Translation

There, the (only) protection comes from Allah, the True One. He is the Best to reward, and the Best to give success.

Tafsir

There, that is, [on] the Day of Resurrection, [all] protection (walaaya; if read wilaaya, then [it means] 'sovereignty') belongs to God, the True (if read as al-haqqu then it is as an adjective qualifying walaaya [or wilaaya], or [if] read as al-haqqi, then it is an attribute of [God's] Majesty). He is better at rewarding, than the rewarding of any [person] other than Him, if such [a person] were [in a position to] reward; and best in consequence (read 'uquban or 'uqban), [He is best] in terms of the consequence for believers (both [thawaaban, 'rewarding', and 'uqban, 'consequence'] are in the accusative for [the purpose of] specification).
