Quran 25 Verse 38 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Furqan ayat 38, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(25:38) And in like manner were the ‘Ad and the Thamud destroyed and the people of al-Rass[52] and many a nation in the centuries in between.


52. There is no definite knowledge about the people of the Raas. Different commentators have said different things about them, but nothing is convincing. The only thing that may be said about them is that they were a people who had killed their Prophet by throwing him into or hanging him down a Rass (an old or dry well).
