Sura 33
Aya 29
وَإِن كُنتُنَّ تُرِدنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ وَالدّارَ الآخِرَةَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ أَعَدَّ لِلمُحسِناتِ مِنكُنَّ أَجرًا عَظيمًا

Muhammad Asad

but if you desire God and His Apostle, and [thus the good of] the life in the hereafter, then [know that], verily, for the doers of good among you God has readied a mighty reward!"1
  • When, immediately after their revelation, the Prophet recited the above two verses to his wives, all of them ernphatically rejected all thought of separation and declared that they had chosen "God and His Apostle and the [good of the] hereafter" (recorded in several compilations of ahadith, among them Bukhari and Muslim). Some of the earliest Islamic scholars (e.g., Qatadah and Al-Hasan, as quoted by Tabari) held that the subsequent revelation of verse 52 of this surah constituted God's reward, as it were, for this attitude.
