Quran 29 Verse 68 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ankabut ayat 68, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(29:68) Who can be more unjust than he who foists a lie on Allah or gives the lie to the Truth after it has come to him?[106] Is Hell not the resort of the unbelievers?


106. That is, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) has made a claim to prophethood, and you have denied him. Now there can be only two alternatives: If the Prophet (peace be upon him) has made a false claim in the name of Allah, there can be no one more wicked than him, and if you have belied a true Prophet (peace be upon him), there can be no one more wicked than you.”
