The people who lose their souls

Chapter Mu’-minuun” – (The Believers) – 23

‘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)

فَمَن ثَقُلَتْ مَوَٰزِينُهُۥ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ 102  وَمَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَٰزِينُهُۥ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ خَسِرُوٓا۟ أَنفُسَهُمْ فِى جَهَنَّمَ خَٰلِدُونَ 103

102.  Then those whose scales are heavy, they are the successful.


103.  And those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls, in Hell abiding for ever.

102.  Faman  saqulat  mawaa-ziinuhuu  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  humul-  Muflihuun.


103.  Wa  man  khaffat  mawaa-ziinuhuu  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ikallaziina  khasiruuu  ‘anfusa-hum  fii  Jahannama  khaaliduun.




Our Lord! Forgive us! How much it has become difficult for the mankind to understand today that whatever he has been doing in this world; is being recorded continuously. After death they will be given life again, and rough accounts of their deeds will be produced before them. Then their deeds will be weighed. That person will be successful whose scales will be heavy and he will escape from all perplexities. He will gain perpetual pleasure. Grief and sadness will not touch him. He will get fruit of that which he had sown in this world.


Contrary to above, scales of whose will be light and weightless, evil will come upon him. He will come to know it clearly that he acted during worldly life totally fruitlessly, did great businesses, collected abundant wealth and property, constructed very high buildings, invented heavy machines, became very famous, the people saluted whence passed and they spoke “he is really a great and respectable person. All people consider that he is a powerful person. His talk is very weighty. He has many bungalows and motor cars et.”


On the Day of Resurrection, such kind of people will come to know that the entire worldly pomp and show was weightless. They would have to abide in the Hell compulsorily for ever.
