Sura Ar-Rahman (55) 22/09/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura Ar-Rahman (55)

Sinners will be known by their marks

Verses 37-44

“When the sky is rent asunder, and it becomes red like ointment, ….. On that Day no question will be asked of man or Jinn as to his sin…. For the sinners will be known by their marks: and they will be seized by their forelocks and their feet ….. This is the Hell which the Sinners deny”

After describing to us His favours and the perfect harmony in nature, Allah SWT reminds us that all this will come to an end, the earth will be destroyed and the accountability will start. This is the main thrust of the Sura and that is to bring us to a realization that we will stand before Allah swt to account for our actions. Verse 41 explains that the the sinners will known by their “marks” meaning that they will be known by their sinful characters. By seizing their forelocks and feet tells us of the utter humiliation of the sinners.

May Allah keep us from being in the category of the sinful and those who are ungrateful for Allah’s favours.
