Result of worshiping beside Allaah

Chapter ’Ambiyaaa’” – (The Prophets) – 21

 ‘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.)

إِنَّكُمْ وَمَاتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ حَصَبُ جَهَنَّمَ أَنتُمْ لَهَا وَٰرِدُونَ 98

 لَوْ كَانَ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ ءَالِهَةً مَّا وَرَدُوهَا وَكُلٌّ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ 99

 لَهُمْ فِيهَا زَفِيرٌ وَهُمْ فِيهَا لَا يَسْمَعُونَ 100


98.  Lo! Ye (idolaters) and that which ye worship beside Allah will be fuel of Hell. Thereunto ye will come.


99. If these had been gods they would not have come thither. And all will abide therein for ever.


100.  Therein wailing is their portion, and therein they hear  not.

98.  ‘Innakum  wa  maa  ta’-buduuna  min-  duuNillaahi  hasabu  Jahannam.  ‘Antum  lahaa  waariduun.


99.  Law  kaana  haaa-‘ulaaa-‘i  ‘aalihatam-maa  waraduu-haa.  Wa  kullun  fiihaa  khaaliduun.


100.  Lahum  fiihaa  zafiirunw-wa  hum  fiihaa  laa  yasma-‘uun.




It has been commanded in this verse that there is only one form of escaping from self-reproach that you should give up worshiping others than Allaah Almighty without further delay and think that these idols are nothing opposite to Allaah Almighty. If you did not refrain from adoring them; then you will be thrown into the Hell. And these entire lifeless idols will also become fuel of the Hell, so that the condition of their helplessness and disgrace may be manifested upon you, and your regret and desire should increase more than earlier, although at that time screaming and crying by you will be useless. But you will cry in such grievous sound and due to pain of torment you will wail as much that no sound coming to ears will be heard. Then neither you will be delivered from that torment and nor your idols will be able to help you.


Both (worshipers and worshipped) will become fuel of the Fire, but for the worshipers; grief and suffering will be cause of trouble. And although the idols (worshiped) will not feel pain, but their disgrace will be a separate punishment of soul for their worshipers.
