Quranic Inspiration 225

And when it was said, ‘Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth and the Hour [is coming] – no doubt about it,’ you said, ‘We know not what is the Hour. We assume only assumption, and we are not convinced.’


And the evil consequences of what they did will appear to them, and they will be enveloped by what they used to ridicule.


And it will be said, “Today We will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours, and your refuge is the Fire, and for you there are no helpers.


That is because you took the verses of Allah in ridicule, and worldly life deluded you.” So that Day they will not be removed from it, nor will they be asked to appease [ Allah ].

Chapter 45 Al-Jāthiyah : Verses 32-35

Explanatory Notes:

Allah states to us His judgement in His creation on the Day of Resurrection

(And when it was said: “Verily, Allah’s promise is the truth, and there is no doubt about the coming of the Hour,”) `when the believers said these words to you;’

(you said: “We know not what is the Hour…”) `we do not recognize what you are talking about,’

(we do not think it but conjecture,) `we only remotely think that it might come,’

(and we have no firm convincing belief (therein).) `we are not sure of it.’ Allah said,

(And the evil of what they did will appear to them,) the repercussion of their evil deeds will become apparent to them,

(and will completely encircle them.) from all directions,

(that which they used to mock at) of the coming torment and punishment,

(And it will be said: “This Day We will forget you…”) `We will treat you as if We have forgotten you, casting you in the fire of Jahannam,’

(as you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours.) `and did not work for it because you did not believe in its coming,’

(And your abode is the Fire, and there is none to help you.) In the Sahih, it is reported that Allah the Exalted will ask some of His servants on the Day of Resurrection,

(“Have I not given you a spouse, honored you and subjected the camels and horses to you Have I not allowed you to be a chief and a master” The servant will say in answer, “Yes, O Lord!” Allah will say,

“Did you think that you would ever meet Me” He will say, “No.” Allah the Exalted will say, “then this Day, I will forget you as you forgot Me.”) Allah the Exalted said,

(This, because you took the revelations of Allah in mockery.) `We gave you this punishment as retribution because you mocked Allah’s proofs that He sent to you, and made them the subject of jokes and jest,’

(and the life of the world deceived you.) `this life fooled you and you were seduced by to it, thus becoming among the ultimate losers,’

(So this Day, they shall not be taken out from there), from Hellfire,

(nor shall they be returned to the worldly life.) no apologies shall be sought from them, but they will be punished without limit or delay, just as a group of the believers will enter Paradise without limit or delay.
