﴿21﴾ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَاتَّبَعَتْهُمْ ذُرِّيَّتُهُم بِإِيمَانٍ ألْحَقْنَا
بِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَمَا ألَتْنَاهُم مِّنْ عَمَلِهِم مِّن شَيْءٍ كُلُّ
امْرِئٍ بِمَا كَسَبَ رَهِينٌ
21. And those who believe and whose offspring follow them in faith, to them
shall We join their offspring, and We shall not decrease the Rewards of their
in anything. Every person is a pledge for that which
he has earned.
The blessed Verse in question treats of other spiritual and material Bounties in
store for the people of Paradise saying that those who believed and whose
offspring followed them in believing in God Almighty shall join their offspring
in Paradise without decreasing any of their Rewards for their deeds. It is also
a great Bounty that believers shall be joined by their offspring in Paradise
enjoying their company without any decrease in their Rewards. It is narrated
from the Command of the Faithful, Imam ‘Alī (AS) that the Messenger of Allah
said: "believers and their offspring shall be in Paradise reciting this
Verse." It is also narrated from Imam Sādiq (AS) that the children of
believers shall be taken to their fathers as a token of respect. It is worthy
of note that it is another Divine Favor which shall be bestowed upon God Fearing
believers such that their children shall join them in Paradise since they were
the pupil of their eyes in this world and they wished to be with them as a
consequence of which such great Favor shall be bestowed upon them in Paradise.
It is noteworthy that the blessed Verse closes by saying that
 Tafsīr Majma‘ al-Bayān.
