Quran 104 Verse 7 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Humazah ayat 7, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.


(104:7) the Fire that shall rise to the hearts (of criminals).[7]

7. Tattaliu is from ittalaa, which means to climb and mountto the top, and also to be aware and informed. Afidah isplural of fuwad, which means the heart. But this word isnot used for the organ which throbs in the breast, but forthe seat of man’s understanding and consciousness, hisfeelings and desires, beliefs and thoughts, motives andintentions, Thus, one meaning of the rising of the fire to thehearts is that this fire will reach the place which is thecentre of man’s evil thoughts, false beliefs, impure desiresand feelings, and wicked motives and intentions. Thesecond meaning is that the Fire of Allah will not be blindlike the fire of the world, which burns up the deserving andthe non-deserving alike, but it will reach the heart of everyculprit and discover the nature of his crime and thenpunish him according to his guilt.
