Quran 19 Verse 44 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Maryam ayat 44, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(19:44) Father, do not serve Satan,[27] for Satan has indeed been a persistent rebel against the Most Compassionate Lord.


27. It should be noted that the literal translation of the Arabic text is: “Do not worship Satan”, though Abraham’s father and the other people did not worship Satan in the same sense as they worshiped idols. But as they followed and obeyed Satan, he accused them of worshiping Satan. Thus it is clear that if somebody follows and obeys Satan, he virtually worships him. For Satan has never been a deity in the sense that people have made him an object of worship; nay, they have always been cursing him and following him at the same time. (For further details see (Surah Al-Kahf E.Ns 49-50).

27a. For explanation, see (Surah At-Taubah E.N. 112).
