Allah the exalted said {Indeed, those who have said, “Our Lord is Allah” and then remained on a right course -the angels will descend upon them, [saying], “Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised} Fussilat verse 30

The great scholar Abdur-Rahmaan bin Naasir As-Si’dee (died year 1376) said in his explanation of the above verse:

Allah the exalted is informing about his allies and this entails refreshing them and urging others to imitate them so he said {Indeed, those who have said, “Our Lord is Allah” and then remained on a right course} meaning: those who acknowledged, uttered, were content with the lordship of Allah the exalted and have submitted to his decree then remained upon the right path-upon knowledge and action-will have the glad tidings in this world and the hereafter. {the angels will descend upon them} the noble angels will repeatedly descend upon them giving them glad tidings at time of death {[saying], “Do not fear”} what is coming in future regarding your affair {“ and do not grieve”} for what has passed, so the angels negated what is hated for them from past and future. {But receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised} verily it became an affirmed must for you and the promise of Allah will come true.

{ 30 – 32 } { إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلائِكَةُ أَلا تَخَافُوا وَلا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنْتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ * نَحْنُ أَوْلِيَاؤُكُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَفِي الآخِرَةِ وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَشْتَهِي أَنْفُسُكُمْ وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَدَّعُونَ * نُزُلا مِنْ غَفُورٍ رَحِيمٍ } .
يخبر تعالى عن أوليائه، وفي ضمن ذلك، تنشيطهم، والحث على الاقتداء بهم، فقال: { إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا } أي: اعترفوا ونطقوا ورضوا بربوبية الله تعالى، واستسلموا لأمره، ثم استقاموا على الصراط المستقيم، علمًا وعملا فلهم البشرى في الحياة الدنيا وفي الآخرة.
{ تَتَنزلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلائِكَةُ } الكرام، أي: يتكرر نزولهم عليهم، مبشرين لهم عند الاحتضار. { أَلا تَخَافُوا } على ما يستقبل من أمركم، { وَلا تَحْزَنُوا } على ما مضى، فنفوا عنهم المكروه الماضي والمستقبل، { وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنْتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ } فإنها قد وجبت لكم وثبتت، وكان وعد الله مفعولا
