An Awful Doom Will Be For Evil-doers


An Awful Doom Will Be For Evil-doers

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

Verses –175 & 176 of 200, Section –18 (Part – 4)


175. It is only the devil who would make (men) fear his partisans. So fear them not; and fear Me, if ye are true believers.


176. Let not their conduct grieve thee, who run easily to disbelief, for lo! they injure Allah not at all. It is Allah’s Will to assign them no portion in the Hereafter, and theirs will be an awful doom.

175.  ’Innamaa zaalikumush-Shay-taanu  yukhaw-wifu  ‘awli-yaaa-‘ah.  Falaa  takhaa-fuuhum  wa  khaafuuni  ‘in-  kuntum-Mu’-miniin. 

176. Wa laa  yah-zunkallaziina  yusaari-‘uuna  fil-kufr.  ‘Inna-hum  lany—yazurrullaaha  shay-‘aa.  Yurii-dullaahu  ‘allaa  yaj-‘ala  lahum  hazzan-  fil-‘Aakhirah.  Wa  lahum  ‘azaabun  ‘aziim. 




yukhaw-wifu  – (frightens, terrifies), that is to say; the fear and concern about the future. Devilish temptations perplex and make the human being anxious always about his future. The words takhaa-fuuhum  and  khaafuuni  in this lesson have been derived from the word ‘Khawf’ which means fear and fright.


‘awli-yaaa-‘ahu – (his partisans, his friends, his helpers and his supporters). Singular of this word is walii. Due to suitableness of this word’s meanings, the pious and good persons are called ‘awli-yaaa-‘Allaah.


yusaari-‘uuna – (they run easily), it means, “they make haste, hasten.


Allah Almighty commands that the person who wants to inspire the awe about your enemy through spreading the false news, is disciple of the Devil and mislead by Satan. His aim is to frighten you by inspiring with their awe. Therefore, do not fear them if you have faith (you are truly Believers). Allah Almighty affirmed, “You have proved practically that you do not fear the Devil. So, do not fear wholly these devils, but fear Me only. Hypocrites run easily to disbelief due to his false news, for lo!  They injure Allah not at all; let not their conduct grieve you. Neither they can damage anything which belongs to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), nor they can harm the Religion of Allah Almighty, but they are harming themselves only. It is Allah’s Will to assign them no portion in the Hereafter as retaliation of their hypocrisy, and an awful doom is waiting for them on the Doomsday.
