وَلاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ بَعْدَ إِصْلاَحِهَا وَٱدْعُوهُ خَوْفاً وَطَمَعاً إِنَّ رَحْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ مِّنَ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And work not corruption in the land, through idolatry and acts of disobedience, after it has been set right, as a result of the sending forth of messengers [to it], and call upon Him in fear, of His punishment, and in hope, of His mercy — surely the mercy of God is near to the virtuous, the obedient (qarīb, ‘near’, as the predicate of [the feminine noun] rahma, ‘mercy’, is in the masculine because it [rahma] is annexed to Allāh, ‘God’).
