Sura 34
Aya 39
قُل إِنَّ رَبّي يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ وَيَقدِرُ لَهُ ۚ وَما أَنفَقتُم مِن شَيءٍ فَهُوَ يُخلِفُهُ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الرّازِقينَ

Muhammad Asad

Say: "Behold, my Sustainer grants abundant sustenance, or gives it in scant measure, unto whomever He wills of His servants;1 and whatever it be that you spend on others, He [always] replaces it:2 for He is the best of providers."
  • I.e., God's promise to the righteous that they would attain to happiness in the life to come neither precludes nor implies their being wealthy or poor in this world.
  • I.e., either with worldly goods, or witb inner contentment, or with spiritual merit (Zamakhshari).
