Hell will encompass the disbelievers

Chapter ’Al-‘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)


   وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِٱلْعَذَابِ وَلَوْلَآ أَجَلٌ مُّسَمًّى لَّجَآءَهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ وَلَيَأْتِيَنَّهُم بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ 53  يَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِٱلْعَذَابِ وَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ لَمُحِيطَةٌۢ بِٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ 54  يَوْمَ يَغْشَىٰهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ مِن فَوْقِهِمْ وَمِن تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِهِمْ وَيَقُولُ ذُوقُوا۟ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ55

53.  They bid thee hasten on the Doom (of Allah). And if a term had not been appointed, the Doom would assuredly have come unto them (ere now). And verily it will come upon them suddenly when they perceive not.


54.  They bid thee hasten on the Doom, and lo! Hell verily will encompass the disbelievers –


55.  On the Day when the Doom will overwhelm them from above them and from underneath their feet, and He will say: Taste what ye used to do!

53.  Wa  yasta’-jiluunaka  bil-‘Azaab.  Wa  law-laaa  ‘ajalum-musammal-lajaaa-‘ahumul-‘Azaab.  Wa  laya’-tiyannahum  bagtatanw-wa  hum  laa  yash-‘uruun.


54.  Yasta’-jiluunaka  bil-‘Azaab.  Wa  ‘inna  Jahannama  la-muhiita-tum-  bil-kaafiriin.


55.  Yawma  yagshaa-humul-‘azaabu  min-  fawqihim  wa  min  tahti  ‘arjulihim  wa  Yaquulu  zuuquu  maa  kuntum  ta’-maluun.



For them, who are influenced by outward show, this world has become so attractive that they forget everything in the existing merriments. The same condition was of the Infidels of Makkah. They used to say: In what manner Belief and in what manner Doom? Even before the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), a man named Nazar son of Al-Haris, said unhesitatingly: Afflict us or cause to hail upon us if you speak the truth!


In reply, it is commanded: They urge you to hasten the punishment. Undoubtedly they deserve immediate punishment due to their wicked deeds, but a term of punishment has also been specified like other things. When that time will reach, then they will be careless and the Doom will come to them suddenly, but they do not perceive. Accordingly, the disbelievers were slain by believers after a few days. Moreover, the Doom of the Doomsday has already been encompassing them. Their present infidelity, ascribing plurality to Allaah Almighty and oppressing the innocent are Hell for them. The matters which they consider ordinary today; will surround them from above them and from below their feet in the Hereafter, becoming fire, snakes and scorpions. At that time, the Angel (peace be upon him) of the Doom will say: Taste the result of what you used to do.
