‘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)
وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓا۟ أَءِذَا كُنَّا تُرَٰبًا وَءَابَآؤُنَآ أَئِنَّا لَمُخْرَجُونَ 67 لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا هَٰذَا نَحْنُ وَءَابَآؤُنَا مِن قَبْلُ إِنْ هَٰذَآ إِلَّآ أَسَٰطِيرُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ 68
|67. And those who disbelieve say: When we have become dust like our fathers, shall we verily be brought forth (again)?
68. We were promised this, forsooth; we and our fathers. (All) this is naught but fables of the men of old.
|67. Wa qaalallaziina kafaruuu ‘a-‘izaa kunnaa turaabanw-wa ‘aabaaa-‘unaaa ‘a-‘innaa la-mukhrajuun.
68. Laqad wu-‘idnaa haazaa nahnu wa ‘aabaaa-‘unaa min- qablu, ‘in haazaaa ‘illaaa ‘asaatiirul-‘awwaliin.
It was described in the previous lesson that nobody knows that when the Day of Resurrection will come. Only Allaah Almighty knows it, because save Him, no one have knowledge concerning the Unseen. Many of the people were involved; sometimes in doubt and sometimes they denied.
It has been commanded in this verse that the people who do not believe in Allaah Almighty, cannot be aware of the truth concerning the Hereafter. They say: There is no doubt that we have to die, but how may we have belief that when we became dust after death, then we and our parents who died long ago, will be reproduced after bringing them out from the earth. These are legends only which we heard during the whole life. And before us, our ancestors heard the same like us. Thousands of centuries have passed, but neither we heard and nor saw that any mankind was raised again after death. Someone would have said any time that the human beings would be brought forth again after death, their deeds would be reckoned and they would be rewarded or punished according to their deeds. Afterwards, they began to express their opinions about it. The people multiplied their words, made stories and by relating; posteriors listened to the stories of the formers. The same stories (God forbid) have been recorded in Qur’an, whereas there is no reality in it, so none should be entangled in this dispute willing or not willing.
