“These are the people who are on the right road (shown to them) by their Rabb,
and these are the people who are in all respects successful.”
(Surah Baqarah, 5)
Here, Allah Ta’ala has stated two rewards for the Muslims. One is worldly, i.e. it is in this world – “on the right road (shown to them) by their Rabb” – and the second reward is Ukhrawi, i.e. it will occur in the Aakhirat – “these are the people who are in all respects successful”. From this we learn that the prime reward for Muslims in this world is ‘hidaayat’ which is to be on the straight path. Thus to have ‘hidaayat’ is to be gifted with exceptional Rahmat and comfort.
