Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

“(And the Foremost are the foremost.. .. 56:10)”

COMMENTARY: Mujahid says that As-Sabiqun (the Foremost) refers to 'the Prophets'. lbn Sirin says that it refers to early Muslims who performed their prayers facing the two Qiblas, namely, Baytul-Maqdis and Baitulllah. Hasan and Qatadah say that in every Ummah there will be As-Sabiqun. Some of the commentators express the view that they are people who go first to the Mosque.

Ibn-Kathir cites all these views and concludes that they are all correct and authentic in their own right. The opinions are not in conflict with one another, because As-Sabiqun are those who must have been foremost in their invincible faith and righteous deeds in this world, and as such they would be the 'Foremost' in the Hereafter in terms of reward which will befit their faith and good deeds.

Sometimes the 'worst' amongst us are actually the best...
And the 'best' amongst us are worst than the rest....
