Tafseer of Surah As-Saffat (Those Ranged in Ranks) Ayat 171. Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to our Servants sent (by Allah), Ayat 172. That they would certainly be assisted, Ayat 173. And that Allah’s forces, – they surely must conquer. The victory will be the victory of Allah’s Truth by the forces of Allah, but every soldier in the army of Truth, who has done his duty, will be entitled to claim a share in the victory. Ayat 174. So turn thou away from them for a little while, Addressed in the first instance to the Prophet, but good for all time. He was not to be discouraged by his initial failures. Soon victory came to him from Allah. So is it always in the struggles of truth and righteousness. The righteous can afford to ignore opposition, confident in the strength which comes from the Grace of Allah. Ayat 175. And watch them (how they fare), and they soon shall see (how thou farest)! Watch and wait, for the Right must come to its own.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Jarir bin Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “He who is deprived of forbearance and gentleness is, in fact, deprived of all good.”

[Muslim Book 32, Chapter 21, Hadith # 6272]

This Hadith brings out that Allah enjoins softness and dislikes stiffness in human relations. Allah assures us of reward for gentle behavior in society, not for unkindness or anything like that. However, inflexibility is preferred to flexibility when there arises a question of religious matters and the limits set by Allah.
