أُوْلَـٰئِكَ عَلَىٰ هُدًى مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَأُوْلَـٰئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ
٥
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Kashani Tafsir

Those, namely, the ones enjoying the above-mentioned attributes relating to purification and adornment, are upon guidance from their Lord; those are the ones that will prosper, because of these [attributes]. Thus alladhīna yuÌminūna ('who believe') is the subject, the second alladhīna yuÌminūna is coordinated to it and ūlāÌika ('those are the ones') constitutes the predicate; but if it were construed as an adjectival qualification (ṣifa) of al-muttaqīn ('the God-fearing') [of verse 2], then what is meant is that they are the ones whose God-consciousness after the guidance [given to them] is perfect; this is [grammatically] feasible on the basis of [the feasibility] of referring to a thing by that to which it is about to allude.
