Quran 3 Verse 170 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Imran ayat 170, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(3:170) rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them out of His bounty,[121] jubilant that neither fear nor grief shall come upon the believers left behind in the world who have not yet joined them.


121. There is a Tradition from the Prophet that he who leaves the world after having lived righteously is greeted with a life so felicitous that he never wishes to return to the world. The only exception to this are martyrs who wish to be sent back to the world so that they may once again attain martyrdom and thereby enjoy that unique joy, bliss and ecstasy which one experiences at the time of laying down one’s life for God. (Ahmad b. Hanbal, Musnad, vol. Ill, 103, 126, 153, 173, 251, 276, 278, 284, 289; Bukhari, ‘Tafsir al-Qur’an’, 6 and 21: Muslim, ‘Al-Imarah’, 108, 109. 121 – Ed.)
