Sura 16
Aya 30
۞ وَقيلَ لِلَّذينَ اتَّقَوا ماذا أَنزَلَ رَبُّكُم ۚ قالوا خَيرًا ۗ لِلَّذينَ أَحسَنوا في هٰذِهِ الدُّنيا حَسَنَةٌ ۚ وَلَدارُ الآخِرَةِ خَيرٌ ۚ وَلَنِعمَ دارُ المُتَّقينَ

Yusuf Ali

To the righteous (when) it is said, “What is it that your Lord1 has revealed?” they say, “All that is good.” To those who do good, there is good in this world, and the Home of the Hereafter is even better2 and excellent indeed is the Home of the righteous,-
  • The contrast and parallelism is with 16:24, where the ungodly in their levity and their deliberate rejection of guidance find no profit from God’s revelation.
  • Unlike the ungodly, the good find good everywhere?in this world and in the Hereafter; because they understand and are in accord with the truths around them.
