* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَمَآ أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَلاَ أَوْلاَدُكُمْ بِٱلَّتِي تُقَرِّبُكُمْ عِندَنَا زُلْفَىٰ إِلاَّ مَنْ آمَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحاً فَأُوْلَـٰئِكَ لَهُمْ جَزَآءُ ٱلضِّعْفِ بِمَا عَمِلُواْ وَهُمْ فِي ٱلْغُرُفَاتِ آمِنُونَ }

(And it is not your wealth) the abundance of your wealth, O people of Mecca, (nor your children) nor the abundance of your children (that will bring you near unto Us) that will make your rank closer to Allah, (but he who believeth) in Allah, but it is the faith of he who believes in Allah (and doeth good) between him and his Lord that bring one close to Allah. (As for such, theirs will be twofold reward for what they did) as believers, (and they will dwell secure in lofty halls) secure from death and evanescence.
