Commentary

 

It is the attribute of the believers that they keep their trusts, abide by their covenants and pay heed to their prayers (establish worship) at their fixed times. These are such people who will succeed, and after death they will be the heirs of the Paradise; not only for some time but for always. They will abide and dwell therein. None ever will snatch this Abode from them.

 

In these verses, summary of Islam has been described and it has been promised with the followers of Islam that certainly they will be successful. Therefore, within a few days, they succeeded in this world. Nobody could think at that time that only a handful people, who were compelled by oppressors of Makkah to leave their native land, after reaching Madinah; they will become so much powerful.

 

They did nothing save it that they began to follow the Sayings of the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) wholeheartedly. Neither any training was given to them in Military Colleges and nor any new skill of fighting was taught to them. Only the Verses of Holy Qur’an were caused to hear them and they were guided to pass their lives according to these instructions.
