Quran 60 Verse 6 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Mumtahanah ayat 6, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(60:6) Indeed there is a good example for you in them; a good example for anyone who looks forward to Allah and the Last Day.[9] As for him who turns away, Allah is All-Sufficient, Immensely Praiseworthy.[10]


9. Who is hopeful of Allah and the Last Day: Who expectsthat one Day he will have to present himself before Allahand is hopeful that Allah will treat him benevolently andhelp him attain to success in the Hereafter.

10. That is, Allah has no need of such believers, whoprofess to believe in His religion as well as maintainfriendly relations with His enemies. He is Self Sufficient:His Godhead does not require that they shouldacknowledge Him as God. He is Self-Praiseworthy, i.e. Hisbeing praiseworthy is not dependent on the people’spraising and glorifying Him. If they affirm the faith, theydo so not for any good of Allah, but for their own good.And they cannot gain anything from their affirmation ofthe faith until they break off all connections of love andfriendship with the enemies of Allah as the ProphetAbraham (peace be upon him) and his companions did.
