A reward without measure | The good-doers' troop


Be steadfast and patient in doing good/being virtuous, if you want a reward without measure/reckoning. This I learned from Verse 10 of Surah Az Zumar (The Troops).

You know, every year as an employee we get measured up and our annual bonus depends on our efforts/contributions that are being carefully assessed before the employer determines the final performance score. But here in this verse, we might get a reward/compensation in full without having to go through any reckoning, if we were to be patient and steadfast, how cool is that?! 

Let's join in the good-doers' troop.

Surely, you can do better than her!

"Say: O my servants who believed! Be Godfearing of your Lord. For those who did good in the present, there is benevolence, and the earth of God is one who is extensive. Only ones who remain steadfast will have their compensation without reckoning."
Translation by Laleh Bakhtiar from

Say: 'O servants of Mine who believe. 
Fear your Lord. For those who are virtuous in this world,
there will be good, and God's earth is vast.
Truly the steadfast will be paid their full reward in full
without any reckoning.'
Translation by Royal Al Bayt Institute from
