Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 9, Page 395.
Allah the Exalted said,
﴿وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ﴾
“But for him who fears the standing before his Lord” (on the Day of Resurrection)
﴿وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَى﴾
“And restrained himself from the desires” (79:40),
And does not indulge nor prefer this worldly life. He who knows that the Hereafter is better and more lasting, so he fulfills what his Lord ordered him and stays away from His prohibitions, then he will earn two gardens from his Lord on the Day of Resurrection. Al-Bukhari recorded that `Abdullah bin Qays said that the Messenger of Allah said,
«جَنَّتَانِ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ آنِيَتُهُمَا وَمَا فِيهِمَا، وَجَنَّتَانِ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ آنِيَتُهُمَا وَمَا فِيهِمَا، وَمَا بَيْنَ الْقَوْمِ وَبَيْنَ أَنْ يَنْظُرُوا إِلَى رَبِّهِمْ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَّا رِدَاءُ الْكِبْرِيَاءِ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ فِي جَنَّةِ عَدْن»
“There are two gardens made of silver — their vessels and all that they contain. And there are two gardens made of gold — their vessels and all that they contain. And nothing stands between the people in the `Adn Garden and looking at their Lord, the Exalted and Most Honored, but the covering of pride before His Face”.
The Group, with the exception of Abu Dawud, collected this via the Hadith of `Abdul-`Aziz. This Ayah is general and applies to both humans and Jinns, providing proof that those among the Jinns who believe and have Taqwa will enter Paradise, for Allah is reminding the Ath-Thaqalayn of this favor, as He says;
﴿وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ جَنَّتَانِ فَبِأَىِّ ءَالاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ ﴾
“But for him who fears the standing before his Lord, there will be two Gardens. Then which of the blessings of your Lord will you both deny”
Then He describes these two gardens, by saying,
﴿ذَوَاتَآ أَفْنَانٍ ﴾
Their trees have beautiful young branches that hold and produce every type of ripened beautiful fruit,
