Quran 11 Verse 19 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Hud ayat 19, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(11:19) upon those[22] who bar people from the way of Allah, and seek in it crookedness,[23] and disbelieve in the Hereafter.


22. This is a parenthetical statement. That is, that God’s curse will be proclaimed in the Hereafter against those who are guilty of the crimes mentioned.

23. Such persons do not like the straight way being expounded to them. They would rather have the straight way rendered crooked by altering it under the influence of lust, prejudice, fancy, and superstition. It is only after the way that was once straight has been rendered crooked that they will be willing to accept it.
