006 - Soorah al-An'aam - (The Cattle) - [Makkee]
[006:091] They (the Jews, Quraish pagans, idolaters) did not estimate Allâh with an estimation due to Him when they said: "Nothing did Allâh send down to any human being (by Revelation)." Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "Who then sent down the Book which Mûsâ (Moses) brought, a light and a guidance to mankind which you (the Jews) have made into (separate) paper sheets, disclosing (some of it) and concealing (much). And you (believers in Allâh and His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) were taught (through the Qur'ân) that which neither you nor your fathers knew." Say: "Allâh (sent it down)." Then leave them to play in their vain discussions. (Tafsir Al-Qurtubî)
[006:092] And this (the Qur'ân) is a blessed Book which We have sent down, confirming (the Revelations) which came before it, so that you may warn the Mother of Towns (i.e. Makkah) and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it (the Qur'ân), and they are constant in guarding their Salât (prayers).
[006:093] And who can be more unjust than he who invents a lie against Allâh, or says: "A revelation has come to me" whereas no Revelation has come to him in anything; and who says, "I will reveal the like of what Allâh has revealed." And if you could but see when the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong doers) are in the agonies of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): "Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of degradation because of what you used to utter against Allâh other than the truth. And you used to reject His Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) with disrespect!"
[006:094] And truly, you have come to Us alone (without wealth, companions or anything else) as We created you the first time. You have left behind you all that which We had bestowed on you. We see not with you your intercessors whom you claimed to be partners with Allâh. Now all relations between you and them have been cut off, and all that you used to claim has vanished from you.
(V.6:93) A. What is said regarding the punishment in the grave. And the Statement of Allâh [Subhânahu wa Ta'âla]:
"If you could but see when the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong doers) are in the agonies of death while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): 'Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of degradation...' " (V.6:93)
And also the Statement of Allâh [Subhânahu wa Ta'âla]: "We shall punish them twice and thereafter, they shall be brought back to a great (horrible) torment." (V.9:101).
And also the Statement of Allâh [Subhânahu wa Ta'âla]:
"While an evil torment encompassed Fir'aun's (Pharaoh's) people; the Fire, they are exposed to it morning and afternoon. And on the Day when the Hour will be established (it will be said to the angels): 'Cause Fir'aun's people to enter the severest torment.' " (V.40:45,46).
Narrated Al-Barâ' bin 'Azib [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said,"When a faithful believer is made to sit in his grave, then (the angels) come to him and he testifies that Lâ ilâha illallâh wa Anna Muhammad-ur-Rasûl-Allâh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh and Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] is the Messenger of Allâh). And that corresponds to Allâh's Statement: 'Allâh will keep firm those who believe with the word that stands firm.' (V.14:27)." [Sahih Al-Bukhâri, 2/1369 (O.P.450)].
B. Narrated Anas [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their footsteps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask him: 'What did you use to say about this man, Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]?' He will say: 'I testify that he is Allâh's slave and His Messenger.' Then it will be said to him, 'Look at your place in the Hell-fire. Allâh has changed for you a place in Paradise instead of it."' The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] added, "The dead person will see both his places. But a disbeliever or a hypocrite will say to the angels, 'I do not know, but I used to say what the people used to say!' It will be said to him, 'Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by following the Qur'ân).' Then he will be hit with an iron hammer between his two ears, and he will cry and that cry will be heard by whatsoever near to him except human beings and jinn."
