Quran 62 Verse 7 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Jumu’ah ayat 7, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(62:7) But they shall never wish for death because of the (evil) deeds they have committed.[13] Allah is well aware of these evil-doers.


13. In other words, their flight from death is not without a reason. Whatever they may say, their conscience is fully aware of how they are behaving towards Allah and His religion and what consequences can be expected of the misdeeds they are committing in the world. That is why they are afraid to appear at the court of God.
