Idol-worshippers will be brought before Us

Chapter “YAA-SIIIN” – (YASIN) – 36

‘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)


لَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ نَصْرَهُمْ وَهُمْ لَهُمْ جُندٌ مُّحْضَرُونَ 75

 فَلَا يَحْزُنكَ قَوْلُهُمْ 76a

75.  It is not in their power to help them; and they (the worshippers) will be brought before Us as army of them (false gods).


76a.  So let not their speech grieve thee (O  Muhammad).

75.  Laa  yastatii-‘uuna  nasrahum  wa  hum  lahum  jundum-  muhzaruun.


76a.  Falaa  yahzunka  qawluhum.


Jundun – (army),


It is commanded: These ignorant people have fabricated their imaginary gods and are hopeful that those will help them in the times of adversity. They should know it clearly that while their self-made gods cannot help even themselves then how those can help their adorers. Those entire themselves are needy of the help of Allaah Almighty at every step. In the world, these people have been assembled around their false deities and every group supports fully to own self-made god and they do not like to hear even one word against their gods. They present many precious things in sacrifice upon them and consider foolishly that their (these) deities have been providing them everything and help them during the times of calamities, whereas those do not have any power to help any other. When they will need actual help on the Day of Resurrection, then their every group will desire that their false deities should support them at That Time. Adorers of every false deity will come arrested like defeated army. They will be said (on That Day): Say to your self-fabricated gods that they should save you from the wrath of Allaah Almighty.


Their all false deities will refuse and say: We were never their gods and nor we ever said that they should accept us as their gods. We do not have any connection with them. They should suffer for what they did. At that time, condition of infidels, disbelievers and idolaters will be worst.


After that, it is commanded: O Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him)! You should not be grieved from the speech of these ignorant people. They do not use their sense. At last they will repent.
