Tafseer of Surah Al Ahzab (The Confederates) Ayat 24. That Allah may reward the men of Truth for their Truth, and punish the Hypocrites if that be His Will, or turn to them in Mercy: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Before the Throne of Allah’s Mercy there is always room for repentance and forgiveness, even after treason and crime: but the forgiveness will be according to Allah’s Will and Plan, which will judge the penitent’s sincerity and capacity for good to the nicest degree in his favor. Cf. also 33:17.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) was asked, “Which deed is the best?” He  [SAWW](PBUH) replied, “Faith in Allah and His Messenger.” He [SAWW](PBUH) was asked, “What is next?” He (PBUH) replied, “Jihad (holy fighting) in the Cause of Allah.” Then he was asked: “What is after that (in goodness)?” He  [SAWW](PBUH) replied, “Hajj Mabrur (which is accepted by Allah).”

[Al-Bukhari Book 01, Chapter 02, Hadith # 25].

Lesson: as mentioned above Hadith “Different acts have been regarded more meritorious in different Hadith. For this reason, some scholars have performed the justification that the word mun “whoever” is the keynote in such cases. That is, such and such acts come in the category of eminent acts or they have been mentioned with reference to circumstances and time or place. For instance, at certain times or at certain places or for certain persons, performing Salat in the early prescribed hours is more meritorious, or Hajj through representative or Jihad is more meritorious, etc.
