اِلَّا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ فَلَہُمْ اَجْرٌ غَیۡرُ مَمْنُوۡنٍ ؕ﴿۶﴾

Except those who accepted faith and did good deeds – for them is a never ending reward.

Tafsir al-Qurtubi                                                                                                                         تفسیر القرطبی                                                    

وَرُوِيَ: إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ الْمُؤْمِنَ إِذَا مَاتَ أَمَرَ اللَّهُ مَلَكَيْهِ  أَنْ يَتَعَبَّدَا عَلَى قَبْرِهِ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ، وَيُكْتَبُ لَهُ ذَلِكَ. قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى: (فَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ)

It is narrated in the Hadeeth:  When a Muslim servant passes away, Allah Almighty appoints two angels to worship on his grave till the day of Judgment and its virtues will be written in his account, hence the statement of the Almighty:

For them is a never ending reward.

Tafsir al-Jalalain                                                                                                                        تفسیر الجلالین                                                

وَفِي الْحَدِيث إِذَا بَلَغَ الْمُؤْمِن مِنْ الْكِبَر مَا يُعْجِزهُ عَنْ الْعَمَل كُتِبَ لَهُ مَا كَانَ يَعْمَل

in a Hadeeth it is stated, “When a believer reaches the old age which prevents him from performing good deeds, then what he used to do is recorded in his favour [instead].”

Tafsir al-Jalalain of Imam Jalaaluddin Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Mahalli al-Shafe’i t D. 864 A.H. and Imam Jalaaluddin Abd al-Rahman ibn Abi Bakr al-Suyooti al-Shafe’i t D. 911 A.H.

Tafsir Rooh al-Bayaan                                                                                              تفسیر روح البیان                                                

وفى تفسير ابى الليث روى عن النبي عليه السلام أنه قال ان المؤمن إذا مات صعد الملكان الى السماء فيقولان ان عبدك فلانا قدمات فائذن لنا حتى نعبدك على السماء فيقول الله ان سمواتى مملوءة بملائكتى ولكن اذهبا الى قبره واكتبا حسناته الى يوم القيامة

This Hadeeth of the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – is mentioned in Tafseer Abi al-Laith:  When a believer passes away, two angels (Kiraaman-Kaatibeen) go upto the heaven and say, “A certain servant of Yours has passed away, please allow us so we can worship You in the heaven.”  Allah Almighty then says, “My heavens are filled with My angels but you should rather go to his grave and keep on writing his good deeds till the Day of Judgment.”
