Quran 69 Verse 12 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Haqqah ayat 12, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(69:12) so that We might make it an instructive event for you, and retentive ears might preserve its memory.[9]


9. The conscious ears: the ears which may hear it consciously and take it in. Although the word ear has been used, it implies the hearers who may hear the event and always remember it, take heed from it, and may never forget what dreadful fate the deniers of the Hereafter and the disbelievers of the Messenger of God would ultimately suffer.
