"AL-Eti'daal" Weekly Article-Issue 18
08 Jamadul Ukhra 1434/ 20 April 2013


Please understand this very well: the real place for the punishment of the non-believers is the Hereafter. Sometimes, however, for the sake of expedience, it is also meted out to them in this world. Whatever good works and position they have, are solely as a result of the returns given to them by the Lord of this World, the Most Just King.

However, this too is given to them in this world and in the Hereafter there is nothing for them. This is only right because seeing that they do not have faith in the Hereafter way should they be rewarded there? And it is only right that through their denial of the Hereafter they should be punished there.

Allah says: “And unto them is said: "Taste the chastisement of the fire which you used to deny. “(32. 20)

This same type of statement appears in the Quran on numerous occasions. For example: “And on the Day when those who disbelieved shall be exposed to the fire, (to hem shall be said): "You have  (already) attained your good things of your worldly We and have enjoyed them. And this Day you shall be granted the punishment of those joys, for your having been arrogant without right and for your immoral behaviour and iniquity." (46. 20)

And now I want to draw your attention to a few verses of the Quran.

1. “These are the people who buy the life of this world at the price of the hereafter. Their penalty shall not be lightened... Nor shall they be helped.” (2.86)

2. "And from amongst men there are those who say: “Our Lord, give us the bounties of this world. But they will have no portion in the Hereafter”. (2.200)

3. “The life of this world is alluring to those who reject faith, and they scoff at those who believe. But the righteous will be above them on the Day of Resurrection; for Allah bestows His abundance without measure on whom He wills”. (2. 212)

It has been reported in one Hadeeth: “Allah Ta'ala grants the material world to that person whom He loves, and to whomsoever He does not love. While Deen is granted only to that person whom He loves. That person who has been endowed with Deen is the beloved of Allah.”

4. “What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the home in the Hereafter for those who are righteous will ye not then understand.” (6.32)

5. “Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement and are deceived by the life of this world."

6. “Ye desire the temporal goods of this world; But Allah desires (for ye) the Hereafter.” (8.67)

7. “Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life as compared to the Hereafter.” (9.38)

8. “Those who desire the life of the present and its glitter -to them We shall pay (the price of) their deeds therein without dimunition. They are those for whom there is nothing in the Hereafter but the fire: Vain are the designs they frame therein. And of no effect are the deeds that they do.” (11.15-16)

9. “Allah doth enlarge or grant by strict measure the sustenance which He giveth to whomsoever He pleases. The worldly rejoice in the life of this world but the life of this world is but little comfort in the Hereafter.” (13.26)

10. “Say: Short is the enjoyment of this world: The Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never will ye be dealth with unjustly in the very least.(4.77)

Al-Etidaal Fe Maraatibur-Rijaal” by Sheikh-ul-Hadith, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalwi R.A, Page 101-105 - Published by Darul Uloom Zakariyya.) To be continued Insha-Allah.


A (true) believer does not fear the death of his body but rather he fears the death of his heart! (Ibne Qayyim R.A)

I marvel at the forgiveness of Allah. He pardons us despite knowing very well that we will sin again in the future.
