For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Insan ayat 22, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.


(76:22) Behold, this is your recompense and your endeavour has been appreciated.[26]

26. In the original, kana sayu kum mashkura: “yourendeavors have been accepted and recognized.” Saiiimplies the entire lifework that a person accomplished inthe world, the works and objectives to which he applied hisenergies and abilities; and its being mashkur means thatAllah has appreciated it. Shukr when expressed by theservant to God implies his gratefulness to Him for Hisblessings, and when it is expressed by God for the servant,it means that He has appreciated his services. It is indeedthe kindness of the Master that He should appreciate theendeavors of the servant when the servant has only carriedout his duties according to the Master’s will.
