Quran 4 Verse 76 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah An-Nisa ayat 76, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(4:76) Those who have faith fight in the way of Allah, while those who disbelieve fight in the way of taghut (Satan).[105] Fight, then, against the fellows of Satan. Surely Satan’s strategy is weak.[106]


105. This lays down a clear verdict of God. To fight in the cause of God in order that His religion be established on earth is the task of men of faith, and whoever truly believes can never shirk this duty. To fight in the cause of taghut (authority in defiance of God) in order that the world may be governed by rebels against God is the task of unbelievers in which no believer can engage himself.

106. Satan and his comrades-in-arms ostensibly undertake tremendous preparations and contrive all kinds of ingenious machinations. True men of faith, however, should not be intimidated either by such preparations or by machinations. For, no matter what they do, they are doomed to fail.
