Translation

So fear Allah as much as ye can; listen and obey and spend in charity for the benefit of your own soul and those saved from the covetousness of their own souls,- they are the ones that achieve prosperity.

Tafsir

So fear God as far as you can - this abrogates His saying: Fear God as He should be feared [Q. 3:102] - and listen, to what you have been enjoined to, listening disposed to accept, and obey and expend, in obedience [to Him]; that is better for your souls (khayran li-anfusikum is the predicate of an implied yakun, '[that] is', and the response to the imperative). And whoever is shielded from the avarice of his own soul, such are the successful, the winners.
