Tafseer of Surah As-Saffat (Those Ranged in Ranks) Ayat 40. But the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah,- Ayat41. For them is a Sustenance determined, Cf. 7:50 Sustenance, metaphorical sense, correlated with the Fruits mentioned below: see next verse. Determined: Ma’lum: the reward of the Blessed will not be a chance or a fleeting thing. It will follow a firm Decree of Allah, on principles that can be known and understood. Ayat 42. Fruits (Delights); and they (shall enjoy) honor and dignity, 2 Fruits: Cf. 36:57, The spiritual Delights are figured forth from parallel experiences in our present life, and follow an ascending order: Food and Fruits; Gardens of Bliss, (with all their charm, design, greenery, birds’ songs, fountains, etc.); the Home of Happiness and Dignity, with congenial company seated on Thrones; Delicious Drinks from crystal Springs, for social pleasure; and the society of Companions of the opposite sex, with beauty and charm but none of the grossness too often incidental to such companionship in this life. Ayat 43. In Gardens of Felicity, Ayat 44. Facing each other on Thrones (of Dignity): Ayat 45. Round will be passed to them a Cup from a clear flowing fountain, Ayat 46. Crystal-white, of a taste delicious to those who drink (thereof), Ayat 47. Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom. The passing round of the social cup, as in the case of Odier pleasures, is without any of the drawbacks and evil accompaniments of the pleasures of this world, which are taken as types. In drink there is no intoxication: in fruit there is no satiety. Ayat 48. And besides them will be chaste women, restraining their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty). In the emblem used here, again, the pure type of chaste womanhood is figured. They are chaste, not bold with their glances: but their eyes are big with wonder and beauty, prefiguring grace, innocence, and a refined capacity of appreciation and admiration. Ayat 49. As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded. This is usually understood to refer to the delicate complexion of a beautiful woman, which is compared to the transparent shell of eggs in the nest, closely guarded by the mother-bird; the shell is warm and free from stain. In 55:58 the phrase used is “like rubies and coral”, referring to the red or pink of a beautiful complexion.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “Allah, the Exalted, says: ‘I have no reward other than Jannah for a believing slave of Mine who remains patient for My sake when I take away his beloved one from among the inhabitants of the world”.

[Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 76, Hadith # 432].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah As-Saffat Ayat 40. Save the chosen believers of Allah (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism) and Ayat 41. For them there will be a known provision (in Paradise). Children, wives and parents, etc., are the dearest people to everyone. It is a great sign of Faith to accept their death as the Will of Allah, to bear their loss with patience. Wailing and saying nonsense things show weakness of Faith. The reward of patience on such tragedies is Jannah while the result of impatience is displeasure of Allah
