Quran 22 Verse 6 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Hajj ayat 6, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(22:6) All this is because Allah, He is the Truth,[8] and because He resurrects the dead, and because He has power over everything,


8. The Arabic text may mean three things: (1) Allah is telling the truth and you are wrong in presuming that there is no possibility of life-after-death. (2) Allah’s existence is not merely a supposition but it is a reality. He is not only the first cause but has supreme authority, and is conducting every affair in the universe according to His Will, Knowledge and Wisdom. (3) All His designs and works are based on truth and are, therefore, serious, meaningful and full of wisdom.
