Quran 45 Verse 26 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Jathiya ayat 26, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(45:26) Tell them, (O Prophet): “It is Allah Who gives you life and then causes you to die,[37] and He it is Who will then bring all of you together on the Day of Resurrection, a Day regarding which there can be no doubt.[38] Yet most people do not know.[39]


37. This is the answer to their saying that death comes to man automatically in the course of time. It means: Neither you get life accidentally nor your death occurs automatically. It is God Who gives you life and it is He Who takes it away.

38. This is the answer to their demand: Bring back our forefathers if you are truthful. To this it has been said: This will not happen now separately for individuals, but a Day has been fixed for gathering all mankind together.

39. That is, it is lack of knowledge and right understanding which is the real cause of the people’s denying the Hereafter; otherwise it is not its coming but its not coming which is against reason. If a person reflects rightly on the system of the universe and on his own self, he will himself realize that there can be no doubt about the coming of the Hereafter.
