Sura Al-Jathiyah (45) 10/07/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 45 (Al-Jathiyah)

The attitude of the rejecters and their ultimate destination

Verses 7-9

“Woe to each sinful dealer in Falsehoods, He hears the Signs of Allah rehearsed to him, yet is obstinate and lofty, as if he had not heard them: then announce to him a Penalty Grievous. And when he learns something of Our Signs, he takes them in jest: for such there will be a humiliating Penalty”

Whilst the previous verses clearly show the various signs confirming that Allah SWT is the Master and Controller of everything that makes human life possible and sustainable, verses 7-9 address the attitude of the rejecters. Allah SWT exposes the reasons for their rejection, being kibr or arrogance, and informs us of their ultimate destination if they persist in their rejection of His message. The arrogance here is a refusal by the rejecters to become obedient to Allah’s laws and directives and the result thereof is Hell fire. We ask Allah SWT to save us from kibr (arrogance) such that when we are presented with His directives and laws, we become submissive and obedient to it.
