Following the opening three oaths that compare night and day to the attributes of men and women in Surat Al-Layl, Allah transitions to the central theme of the surah. Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan teaches us that here Allah is saying that our efforts in this world will go in many different directions, some right and some wrong.
The order of the verbs Allah uses to describe those on the correct path sums up the moral view of the Qur’an: If you give, are conscious of Allah and accept the ultimate beauty (al-husna) through an unhesitating submission to the truth itself, Allah will surely guide you along the path to Jannah.
