Tafsir As Sa’adi

Allah says, encouraging His believing slaves, strengthening their resolve and raising their spirits:

So do not lose heart nor grieve) that is, do not weaken physically, and do not let your hearts be filled with grief because of the calamity that has befallen you and the trial you have gone through.

Grief in the heart and physical weakness will only make the calamity worse for you and give your enemy an advantage over you.

Rather you should be of good courage and be steadfast, ward off grief and strengthen your resolve to fight your enemy.

Here Allah tells them that it is not appropriate or befitting for them to lose heart and feel grief when they will overcome by virtue of their faith and hope of the support and reward of Allah.

The believer who is certain of what Allah has promised of reward in this world and the hereafter should not feel like that.

Hence Allah says: for you will overcome if you are [truly] believers.
