Quran 36 Verse 19 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Yaseen ayat 19, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(36:19) The Messengers replied: “Your evil omen is with you.[15] (Are you saying this) because you were asked to take heed? The truth is that you are a people who have exceeded all bounds.”[16]


15. That is, no one is an evil omen for another. Everyman’s augury is hanging around his own neck. If a person sees an evil, it is because of his own self; and if he sees a good, it is also because of his own self. We have fastened the augury of every man to his own neck. (Surah Bani-Israil, Ayat 13).

16. That is, you in fact want to avoid the good and you like the deviation instead of the guidance. Therefore, instead of determining the truth and falsehood by means of an argument, you are making these false pretenses on account of your superstitious whims.
