***

17. (They are) those who are patient ones, those who are true (in Faith, words, and deeds), and obedient with sincere devotion in worship to Allah. Those who spend [in the Way of Allah] and those who pray and beg Allah’s Pardon in the last hours of the night.

Tafseer Ibn Katheer Volume 2, Page 128

Allah describes the Muttaqin, His pious servants, whom He promised tremendous rewards,

﴿الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ إِنَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا﴾

“Those who say: “Our Lord! We have indeed believed” in You, Your Book and Your Messenger

﴿فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا﴾

“so forgive us our sins”

Because of our faith in You and in what You legislated for us. Therefore, forgive us our errors and shortcomings, with Your bounty and mercy,

﴿وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ﴾

“and save us from the punishment of the Fire”.

Allah then said,

﴿الصَّـبِرِينَ﴾

“Those who are patient”

While performing acts of obedience and abandoning the prohibitions.

﴿وَالصَّـدِقِينَ﴾

“Those who are true”

Concerning their proclamation of faith, by performing the difficult deeds.

﴿وَالْقَـنِتِينَ﴾

“and obedient”

Meaning, they submit and obey Allah,

﴿وَالْمُنَـفِقِينَ﴾

“those who spend”

from their wealth on all the acts of obedience they were commanded, being kind to kith and kin, helping the needy, and comforting the destitute.

﴿وَالْمُسْتَغْفِرِينَ بِالاٌّسْحَارِ﴾

“and those who pray and beg Allah’s pardon in the last hours of the night”

And this testifies to the virtue of seeking Allah’s forgiveness in the latter part of the night.
