أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ ٱلْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَعْلَمِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ جَاهَدُواْ مِنكُمْ وَيَعْلَمَ ٱلصَّابِرِينَ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[3:142] Or did you suppose that you should enter Paradise without God knowing, who among you have struggled and who are patient.
The wish of those who think they can arrive at a greatly esteemed place without enduring hardships cast them into the abyss of destruction. On the other hand, those who recognize the value of what it sought will have the exertion of their pains made easy for them:
Time is not generous
with its pleasures
for those who are reluctant
to throw off restraints.
Their speaker said:
When youth is on the lookout
for the lightening of meanings (al-maʿānā),
the least valuable use of time
is the pleasantry of sleep.
