Quran 54 Verse 14 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Qamar ayat 14, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(54:14) which sailed on under Our supervision: a reward for him who had been shown ingratitude.[13]


13. Literally: This was a vengeance for the sake of him whose kufr had been committed. If kufr be taken in the sense of denial, it would mean: Whose message had been denied and rejected; and if it is taken in the meaning of ingratitude for a blessing, it would mean: Who was indeed a blessing for the people, but had been ungratefully rejected.
