Dropping behind own desires

Chapter Hajj” – (The Pilgrimage) – 22

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


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَلَهُم مَّقَٰمِعُ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ 21

كُلَّمَآأَرَادُوٓا۟ أَن يَخْرُجُوا۟ مِنْهَا مِنْ غَمٍّ أُعِيدُوا۟ فِيهَا وَذُوقُوا۟ عَذَابَ ٱلْحَرِيقِ 22

21.  And for them are hooked rods of iron.


22.  Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning.

21.  Wa  lahum-maqaami-‘u  min  hadiid.


22.  Kullamaaa  ‘araaduuu  ‘any-yakhrujuu  minhaa  min  gammin  ‘u-‘iiduu  fiihaa  wa  zuuquu  ‘azaabal-Hariiq.

(Section 2)




Maqaami-‘u – (a sort of iron club, mace, sledge-hammers), this word is plural from miqma-‘atun, which is name of an instrument and has been derived from qama-‘a. Qama-’a means “to exterminate, to beat soundly”.


Condition of those people will be the worst after death, who disbelieved in Allaah Almighty and dropped behind their desires. They consider that they are greatest in the world. If someone says to them: your Lord is the Greatest instead of you, Who created you, Who still has been guarding you and bringing you up. Then they turn up their nose; knit the eyebrows and say: We (Let us flee to Allaah) don’t admit such inharmonious matters.


On the Day of Resurrection, they will be dressed with the clothes of fire and the boiling fluid will be poured upon their heads, which will melt and cause to flow their internal and external body parts, skins and intestines; everything. Then at the same time, those entire parts will be reproduced, and again those will be melted and caused to flow.


It has been commanded in this verse: Their heads, bones and ribs etc. will be broken into pieces by beating soundly with rammers and iron clubs. Then those entire body parts will be corrected and the same act will be practiced. In this manner, their bodies will be burnt and cut, and their souls will bear the shocks of all of them continuously. And if they will wish to come out from the Hell being embarrassed, then they will be returned into the same by trailing again. And it will be said to them: Suffer from the doom of heat, burning and inflammation for ever (Allaah forbid).


Human being is very careless and ignorant, because such kind of clear and unhesitant narration does not exert influence upon them, whereas he knows that he can die any time, disasters have been making a circuit around him, and he does not know that when and where any mishap will become cause of his death.
