The Recompense of the Righteous and the UnrighteousThe Recompense of the Righteous and the Unrighteous
Surah Al-Hajj 22: 49
Allah said to His Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) when the disbelievers asked him to hasten on the punishment for them: Say: "O mankind! I am (sent) to you only as a plain warner.'
meaning, `Allah has sent me to you to warn you ahead of the terrible punishment, but I have nothing to do with your reckoning. Your case rests with Allah: if He wills, He will hasten on the punishment for you; and if He wills, He will delay it for you. If He wills he will accept the repentance of those who repent to Him; and if He wills, He will send astray those who are decreed to be doomed. He is the One Who does whatsoever He wills and wants and chooses. There is none to put back His judgement and He is swift at reckoning. [13:41] I am (sent) to you only as a plain warner.
So those who believe and do righteous good deeds means, whose hearts believe and whose actions confirm their faith. Source: Tafsir ibn Kathir (Abridged)
