Shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful torment. The Trade that saves One from the Painful Torment
(Surah As-Saff 61: 10-11)
We mentioned a Hadith from `Abdullah bin Salam in that the Companions wanted to ask the Prophet of Allahsll about the best actions with Allah the Exalted and Most Honored, so they could practice them. Allah the Exalted sent down this Surah, including this Ayah, O you who believe! Shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful torment
Allah then explained this great trade that will never fail, the trade that will earn one what he wishes and saves him from what he dislikes. Allah the Exalted said, That you believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that you strive hard and fight in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
This is better than the trade of this life and striving hard for it and amassing it. Source: Tafsir ibn Kathir (Abridged)
