Those people who did not value the commandments of God’s Last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), they lost their religion as well as relinquished from their world too within a few days. But some people ran straightway as soon as they heard the voice of God’s obedient Servant and His Last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) saying Labbayk, and they gripped up their loins for His (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) help. After that, other people followed them also, and they began to enter in the circle of Islam one by one. They got success in the world and in the Hereafter too; they deserved favors and honors of God Almighty.
After describing the circumstances of the opposite people, in this verse; conditions of those people have been explained who accepted the invitation of Islam. There were some classes into them also. Some of them were those who embraced Islam as soon as they heard, but some people were those who entered in Islam slowly and gradually.
It is commanded: Those first people; who led for entering in Islam; as soon as they heard the Voice of the Caller (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), some of which people were Emigrants of Makkah and some Inhabitants of Madinah, plus those, who entered in Islam one by one sincerely and honestly after them, Allah Almighty is well pleased with all of them and they are well pleased with Allah Almighty. That is to say; Allah Almighty liked their purity and honesty, and leaving everything they also got support of Allah Almighty. They got ready to suffer from difficulties in His obedience. For all of them; God Almighty has made the flourishing and green Gardens ready; underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. In fact it is the biggest success.
