Sahih International
And Allah increases those who were guided, in guidance, and the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for recourse.

Yusuf Ali
“And Allah doth advance in guidance those who seek guidance: and the things that endure, Good Deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best in respect of (their) eventual return.”

Abul Ala Maududi
(On the contrary), Allah increases in guidance those who follow the Right Way. Lasting acts of righteousness are better in the sight of your Lord as reward and conducive to a better end.

Muhsin Khan
And Allah increases in guidance those who walk aright [true believers in the Oneness of Allah who fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]. And the righteous good deeds that last, are better with your Lord, for reward and better for resort.

Pickthall
Allah increaseth in right guidance those who walk aright, and the good deeds which endure are better in thy Lord’s sight for reward, and better for resort.

Dr. Ghali
And Allah increases the ones who have been guided in guidance. And the enduring things, the deeds of righteousness, are more charitable from the Providence of your Lord in requital and more charitable for turning back.

Abdel Haleem
But God gives more guidance to those who are guided, and good deeds of lasting merit are best and most rewarding in your Lord’s sight.

Quran 19 Verse 76 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Maryam ayat 76, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(19:76) (On the contrary), Allah increases in guidance those who follow the Right Way.[46] Lasting acts of righteousness are better in the sight of your Lord as reward and conducive to a better end.


46. That is, On every critical occasion, Allah guides them to make right decisions and helps them to adopt the right way, and protects them from evil and wrong things; thus they go on making more and more progress on the right way.

Ibn-Kathir

76. And Allah increases in guidance those who walk aright. And the righteous good deeds that last are better with your Lord for reward and better for resort.


Increasing Guidance of Those Who are guided

After Allah mentions the extended time and respite that is allowed to those who are in misguidance, increasing them in misguidance, He informs of the increase in guidance of those who are rightly guided. Similarly He says,

﴿وَإِذَا مَآ أُنزِلَتْ سُورَةٌ فَمِنْهُمْ مَّن يَقُولُ أَيُّكُمْ زَادَتْهُ هَـذِهِ إِيمَـناً﴾

(And whenever there comes down a Surah, some of them say: “Which of you has had his faith increased by it”) ﴿9:124﴾ And the following Ayah also shows this. Concerning Allah’s statement,

﴿وَالْبَـقِيَاتُ الصَّـلِحَاتُ﴾

(And the righteous good deeds that last) Its explanation has already preceded in Surat Al-Kahf, along with a lengthy discussion concerning it and the related Hadiths.

﴿خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا﴾

((they) are better with your Lord for reward.) meaning the recompense and reward.

﴿وَخَيْرٌ مَّرَدّاً﴾

(and better for resort.) meaning in the final outcome, the result for its doer.
