The Fruits of Taqwa and Sabr

قَالُوا أَإِنَّكَ لَأَنْتَ يُوسُفُ ۖ قَالَ أَنَا يُوسُفُ وَهَٰذَا أَخِي ۖ قَدْ مَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْنَا ۖ إِنَّهُ مَنْ يَتَّقِ وَيَصْبِرْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

They said: “Are you indeed Yusuf (Joseph)? “He said: I am Yusuf (Joseph), and this is my brother (Benjamin). Allah has indeed been gracious to us. Verily, he who fears Allah and is patient, then surely, Allah makes not the reward of the good-doers to be lost.”

 

They knew that the one who addressed them was Yoosuf, so they said: [ أَإِنَّكَ لَأَنْتَ يُوسُف] “Are you indeed Yusuf (Joseph)?” He (Yoosuf) said: [أَنَا يُوسُفُ وَهَٰذَا أَخِي ۖ قَدْ مَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْنَا ] ”I am Yusuf (Joseph), and this is my brother (Benjamin). Allah has indeed been gracious to us’” (by granting) us Imaan, piety and authority in the worldly life, and that is due to patience and piety.

[ۖ إِنَّهُ مَنْ يَتَّقِ وَيَصْبِرْ] ”Verily, he who fears Allah and is patient;” That is: (He/She) keeps away from what Allaah has forbidden, exercises patience in facing pain and calamities, and (exercises patience) in carrying out the commandments (of Allaah), [فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنِين] ”then surely, Allah makes not the reward of the good-doers to be lost”; because this is from Ihsaan and Allaah makes not the reward of the one who perfects his deeds to be lost.
