwell in the upper storey abodes forever, which is a good station.


It is commanded: Say to the Disbelievers! Allaah Almighty will not concern Himself with you if you do neither pray from Him and nor Worship Him. You have falsified Our Sayings. You will find its consequence in near future, that is to say, destruction in the world and painful torment in the Hereafter. Our Lord! Save us.
