Quran 27 Verse 5 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah An-Naml ayat 5, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(27:5) It is they for whom a grievous chastisement lies in store;[6] it is they who shall be the greatest losers in the Hereafter.


6. Nothing definite has been said about the form, time and place of this “worst of punishment.” For it is imposed in this world also on different persons and groups and nations in countless different ways; a part of it is also experienced by the wicked when they are about to leave the world; man experiences it also in the intermediary state between death and resurrection; and then after resurrection it will become endless and everlasting.
