Tell them, O Muhammad that the knowledge of the hour is with Allah Almighty, and I’m only a clear warner.

Tafseer of Surah Mulk

Tafseer of Surah Al-Mulk verse No. 27-28

Allah Almighty said in the verse No. 27,

(۲۷) فَلَمَّا رَاَوْهُ زُلْفَةً سِیْٓــٴَـتْ وُجُوْهُ الَّذِیْنَ كَفَرُوْا وَ قِیْلَ هٰذَا الَّذِیْ كُنْتُمْ بِهٖ تَدَّعُوْنَ

Which means, “But when they see it approaching the faces of those who disbelieve will be distressed, and it will be said, That is that for which you used to call.” What is the meaning and what is the deep meaning of this ayah? When these disbelievers, non-Muslims, when those who are denying Allah Almighty and the signs of Allah Almighty and the day of judgment and the day of resurrection and the day of accountability. They will see it on the day of judgment, because Allah Almighty will resurrect everyone right, from the time of Prophet Adam علیہ السلام, all the way until the day of judgment, you know in between there are many millions and trillions and, how many you know, you cannot even.

Imagine the numbers zillions, trillions of people all these people after they are dead Allah Almighty will resurrect them and of course, when they are dead, this is also extracted from the Quran. Where Allah (SWT) says,

“Every single creation of Allah Almighty on the face of this earth will die, and only and only what will remain is Allah’s face.” Which means Allah Almighty will be only and only the living and everything is dead. On that day Allah Almighty will command everyone to resurrect and also, it’s says that they will come out from the earth. As a plant coming from the earth or from the floor, they will come back and then these non-believers, dis-believers, this is what will happened to them فَلَمَّا رَاَوْهُ they will see the day of judgment, they will see the angles, they will see the punishment, they will see the Jannah, the paradise, they will see everything, زُلْفَةً سِیْٓــٴَـتْ, when they are seeing everything is approaching to them, سِیْٓــٴَـتْ وُجُوْهُ الَّذِیْنَ كَفَرُوْا, the faces of the dis-believers will become distressed.

It will become completely black, they have no hope nothing, it’s completely out of question, they will not have anything to say, they are completely distressed, they are completely disappointed, their faces completely black and they have nothing to say and Allah (SWT) said, وَ قِیْلَ, and they will be told, هٰذَا الَّذِیْ, that this is what you are calling for basically, they are not calling it for, but Allah Almighty now mocking on them. Saying that, you know it other way around, because they used to deny it, Allah Almighty saying now, “Yeah, this is it, this is what you are calling for right, here you see in front of you”.

So, this is the meaning of verse No. 27, in easy and most beloved way. I hop that you understand. So, let’s move to verse No. 28, where Allah Almighty said;

(۲۸) قُلْ اَرَءَیْتُمْ اِنْ اَهْلَكَنِیَ اللّٰهُ وَ مَنْ مَّعِیَ اَوْ رَحِمَنَا فَمَنْ یُّجِیْرُالْكٰفِرِیْنَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ اَلِیْمٍ

Which means, “Say, ‘O Muhammad’, Have you considered: whether Allah should cause my death and those with me or have mercy upon us, who can protect the disbelievers from a painful punishment?”

So, imagine now Allah Almighty again telling them through Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to these people to these disbelievers, اَرَءَیْتُمْ اِنْ اَهْلَكَنِیَ اللّٰهُ وَ مَنْ مَّعِیَ, that, If Allah Almighty will completely cause us the death. Will make the death come to us, اَوْ رَحِمَنَا, or he have mercy on us, فَمَنْ یُّجِیْرُالْكٰفِرِیْنَ, who will really pull the non-believers from, مِنْ عَذَابٍ اَلِیْمٍ, that, who will really will save the disbelievers means you have to listen to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, you have to take the guidance and the teaching of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Because, once you are away from Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, and you will die upon your disbelief. Then, it’s a serious issue and the same thing will happen and apply at this time.

If people knowing, whose Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, reading this biography, reading why he came? Allah Almighty send him to this world and etc. He is only and only sent as a mercy to the human being, he sent as a mercy to the world, he sent as a mercy to everything, including human, animal, birds all the creation of Allah Almighty and, then again you are denying him, again you don’t want to follow his teachings, again you don’t want to follow his footsteps and you are denying him, and you’re denying Allah Almighty, the creator, the lord of the universe. So, if you really deny all these peoples.

Allah Almighty says,

فَمَنْ یُّجِیْرُالْكٰفِرِیْنَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ اَلِیْمٍ


Who will protect the disbelievers from a severe punishment. “No one” because, you are denying Allah (SWT), It is very simple my brothers and sisters, we just have to open our eyes and our heart to the truth. We cannot be just, you know hide ourselves, whenever there’s a truth, when can we cannot just, you know turn our back, when we will see there is a truth just keep being like this, “Until what time?” until you die and you meet Allah Almighty on the day of judgment with nothing, you didn’t accept anything, any truth. It’s really a horrible condition that people will meet Allah Almighty and they don’t accept the truth. But still we have a lot’s of things and information to say and share with you, Inshallah.
