"...He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned... " Quran (02:286)

Root Words

  • Word "كسب" which means gaining/acquisition], is used in context of the good deeds : shows that a person achieves the reward of the good deed by just doing a little of it. Rather even by just having the intention in the heart.
  • And in context of the word "اكتسب" regarding the evil deeds came to show that the evil deeds are not written down for a person,until he actually enters into these deeds and does them.
  • Prepositions "ل" & "علي" .Simply , ل shows favor & علي shows opposition (against).

Ayah Explanation

Both rewards & punishments are really the results & consequences of the acts & deeds of every individual. One will get a reward only for the good deed one has himself done not for someone's else deeds. It must, however, be noted that if 'someone has done some good act which goes on producing good results long after his death, all those acts will also be put to his credit in his balance sheet as long as they last. In the same way, if someone has done some evil, which goes on producing evil results long after one's death, all those also will be put against one's account as long as they fast.
In short, every soul will be accountable for his own good or bad deeds.

🌹May Allah make us among those whose good deeds will erase their bad deeds!!!
🌹 May Allah give all of us Ihsan, Ikhlas and Tawfeeq, and give all of us correct understanding of Islam and the Sunnah!
🌹 May Allah give us tawfeeq to read & understand Quran with Tafseer !
🌹 May Allah make us among those who recite,understand and follow Quran & Sunnah in the best way !!!
Ameen.
