Quran 4 Verse 146 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah An-Nisa ayat 146, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(4:146) except those who re-pent and mend their ways and hold fast to Allah and make their faith exclusive to Allah. Those people shall be numbered with the believers and Allah will certainly bestow on the believers a great reward.
174. To make one’s faith exclusively to God means to concentrate one’s loyalties, concerns, affections, and adorations on God, and not to allow any attachments to strike such deep roots in one’s heart that one may cease to be capable of sacrificing them for His sake.
