No person will be wronged on Doomsday

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

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

                  يَوْمَ نَدْعُوا۟ كُلَّ أُنَاسٍۭ بِإِمَٰمِهِمْ فَمَنْ أُوتِىَ كِتَٰبَهُۥ بِيَمِينِهِۦ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ يَقْرَءُونَ كِتَٰبَهُمْ وَلَا يُظْلَمُونَفَتِيلًا 71

  وَمَن كَانَ فِى هَٰذِهِۦٓ أَعْمَىٰ فَهُوَ فِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ أَعْمَىٰ وَأَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا 72


71.  On the Day when We shall summon all men with their leaders then whoso is given his book in his right hand – such will read their book and they will not be wronged a shred.


72.  And whoso is blind here; will be blind in the Hereafter, and are far astray from the Path.

71.  Yawma  Nad-‘uu  kulla  ‘unaasim-  bi-‘Imaamihim.  Fa-man  ‘uutiya  kitaabahuu  bi-ya-miinihii  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  yaqra-‘uuna  kitaaba-hum  wa  laa  yuzlamuuna  fatiilaa.


72.  Wa  man-  kaana  fii  haazi-hiii  ‘a’-maa  fa-huwa  fil- ‘Aakhirati  ‘a’-maa  wa  ‘azallu  Sabiilaa.




Fatiilan – (a shred), origin of this word is fatala, which means “to twist”. By twisting the cotton etc. thread is prepared. Like the same, a very thin skin is found in the middle of the date-stone. These both are called fatiil.


‘Imaamun – (leader, guide, the head of a party), it aims every that thing, faith, imaginations, matters or habits, of which a mankind becomes slave.


‘Unaasun – (tribes, sects, classes etc.), this word is plural of ‘insun, which is name of the entire mankind. Purpose of using this word as plural is that all classes of the human beings become manifest.


It is commanded in this verse: We shall pass an order to every mankind on the Day of Resurrection that he/she should be present before Us. Then Conduct Sheet (Record of worldly deeds) of every individual will be handed over to them. To whom this Book is given in right hand, will read it happily and will be rewarded because of own good deeds. No one of them will be wronged even equal to a shred.


But the person, who would have chosen devilish thoughts and committed wicked deeds, will be disgraced on the Day of Resurrection. As nothing good was visible to them during the life of this world, on that Day also, they will not be able to see any thing save the darkness of despair and misfortune. And they will be far astray from ease and peace after death.
