Abode of Loss for wrongdoers is the Hell

Quran Chapter 14  28 & 29 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1633) – درس قرآن

Abode of Loss for wrongdoers is the Hell

Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) – 14

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ بَدَّلُوا۟ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ كُفْرًا وَأَحَلُّوا۟قَوْمَهُمْ دَارَ ٱلْبَوَارِ 28

جَهَنَّمَ يَصْلَوْنَهَا وَبِئْسَ ٱلْقَرَارُ 29

28.  Hast thou not seen those who gave the Grace of Allah in exchange for thanklessness and led their people down to the Abode of Loss-


29.  (Even to) Hell? They are exposed therein. And a hapless end!!

(Section 5)


28.  ‘A-lam  tara-  ‘ilal-laziina  baddaluu  Ni’-matAllaahi  kuf-ranw-wa  ‘ahalluu  qaw-mahum  Daaral-Bawaar.


29.  Jahannam.  Yaslaw-nahaa.  Wa  bi’-sal-qaraar.




Baddaluu – (they changed), it is past tense from the word tab-diil, which means “to change, to alter, to give in exchange”. Singular of this word is Baddala, which has passed in Suratul-Baqarah.


Bawaar – (loss, destruction, ruin), origin of this word is baw-run, which means “to be ruined”. For Idolaters of Makkah, Daaral-Bawaar was the Field of Badr in the world, whereas for the entire wrongdoers, in the Hereafter, Daaral-Bawaar will be “the Hell”.


Yaslaw-na – (they will enter). Origin of this word is sal-yun, here it means “entering into the Fire”.


Allah Almighty appointed them chieftains over the Qureish, bestowed them honor over the entire people of the Arab and made them awe-inspiring. For their guidance, He sent Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) appointing from them, His last Messenger (who was appointed as a Guide for them and for the entire world). How much a great Grace of God is upon us if we think?


Alas! They gave the Grace of Allah Almighty in exchange of thanklessness and infidelity. So they were accursed by Heaven, as well as they entangled their folk too in destruction and ruin along with themselves, who used to consider them their spiritual guides.


Holy Qur’aan promises that the Heaven is for the Good and the Hell is for wrongdoers. They opposed the Word of God and liked the Fire of the Hell. Now they will enter into the Hell. They are being warned once again that “Understand it carefully that the Hell is the Abode of Loss”
