(47:17) As for those who were led to the Guidance,[27] Allah increases them in their guidance and causes them to grow in God-fearing.[28]


27. That is, the same revelations about which the disbelievers and hypocrites ask: What was the Prophet (peace be upon him) saying just now? become a cause of further guidance for the rightly guided people, and from the same assembly from which these unfortunate people rise without gaining anything, the fortunate ones return with a new treasure of knowledge and insight.

28. That is, Allah grants them the grace to develop in themselves the kind of piety taqwa that they have the capability to develop.
