Quran 50 Verse 42 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Qaf ayat 42, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(50:42) the Day when they shall hear the Blast in truth. That will be the Day (for the dead) to come forth.[53]


53. The words yasmaun-as-saihata bil haqqi can have two meanings:

(1) That all the people will be hearing the cry of the right command.

(2) That they will be hearing the cry rightly.

In the first case the sentence will mean that the people will be hearing the same right command with their ears, which they were not inclined to accept in the world, which they had persistently refused to believe, and mocked the Prophets who had brought it. In the second case it will mean that they will certainly hear this cry, and they will realize that it is no fancy but indeed the cry of Resurrection; they will be left with no doubt that the Day of Resurrection of which they had been forewarned had arrived and the cry that was being raised was of the same.
