Quran 30 Verse 16 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ar-Rum ayat 16, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(30:16) As for those who disbelieved[21] and gave the lie to Our Signs and to the encounter of the Hereafter, they will be arraigned for chastisement.


21. One thing here is noteworthy. Good works have been mentioned as a necessary adjunct of the faith, which will earn one the blissful Garden. But no mention has been made of the evil acts while mentioning the evil end of disbelief. This clearly indicates that disbelief by itself is enough to mar the destiny of a person, whether it is accompanied by the evil act or not.
