and reward them for their perseverance with a Garden ˹in Paradise˺ and ˹garments of˺ silk.
مُّتَّكِـِٔينَ فِيهَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرَآئِكِ ۖ لَا يَرَوْنَ فِيهَا شَمْسًۭا وَلَا زَمْهَرِيرًۭا ١٣
There they will be reclining on ˹canopied˺ couches, never seeing scorching heat or bitter cold.1
وَدَانِيَةً عَلَيْهِمْ ظِلَـٰلُهَا وَذُلِّلَتْ قُطُوفُهَا تَذْلِيلًۭا ١٤
The Garden’s shade will be right above them, and its fruit will be made very easy to reach.

They will be waited on with silver vessels and cups of crystal—
قَوَارِيرَا۟ مِن فِضَّةٍۢ قَدَّرُوهَا تَقْدِيرًۭا ١٦

۞ وَيَطُوفُ عَلَيْهِمْ وِلْدَٰنٌۭ مُّخَلَّدُونَ إِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ حَسِبْتَهُمْ لُؤْلُؤًۭا مَّنثُورًۭا ١٩

How is Jannah described in surah Insan?
From the verses of surah al Insaan about Jannah, each person will have a garden of his own, and clothe will be made of silk. The weather will be not too cold or too hot.

Why was surah Insan revealed?
Ya ayyuhal insan ma gharraka surah mentions two main topics. The first is the illness of Hassan and Hussain. Allah ordered the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) to fast for three continuous days. Therefore, he did and so did his daughter Fatima, Ali, and their servant Fiḍḍah.
يُوفُونَ بِٱلنَّذْرِ وَيَخَافُونَ يَوْمًۭا كَانَ شَرُّهُۥ مُسْتَطِيرًۭا ٧
“They fulfill their vows and fear a day who’s ill will be widespread.”

Even though it was so hard to keep going they did and they gave their food to the people in need. As the following verse states.
وَيُطْعِمُونَ ٱلطَّعَامَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِۦ مِسْكِينًۭا وَيَتِيمًۭا وَأَسِيرًا ٨
“and give food—despite their desire for it—to the poor, the orphan, and the captive.”

Whenever someone came to their doors who needs food, they gave it to them. And they didn’t care about their condition and how they started to get weak. To them feeding the needy, the orphan, and the prisoner was more important than feeding themselves. That’s why Allah told them about their reward in paradise, And Hassan and Hussain were cured.

The second topic discussed in the Insan surah is Ali was a good person who worshiped Allah day and night. He fasted day by day, prayed the night prayer, and gave out zakat. That’s why the following verse was revealed about him.

“Did he come upon man when he was from eternity?”

surah Insan Tafseer.
هَلْ أَتَىٰ عَلَى ٱلْإِنسَـٰنِ حِينٌۭ مِّنَ ٱلدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْـًۭٔا مَّذْكُورًا ١
Is there not a period of time when each human is nothing yet worth mentioning?1
إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍۢ نَّبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَـٰهُ سَمِيعًۢا بَصِيرًا ٢
˹For˺ indeed, We ˹alone˺ created humans from a drop of mixed fluids,1 ˹in order˺ to test them, so We made them hear and see.
إِنَّا هَدَيْنَـٰهُ ٱلسَّبِيلَ إِمَّا شَاكِرًۭا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا ٣
We already showed them the Way, whether they ˹choose to˺ be grateful or ungrateful.”

 

Here is the tafsir of the first verses of surah Insan:

 

Allah informs that He brought man into existence after he was not even a thing worth mentioning, due to his lowliness and weakness. Allah says,

 
هَلْ أَتَى عَلَى الإِنسَـنِ حِينٌ مِّنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْئاً مَّذْكُوراً
(Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was not a thing worth mentioning) Then Allah explains this by saying,
إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الإِنسَـنَ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ
(Verily, We have created man from Nutfah Amshaj,) meaning, mixed. The words Mashaj and Mashij mean something that is mixed together. Ibn Abbas said concerning Allah’s statement,
مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ
(from Nutfah Amshaj,) “This means the fluid of the man and the fluid of the woman when they meet and mix.” Then man changes after this from stage to stage, condition to condition, and color to color. `Ikrimah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, and Ar-Rabi` bin Anas all made statements similar to this. They said, “Amshaj is the mixing of the man’s fluid with the woman’s fluid.” Concerning Allah’s statement,
نَّبْتَلِيهِ
(in order to try him,) means, `We test him.’ It is similar to Allah’s statement,
لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلاً
(That He may test you which of you is best in deed.) (67:2) Then Allah says,
فَجَعَلْنَـهُ سَمِيعاً بَصِيراً
(so, We made him hearer and seer.) meaning, `We gave him the faculties of hearing and sight so that he would be able to use them for obedience and disobedience.’
إِنَّا هَدَيْنَـهُ السَّبِيلَ
(Verily, We guided to him the way,) meaning, `We explained it to him, made it clear to him and showed it to him.’ This is as Allah says,

 
وَأَمَّا ثَمُودُ فَهَدَيْنَـهُمْ فَاسْتَحَبُّواْ الْعَمَى عَلَى الْهُدَى
(And as for Thamud, We guided them but they preferred blindness to guidance.) (41:17) Allah also said,

 
وَهَدَيْنَـهُ النَّجْدَينِ
(And We guided him to the two ways.) (90:10) meaning, `We explained to him the path of good and the path of evil.’ This is the statement of `Ikrimah, `Atiyah, Ibn Zayd, and Mujahid from what is well-known to him and the majority. Allah then says,

 
إِمَّا شَاكِراً وَإِمَّا كَفُوراً
(Whether he be grateful or ungrateful.) This is his decree. Thus, with this, he is either wretched or happy. This is like what has been recorded by Muslim in a Hadith from Abu Malik Al-Ash`ari. He said that the Messenger of Allah said,
«كُلُّ النَّاسِ يَغْدُو فَبَائِعٌ نَفْسَهُ، فَمُوبِقُهَا أَوْ مُعْتِقُهَا»
(All of mankind wakes up in the morning the merchant of his own soul. So he either imprisons it or sets it free. )
 Hadith on surah al Insan.
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said about surah Insan:

“One who studies Surah Hal-ata (Surah Insan) will be rewarded Heaven and clothes of silk (in Heaven) by Allah.”

Imam Baqir said:

“One of the rewards for a person who studies Surah Hal-ata every Thursday morning is that he will be with the Prophet (S) on the Day of Judgement.”
