Quran 45 Verse 9 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Jathiya ayat 9, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(45:9) Whenever he comes to know anything of Our Signs, he makes them an object of jest.[10] For such there awaits a humiliating chastisement.


10. That is, he does not rest content with mocking any one particular revelation, but mocks all the revelations. For example, when he hears that a particular thing has been mentioned in the Quran, he does not take it in its straightforward meaning, but first puts a crooked meaning on it in order to make it a subject of ridicule and mockery, then after making fun of it, says: These are strange things: one daily hears one or the other funny thing from them.
