Quran 80 Verse 22 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Abasa ayat 22, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(80:22) and then, whenever He wishes, He will raise him back to life.[15]


15. That is, he does not either have the power to refuse to rise up when the Creator may will to resurrect him after death. When he was first created, he was not consulted: he was not asked whether he wanted to be created or not. Even if he had refused, he would have been created. Likewise, his resurrection is also not dependent upon his will and assent that he may rise from death if he so likes, or refuse to rise if he does not like. In this matter, he is also absolutely helpless before the Creator’s will. Whenever He wills, He will resurrect him, and he will have to rise whether he likes it or not.
