A painful punishment for Idolaters

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)


   وَٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِقَآئِهِۦٓ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ يَئِسُوا۟ مِن رَّحْمَتِى وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ 23  فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِۦٓ إِلَّآ أَن قَالُوا۟ ٱقْتُلُوهُ أَوْ حَرِّقُوهُ فَأَنجَىٰهُ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ 24

23.  And those who disbelieve in the Revelations of Allah and in (their) meeting with Him, such have no hope of My Mercy. For such there is a painful Doom.


24.  But the answer of his folk was only that they said: “Kill him” or “Burn him”. Then Allah saved him from the Fire. Lo! Herein verily are Portents for folk who believe.

23.  Wallaziina  kafaruu  bi-‘Aa-yaaTillaahi  wa  liqaaa-‘iHiii  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  ya-‘isuu  mir-RahmaTii  wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  lahum  ‘Azaabun  ‘aliim.


24.  Famaa  kaana  jawaaba  qawmihiii  ‘illaaa  ‘an-  qaaluq-tuluuhu  ‘aw  harriquuhu  fa-‘anjaa-hUllaahu  minan-Naar.  ‘Inna  fii  zaalika  la-‘Aayaatil-luqawminy-yu’-minuun.



Mankind falls in the love of this world so much that he forgets thinking about his death and is not ready to believe that he would have to be present before Allaah Almighty. The same condition was of the Idolaters of Makkah. They used to do according to their will, stand before the idols with folded hands and adore them. It has been described in Holy Qur’an that the same state was of the folk of Abraham (peace be upon him). He (peace be upon him) caused to understand them: The death is essential and it keeps no calendar. After that, Allaah Almighty will bring you back to life again, call you before Himself and ask you about your entire deeds. The people of folk answered: We do not believe in it. He (peace be upon him) said: Those who do not know Allaah Almighty after looking His Portents and do not believe in their presence after death before Him, Allaah Almighty commands: Say to them: Do not rely on My Mercy. Painful Doom is ready for you.


Having not any answer, the people of Abraham (peace be upon him) said: Kill this person or burn him as he has been annoying us. Therefore, they threw Abraham (peace be upon him) into the pyre of the fire.


Allaah Almighty commands: We saved him (peace be upon him) from the fire. The Believers should understand from it that at last; they will be successful and the Disbelievers will be ruined.
