* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ ثُمَّ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لِلَّذِينَ هَاجَرُواْ مِن بَعْدِ مَا فُتِنُواْ ثُمَّ جَاهَدُواْ وَصَبَرُواْ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِن بَعْدِهَا لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ }

Then indeed your Lord: what [great] divergence there is between these veiled ones over whom indeed your Lord stands in wrath and subjugation and those over whom God stands indeed with satisfaction and mercy, being those who have emigrated from the abodes of the soul by abandoning familiars and objects of lust, after they were tempted, and tested by virtue of [their being a] human creation, and then struggled, for the sake of God by means of acts of spiritual discipline and wayfaring along His path by rising through the stations and disengaging from configurations and attachments, and were patient, in withstanding what the soul loves and loathes by remaining firm along the [spiritual] journey - indeed your Lord, after these states, is Forgiving, of them by hiding [for them] the coverings of the ego-centric attributes, Merciful, by effusing perfections and substituting their attributes with the divine attributes.
