Ala-Maududi

(7:36) And those who reject Our revelations as false and turn away from them in arrogance, they shall be the inmates of Hell; and there shall they abide.[28]


28. Reference to the continuous unremitting punishment of the unbelievers occurs invariably on occasions where the Qur’an narrates the coming down of Adam and Eve from Paradise. See (al-Baqarah 2: 38-9 ); (Ta Ha 20: 123-4.) What has been said here should be considered in relation to the fact that at the very start of man’s earthly life he was informed of the evil results of unbelief. (See Towards Understanding the Qur’an, vol. 1, (AI ‘Imran 3: n.69, pp.268-9 – Ed.)
