Reply to the wrongdoers

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)

رَبَّنَآ أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْهَا فَإِنْ عُدْنَا فَإِنَّا ظَٰلِمُونَ 107  قَالَٱخْسَـُٔوا۟ فِيهَا وَلَا تُكَلِّمُونِ 108  إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْ عِبَادِى يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا فَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّٰحِمِينَ 109


107.  Our Lord! Oh, bring us forth from hence! If we return (to evil) then indeed we shall be wrongdoers.


108.  He saith: Begone therein, and speak not unto Me.


109.  Lo! There was a party of My slaves who said: Our Lord! We believe, therefore forgive us and have mercy on us for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.

107.  Rabbanaaa  ‘akhrijnaa  minhaa  fa-‘in  ‘udnaa  fa-‘innaa  zaalmuun.


108.  Qaalakh-sa-‘uu  fiihaa  waa  laa  tukallimuuN.


109.  ‘Innahuu  kaana  fariiqum-min  ‘ibaaDii  yaquuluunaa  “Rabbanaaa  ‘aamannaa  fagfir-lanaa  warhamnaa  wa  ‘anTa  Khayrur-raahimiin”.




‘Akh-sa-‘uu – (Begone!, Get away!), it is a word of command from the word khas-‘un, which means “to go away”. The word ‘ikhsaa-‘un is used for reproving a dog.


Hellish people will grieve badly, scream and cry out in the Hell due to pain and affliction. They will request: Our Lord! We acted fruitlessly in the world and did not obey Your Command. Our Lord! Send us back once again into the world from the Hell. We assure You that we shall do good works and obey Your every Command with head and heart after returning from here. If we commit obstinacy again as we did earlier, then we shall deserve absolutely to be called oppressor, wrongdoer and tyrant etc. Then, punish us as You wish!


Allaah Almighty will answer them: Get away and live in the Hell silently. Don’t speak unto Me! You crossed the line in insurrection during your worldly life. You used to see that a party of My slaves prays in My Court and says: Our Lord! We believe. Therefore forgive our errors and sins, and have mercy on us, for You are Best of all who show mercy.
