Alif-Lam-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.]


These are Verses of the Wise Book (the Quran).480b

As guidance and mercy for the doers of good


Who establish prayer and give zakah, and they, of the Hereafter, are certain [in faith].


Such are on guidance from their Lord, and such are the successful.

Chapter 31 Luqmān : Verses 1-5  

Explanatory Notes:

Successful ones

Allah has made the Qur’an a guidance and healing and a mercy for the Muhsinin, who are those who do good deeds in accordance with the Shari`ah. They establish the obligatory prayers in the proper manner and at the correct times, and follow that with regular, optional and supererogatory prayers; they pay the Zakah to those who deserve it; they uphold the ties of kinship with their relatives; they have certain faith that there will be rewards and punishments in the Hereafter, and they seek the reward with Allah; they do not show off or seek a reward or thanks from other people. Whoever does this is one of those of whom Allah says:

(Such are on guidance from their Lord,) meaning, they follow His guidance with clear understanding

(and such are the successful.) in this world and in the Hereafter.
