Quran 12 Verse 57 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Yusuf ayat 57, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(12:57) Surely the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and act in a God-fearing way.[49]


49. This is a warning against a misunderstanding that one might have had from the preceding verse that kingdom and power were the real ultimate rewards for virtue and righteousness, for the best reward that a believer should desire and strive for will be the one that Allah will bestow upon believers in the Hereafter.
