Assembling around the Hell

Chapter Maryam (Mary) – 19

‘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)


   وَيَقُولُ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ أَءِذَا مَا مِتُّ لَسَوْفَ أُخْرَجُ حَيًّا 66

 أَوَلَا يَذْكُرُ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ أَنَّا خَلَقْنَٰهُ مِن قَبْلُ وَلَمْ يَكُ شَيْـًٔا 67

 فَوَرَبِّكَلَنَحْشُرَنَّهُمْ وَٱلشَّيَٰطِينَ ثُمَّ لَنُحْضِرَنَّهُمْ حَوْلَ جَهَنَّمَ جِثِيًّا 68


66.  And man saith: When I am dead, shall I forsooth be brought forth alive?


67.  Doth not man remember that We created him before, when he was naught?


68.  By thy Lord, verily We shall assemble them and the devils, then We shall bring them, crouching, around Hell.

66.  Wa  yaquulul-‘insaanu  ‘a-‘izaa-  maa-mittu  la-sawfa  ‘ukhraju  hayyaa.


67.  ‘Awa-  laa  yazkurul-‘insaanu  ‘annaa  khalaqNaahu  min-  qablu  wa  lam  yaku  shay-‘aa.


68.  Fawa  Rabbika  laNah-shurannahum  wash-shayaatiina  summa  la-Nuhzi-rannahum  hawla  Jahannama  jisiyyaa.




Mittu (I am dead), it is the first person singular in past tense from the word ma-wa-ta, origin of which is ma-ya-ta, so the first person singular in past tense comes on the weight of muttu and mittu (both words).


Jisiyyun – (in crouching condition), this word is plural of jaasin, which is the Subject from jusuwwun. Jusuwwun means “to crouch”. Actually this word was jusuu-yun, but after changing of vowels; it became “jisiyyun”.

After hearing these sayings, some people said with wonder: Shall we undoubtedly be brought forth alive after death? After copying their words, it has been replied that “the mankind should not forget that Allah Almighty is Who created them first time in the world. Apparently there was no sign of them on the earth. Allah Almighty created them alive as mankind by His Power, then enlarged them by nourishing and provided them timely their entire required things.


Why does the mankind forget the omnipotence of his Lord? We remind the Power of your Lord again to the mankind and say: By your Lord; Who is Omnipotent, We shall reproduce all of them on the Day of Resurrection and assemble them along with the devils (who used to mislead the human beings) in a Field altogether. The Hell will be in their centre and they will be crouching due to fear of terror.
