Ala-Maududi

(37:22) (Then will the command be given): “Muster all the wrong-doers[14] and their spouses[15] and the deities whom they used to serve


14. “The unjust people” does not only imply those who committed injustices in the world, but as a Quranic term zalamo implies to every such person, who might have adopted the way of rebellion and disobedience against Allah.

15. The word “azwaj” in the original text might also imply their wives, who were their associates in this rebellion, and also all those people who were rebellious and disobedient like them. Moreover it may also mean that the culprits of different categories will be gathered together in separate groups.
