Whoever pardons and makes reconciliation - his reward is [due] from Allah.. (ash-Shura 42:20)

Surat Al-Shuraa (42:40):

وَجَزَاء سَيِّئَةٍ سَيِّئَةٌ مِّثْلُهَا فَمَنْ عَفَا وَأَصْلَحَ فَأَجْرُهُ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ (

And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation - his reward is [due] from Allah. Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers.
What does this mean; that his ajr/reward rests with Allah? 

It means; "The pages of the Quran are unable to hold this ajr/reward that is mentioned. That, also the dunya/world and everything within it could not carry this ajr so that it can be mentioned. So Allah (swt) preserved it in Ilm AL-Ghayb [the knowledge of the Unseen] so that he can reward those who forgive/pardon others and make peace with them with an unimaginable reward!
