In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
He saith: Enter into
the Fire among nations of the jinn and humankind, who passed away before you.
Every time a nation entereth, it curseth its sister (nation) till, when they have
all been made to follow one another thither, the last of them will say unto
the first of them: Our Lord! These led us astray, so give them double torment
of the Fire.
‘Addaa-rakuu – (will get
together), actually this word was tadaa-rakuu, which has been derived from tadaarak. The origin of tadaarak is darak. Darak means “to find, to get”. Tadaarak means “to meet with one another, getting together”. Here it
aims: at that time, when they all people will see one another in the Hell.
Zi’-fun – (twofold),
it means “to include equal to one thing plus more in the same quantity with it,
whether that is of extra manifold, however at least including once, due to
which that thing becomes double. When the infidels will accept their infidelity
from their own mouth, then they will become assertive offenders. After that
they will be punished properly.
commanded that Allah Almighty will order: Enter into the Fire of Hell all
together along with those all nations of demons and human beings, which were
before you and were involved in the evil of their infidelity, because it is the
punishment of disbelief. We had informed all of you by sending Our Scriptures
and Messengers (peace be upon Them) and warned strictly. If you had understood
it in the world, you would have been saved from the torment of the Fire today. But
you did not believe, so you should suffer now its agony. Therefore, those entire
people will have been entering into the Hell and cursing one another.
When all of them
will assemble in the Hell quarreling and cursing one another, at that time, the
last of those people will say to the first of them and vent their rage in such
manner that they will begin to imprecate for them, They will address Allah
Almighty: O our Lord! These cursed people misled us. Give them double torment of
the Fire than all of us.
It is strange
that the mankind carry on committing the same evils in the world after open and
clear warning like this, from whose result, they have been frightened. The wrongdoers
commit wicked deeds observing other people doing so. Today they look protecting
friends, but on the Day of Resurrection, they will request Allah Almighty to
punish them twofold.
