Translation

It is not your wealth nor your sons, that will bring you nearer to Us in degree: but only those who believe and work righteousness - these are the ones for whom there is a multiplied Reward for their deeds, while secure they (reside) in the dwellings on high!

Tafsir

Nor is it your wealth or your children that will bring you near to Us in closeness, except for, but [it is], those who believe and act righteously: those, they shall have a twofold reward for what they did, in other words, [they shall have it] as the reward of their action - as a good deed, for example, is rewarded tenfold or more - and they shall be in the lofty abodes, of the Paradise, secure, from death and otherwise (a variant reading [for al-ghurufaat] is al-ghurfa [the generic noun] implying a plural).
