Have Taqwa of Allah and speak (always) the truth.
(Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 70-71)
He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great victory. (Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 71)
The Command to the Believers to have Taqwa and speak the Truth
Here Allah commands His servants to have Taqwa of Him, worshipping Him as if they can see Him, and to speak (always) the truth
meaning, to speak in a straightforward manner, with no crookedness or distortion. He promises them that if they do that, He will reward them by making their deeds righteous, i.e., enabling them to do righteous deeds, and He will forgive them their past sins. With regard to whatever sins they may commit in the future, He will inspire them to repent from them. Then He says: And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great victory
meaning, he will be saved from the fire of Hell and will enjoy everlasting delights (in Paradise). Source: Tafsir ibn Kathir (Abridged)
