Quran 30 Verse 57 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ar-Rum ayat 57, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(30:57) So that will be the Day when the excuses of the wrong-doers will not avail them, nor will they be asked to make amends.[83]


83. Another translation can be: “nor it will be required of them to please their Lord”, because they will have lost all opportunity for recourse to repentance and faith and righteous acts, and wasted the time allotted for the test and reached the eve of the announcement of the result.
