Quran 25 Verse 47 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Furqan ayat 47, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(25:47) It is Allah Who has made night a garment for you,[60] and sleep the repose (of death), and has made day the time of rising to life.61


60. The night is a garment in the sense that it covers and hides things.

61. This verse has three objects:

(1) It provides a proof of Tauhid.

(2) It furnishes a proof of the possibility of life-after-death from everyday human experience.

(3) It bears the good news that the night of ignorance has come to an end and now the bright day of knowledge and guidance has dawned. It is therefore inevitable that those who were sleeping in ignorance, will sooner or later wake up, but those who have slept the sleep of death, will not wake up and will themselves be deprived of life, while the business of the day will go on thriving even without them.
