Quran 54 Verse 6 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Qamar ayat 6, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(54:6) So turn away from them, (O Prophet). On the Day when a caller shall call them to a thing most terrible,
5. In other words, leave them to themselves. When every effort has been made to make them understand the truth in the most rational ways, when instances have been cited from history to show them the evil results of the denial of the Hereafter, when the dreadful fates suffered by the other nations in consequence of their rejecting the Prophetic messages have been brought to their notice and yet they are disinclined to give up their stubbornness, they should be left alone to gloat over their follies. Now, they would believe only when after death they arise from their graves to see with their own eyes that the Resurrection of which they were being forewarned and exhorted to adopt the truth, had actually taken place.
6. Another meaning can be “an unknown thing”, a thing which they never could imagine, of which they never had any concept and no idea whatever that it also could occur.
6. So withdraw from them. The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing. 7. They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad, 8. Hastening towards the caller. The disbelievers will say: “This is a hard Day.”
Allah the Exalted says, `O Muhammad, turn away from these people who, when they witness a miracle, they deny it and say that this is continuous magic.’ Turn away from them and wait until,
(The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing.) to the Recompense and the afflictions, horrors and tremendous hardships that it brings forth,
(with humbled eyes), their eyes will be covered with disgrace,
(they will come forth from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad.) They will gather towards the area of Reckoning in such haste and crowds, in response to the caller, as if they were crowds of locusts spreading all about. Allah said,
(Hastening) meaing hurriedly,
(towards the caller.) without being able to hesitate or slow down,
(The disbelievers will say: “This is a hard Day.”), meaing, `this is a hard, terrible, horrifying and distressful Day,’
(Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day — far from easy for the dis- believers.) (74:9-10)
