Quran 13 Verse 41 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ar-Ra’d ayat 41, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(13:41) Do they not see that We are advancing in the land, diminishing it by its borders on all sides?[60] Allah judges, and no one has the power to reverse His judgement. He is swift in reckoning.


60. “We are advancing in the land.” This is a very subtle way of warning the opponents of the truth. The fact that Our message is spreading fast in Arabia. It does, in fact, mean that We Ourselves are advancing very fast in the country against you for We are with those who are carrying Our message. “Diminishing it from its outlying borders.” We are causing the influence of Islam to spread fast in the land and are thus reducing the boundaries of the influence of its opponents. Are not these things the portents of their coming disaster?
