Quran 23 Verse 74 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Mu’minun ayat 74, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(23:74) but those who do not believe in the Hereafter are ever prone to deviate from the Right Way.[71]


71. This was the real reason why they were deviating from the right path. As they did not believe in the Hereafter, they thought that no account would be taken from them of what they did in this world. Therefore it did not matter whether they followed the truth or falsehood. Their only aim in life was to gratify the lusts of the flesh and gratify them in the best way possible.
