Quran 50 Verse 21 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Qaf ayat 21, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(50:21) Everyone has come, each attended by one who will drive him on, and another who will bear witness.
25. Most probably this implies the same two angels who had been appointed for compiling the record of the words and deeds of the person in the world. On the Day of Resurrection, when every man will rise from his grave on the sounding of the Trumpet, the two angels will come forth immediately and take him into their custody. One of them will drive him to the divine court and the other will be carrying his record.
