Quran 16 Verse 27 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Nahl ayat 27, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(16:27) And again, on the Day of Resurrection, He will bring them to disgrace, and say: “Tell Me, now, where are those to whom you ascribed a share in My Divinity, and for whose sake you disputed (with the upholders of the Truth)?” Those[23] who were endowed with knowledge (in the world) will say: “Surely today humiliation and misery shall be the lot of the unbelievers”;


23. There is a gap between this answer and the preceding question which has been left for the reader to fill. When Allah will ask: Now where are My partners, there will be dead silence in the plain where the entire mankind shall have to gather on the occasion of Resurrection. The disbelievers and the mushriks will be dumb founded for they will be at a loss to find an answer to this. Then those who had been given knowledge will make the assertion, “Indeed, disgrace, this day, and evil are upon the disbelievers.”
