Quran 76 Verse 27 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Insan ayat 27, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.


(76:27) Verily they love (the good of this world) that is hastily obtainable and are oblivious of the burdensome Day ahead of them.[31]

31. That is, the reason why the disbelieving Quraish still persist in the errors and deviations of belief and morality and why they turn a deaf ear to your invitation to the truth is, in fact, their worship of the world and their heedlessness of the Hereafter. Therefore, the way being followed by a true God-worshipper is so different from and opposed to their way that there can be no question of any compromise between them.
