Memorize Surah al-Mulk Ramadan 2021 | Verse 27

Published

Āyah 27

فَلَمَّا رَأَوۡهُ زُلۡفَةࣰ سِیۤـَٔتۡ وُجُوهُ ٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوا۟ وَقِیلَ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِی كُنتُم بِهِۦ تَدَّعُونَ

But when they actually see it up close and approaching, the faces of those who disbelieved be grieved, pained, troubled. And it will be said to them, “This is exactly what you were hoping and asking for!”

 

They denied God’s Signs and Favors. They mockingly asked when is this “punishment”? Now they see it, and Allāh ﷻ describes what will happen. — Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) mentions it in the past tense ➝ it is so matter of fact and predictable that God says it like it already happened.

Fast forward and now the disbelievers are seeing the very thing they asked to befall them. They see it before them. It’s right there, near, approaching. There’s no escape. It wasn’t a lie, or a hoax, or a joke. It’s here and it’s for real. And at that sight, they realize that they have no chance. Everything else they were told about: deeds, belief, heaven and hell, punishment, scales — it’s all real.

They cannot help but immediately change moods. The pain, sorrow, torment, trouble, darkness, gloom clouds over their faces. There is nothing but ruin and worry in their eyes. They’re done for and they know it.

 

And now it’s time for them to be mocked. They were the mockers in this world. Now they get a taste of their own medicine. But not just a taste, but magnitudes more. “Isn’t this what you were asking for?” It’s as if, when God, or the Angels, or the Prophets, when they see the faces of the disbelievers, they mock them saying “Wait, why do you look sad? You asked for this!”

 

Let us never doubt what God has told us is bound to occur.

 

فَلَمَّا رَأَوۡهُ زُلۡفَةࣰ

  • When they actually saw it
  • Saw the punishment, the Day of Judgement
  • Up close, right there, near, close, approaching, immediately before them

سِیۤـَٔتۡ وُجُوهُ ٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوا۟

  • The faces of those who disbelieved
    • Everyone God has been just telling us about
  • Their faces will sīʾa
    • Be afflicted, pained, sorry, tormented, troubled, darkened, gloomy
    • Ruined, worries
  • The face you make when you thought something bad wasn’t going to happen
    • But it did happen right before your eyes

وَقِیلَ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِی كُنتُم بِهِۦ تَدَّعُونَ

  • It’s said to them: God, Angels, Believers
  • This right here, this punishment, this Day of Judgement
  • Isn’t this exactly what you kept wanting, asking for, making “duʿāʾ” for?
    • Saying “when is it?” or “bring it on” or “hurry up with the punishment!”

 

Takeaways:

  • Never doubt God’s promises and warnings
  • Never ask for or impose bad things on yourself
