فَأَخَذْنَٰهُ وَجُنُودَهُۥ فَنَبَذْنَٰهُمْ فِى ٱلْيَمِّ فَٱنظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ 40  وَجَعَلْنَٰهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَدْعُونَ إِلَى ٱلنَّارِ وَيَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ لَا يُنصَرُونَ 41  وَأَتْبَعْنَٰهُمْ فِى هَٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنْيَا لَعْنَةً وَيَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ هُم مِّنَ ٱلْمَقْبُوحِينَ 42

42.  Wa  ‘atba’-Naahum  fii  haazihid-dunyaa  La’-nah.  Wa  Yawmal-Qiyaamati  hum-minal-maqbuuhiin. 

(Section 4)


‘A-‘immatan – (patterns, leaders), this word is plural of Imaam (a Spiritual Guide, to whom the people imitate and follow).


‘Al-maqbuuhiina – (the hateful, the despised), it is plural of maqbuuh, which is (gram.) the Passive Participle and has been derived from qabah. Qabah and Qabaahat mean “badness, depravity). Maqbuuh means “fallen into worse condition”.


It is commanded: Rebellion and insurrection of Pharaoh and his disciples was not of their use. We caught him and his flatterers and threw them into the sea, so that other people may behold how the end of the wrongdoers and the oppressors was. We bestowed them wealth, power and dignity. They had a big influence. The people used to obey them. If they desired, they could guide the people towards the straight path, but they bent into the crookedness, involved in wicked deeds, gripped up their loins on oppressing and obstinacy; and committed such works, punishment of which is the Hell, and they drove other people also on the path of the Hell by their influence. Although they found their supporters in this world, but on the Day of Resurrection; they will not find any helper. Even in this world too; the people will curse them constantly. And on the Day of Resurrection, they shall be among the despised, the distressed and the afflicted certainly.
