Every individual will be questioned

Chapter ’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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


وَمَا هُم بِحَٰمِلِينَ مِنْ خَطَٰيَٰهُم مِّن شَىْءٍ إِنَّهُمْ لَكَٰذِبُونَ 12  وَلَيَحْمِلُنَّ أَثْقَالَهُمْ وَأَثْقَالًا مَّعَ أَثْقَالِهِمْ وَلَيُسْـَٔلُنَّ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ عَمَّا كَانُوا۟ يَفْتَرُونَ 13

12b.  They cannot bear aught of their sins. Lo! They verily are liars.


13.  And they verily will bear their own loads and other loads beside their own, and they verily will be questioned on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they invented.

12b.  Wa  maa  hum  bi-haamiliina  min  khataa-yaahum-min-  shay’.  ‘Innahum  la-kaazibuun.


13.  Wa  la-yahmilunna  ‘asqaa-lahum  wa  ‘asqaalam-ma-‘a  ‘asqaalihim,  wa  la-yus-‘alunna  Yawmal-Qiyaamati  ‘ammaa  kaanuu  yaftaruun. 

(Section 1)


It is commanded: This is bad cheating. They tell a lie. None can carry the burdens of others’ sins; because load of their own sins will be so heavy that they will be buried below it. How can they bear the burdens of your sins while they will be carrying double burden, one – burden of their own sins, and secondly – load of the sins of those people to whom they misled and they were involved in sins. These miserable people committed sins by their seducing. The burden of the sins will be carried by them who committed. But they will bear the burden separately who lead astray. See their apparent boldness that they are ready to carry the load of your sins, and wish to infuse in your hearts that like this; you will not be punished.


Their saying so depends on their self-invented thoughts. Concerning it they will be questioned: Speak! How did you consider that you will be able to bear the punishment of their sins and they will be saved from the Doom? It is entirely a lie and contrary to the news.


The fact is this that whosoever will excite any other for committing sin, will certainly be punished because he misled for the sin. However the sinner will also be punished properly due to committing the sin.


12b) But they will not carry anything of their sins. Indeed, they are liars. (29:13) But they will surely carry their [own] burdens and [other] burdens along with their burdens, and they will surely be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about what they used to invent.
