Rightful Owners Of The Fire


Rightful Owners Of The Fire

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse –116 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)


Lo! the riches and the progeny of those who disbelieve will not avail them aught against Allah; and such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein forever.

‘Innal-laziina  kafaruu  lan-tugniya  ‘anhum  ‘amwaa-luhum  wa laaa  ‘awlaaduhum-minal-laahi  shay-‘aa. Wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  ‘As-haabun-Naar. Hum  fiihaa  khaaliduun.






After describing about the righteous people, now discussion about the Infidels begins. Allah Almighty has commanded in this verse that only Belief is the thing, which will help in the World and the Hereafter. Nothing of the worldly things like wealth and property, children and family will help the human being. For these things, someone must not deteriorate his/her Hereafter.


This matter has already been explained earlier that biggest reason for human being, which attracts towards the infidelity and denial, is the wealth, property and the children. These things tempt the person, he loves, keeps them very dare and forgets the difference between right and wrong being in love with them. Sometimes he becomes ready to sacrifice the honesty, truth, justice and virtue. He imagines that piles of wealth and property, sons and relatives will help him everywhere. These things will ward off his each misfortune. This immature person does not understand that these entire things are mortal. Their life is for a few days. These all are inferior and unreal things, which will not provide him any support. The real thing is the Wealth of Belief, which is sustainable and eternal, due to which humankind gets respect and honor in the world as well as wants success in the Hereafter.



Today we see so much such people around us who are proud of their wealth, puffed up upon the majority of their children, and who have pride for their property and factories. They consider these things as their belief and religion, and being in haughtiness of these things, they forget their Lord and Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), laugh at the good and simpleton human beings. Their last destination is the Hell, in whose Fire they will remain burning forever.


As though, the success and the failure, the torment and the meed of the Hereafter will be according to mankind’s deeds. In the Scale of Justice, these acts will be weighed. Their names and family background will be useless.
