In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ سَنُدْخِلُهُمْ جَنَّٰتٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَبَدًا وَعْدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقًّا وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ قِيلًا (122
122. And as for those who believe and do good works We shall bring them into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. It is a Promise from Allah in Truth. And who can be more truthful than Allah in utterance?
122. Wallaziina ‘aamanuu wa ‘amilus-saalihaati sanud-khilu-hum Jannaatin- tajrii min- tahtihal- ‘anhaaru khaalidiina fiihaaa ‘abadaa. Wa’-dAllaahi haqqaa. Wa man ‘asdaqu mi-nAllaahi qiilaa.
Khaalidiina – (original habitants), this word is plural of Khaalid, which means ‘everlasting’, that native person of any abode, who does never think about migration from that place. Its Infinitive mood is khuluud, khuld is also from the same origin. That is to say; abode forever.
‘Asdaqu – (more truthful), it has been made from Sidq, which means ‘truth, purity and sincerity’. That is ‘Asdaq, who has led others during a competition of the Truth.
Qiilaa – (Saying), qiilaa and qawl have same meaning i.e. utterance, speech, promise, a vow, a word, agreement, affirmation or assertion.
There was a description in the earlier verses about those people who have humiliated themselves towards the Devil and Satan has been bringing them unto the depravity, by ensnaring in false desires and untrue promises. Painful torment of the Fire will encircle them, from which, it will be out of their power to escape. On the contrary, the obedient of Allah Almighty and His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) will be rewarded as retaliation of their obedience.
Allah Almighty commands that the people, who believe in Him and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) wholeheartedly, they subject their wishes according to the Orders of Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They think before doing, “wherever the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has not prevented from it”? They are sure that their goodness and advantage can only be in such work, which has been permitted to do by Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), and that deed has not been forbidden by Them. They don’t bring their sense in any reckoning before the Wisdom of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and fulfill their desires in the same manner, which has been determined for them by the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) in accordance with the Holy Book of Allah Almighty. Contrary to this method, they do not have any concern with any other method and the works, which have been told by the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) to please Allah Almighty, and which form has been confirmed to do such works, they do those works happily in that particular form, and they are not taken in misleading by anyone.
They take up their minds that the Devil is their enemy and know that he guides them to fulfill worldly desires without let. But they do not come in his deception and having trust in the Promises of Allah Almighty, they follow the Sayings of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). Desires of such people will appear after death in the form of
them. They will be admitted in the Gardens to abide therein forever in luxury
and ease. It is the Promise of Allah Almighty, which is entirely true and none
can be more truthful than Allah Almighty in utterance.
