Surah Mumin (40) 07/05/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 40 (Mumin)

Death bed repentance not accepted

Verses 84-85 “But when they saw Our Punishment, they said: “We believe in Allah,- the one God – and we reject the partners we used to join with Him. But their professing the Faith when they (actually) saw Our Punishment was not going to profit them. (Such has been) Allah’s Way of dealing with His servants (from the most ancient times). And even thus did the Rejecters of Allah perish (utterly)”

We see here Allah’s justice taking effect, He sends His messengers to warn people and gives them enough time to repent and amend their conduct. However, once their time expires they will have no further respite and the rejecters will be destroyed. Their accepting of Imaan upon seeing the punishment of Allah would not save them in the least. Let us turn to Allah SWT and lead our lives in accordance with His laws to the best of our abilities.

Cross reference: 4:17-18

And that concludes Sura Mumin, tomorrow we commence Sura Fussilat Insha Allah
