Surah Zumar (39) 25/04/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 39 (Zumar-Crowds)

The reward for Sabr is immeasurable

Verse 10: Say: “O my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is Allah’s earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!”

The divine law that those who do good will reap such goodness is emphasized. Living such a life of goodness requires constancy (Sabr) on such a path for success.  The Prophets demonstrated these qualities some leaving their homes fleeing into Allah’s spacious earth av test of perseverance. The reward for this Sabr (patience, consistency, perseverance) is here described as “without measure”…ie immeasurable! We often hear of 1000s and 10 000s of “rewards” but this is nothing compared to hard earned Sabr. See also the cross reference below:

Sura 25 Verse 75: Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven, because of their patient constancy (Sabr): therein shall they be met with salutations and peace
