Fear of the Punishment of Allah, Sublime and Magnificent

 I take refuge with Allaah from the accursed devil.  

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

  Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.  

 Welcome to my blog and praise the Magnificent Lord as you enter: Allahu Akbar: Allah is the Greatest .

May the Peace and Blessing of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

Fear of the Punishment of Allah, Sublime and Magnificent.

قُلْ يعِبَادِ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمْ لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُواْ فِى هَـذِهِ الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةٌ وَأَرْضُ اللَّهِ وَاسِعَةٌ إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّـبِرُونَ أَجْرَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

(10. Say: “O My servants who believe, have Taqwa of your Lord. Good is for those who do good in this world, and Allah’s earth is spacious! Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning.”)

قُلْ إِنِّى أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ مُخْلِصاً لَّهُ الدِّينَ

(11. Say: “Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah, making religion sincerely for Him.”)

وَأُمِرْتُ لاًّنْ أَكُونَ أَوَّلَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

(12. “And I am commanded (this) in order that I may be the first of the Muslims.”)

Surah 39 Az Zumar Verse 10-12

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allah commands His believing servants to remain steadfast in their obedience and have Taqwa of Him.

(Say: “O My servants who believe, have Taqwa of your Lord. Good is for those who do good in this world…”) means, the one who does good deeds in this world, will have a good (reward) in this world and in the Hereafter.

(and Allah’s earth is spacious!) Mujahid said, “So emigrate through it and strive hard and keep away from idols.”

(Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning.) Al-`Awza`i said, “Their reward will not be weighed or measured; they will be given an immense reward.” As-Suddi said:

(Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning.) means, “In Paradise.”

(Say: “Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah, making religion sincerely for Him…”) means, `I am commanded to worship Allah alone in all sincerity, with no partner or associate.’

(And I am commanded (this) in order that I may be the first of the Muslims.)

قُلْ إِنِّى أَخَافُ إِنْ عَصَيْتُ رَبِّى عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ

(13. Say: “Verily, if I disobey my Lord, I am afraid of the torment of a great Day.”)

 قُلِ اللَّهَ أَعْبُدُ مُخْلِصاً لَّهُ دِينِى

(14. Say: “Allah Alone I worship by doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only.”)

فَاعْبُدُواْ مَا شِئْتُمْ مِّن دُونِهِ قُلْ إِنَّ الْخَـسِرِينَ الَّذِينَ خَسِرُواْ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَهْلِيهِمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَـمَةِ أَلاَ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

    (15. “So, worship what you like besides Him.” Say: “The losers are those who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, that will be a manifest loss!”)

لَهُمْ مِّن فَوْقِهِمْ ظُلَلٌ مِّنَ النَّارِ وَمِن تَحْتِهِمْ ظُلَلٌ ذَلِكَ يُخَوِّفُ اللَّهُ بِهِ عِبَادَهُ يعِبَادِ فَاتَّقُونِ

 (16. They shall have coverings of Fire, above them and covering (of Fire) beneath them. With this Allah frightens His servants: “O My servants, therefore have Taqwa of Me!”)

Surah 39 Az Zumar Verse 13-16

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allah `says, say O Muhammad, even though you are the Messenger of Allah:’

(Verily, if I disobey my Lord, I am afraid of the torment of a great Day.) meaning the Day of Resurrection. This is a conditional sentence, and if what is referred to here applies to the Prophet , it applies even more so to others,

  (Say: “Allah Alone I worship by doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only. So, worship what you like besides Him.”) This is also a threat, and a disowning of them.

(Say: “The losers…”) means, the greatest losers of all,

(are those who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection.) means, they will be separated and will never meet again, whether their families have gone to Paradise and they have gone to Hell, or all of them have gone to Hell, they will never meet or feel happiness again.

  (Verily, that will be a manifest loss!) means, this is the clearest and most obvious loss. Then He describes their state in the Fire:

(They shall have coverings of Fire, above them and covering (of Fire) beneath them.) This is like the Ayat:

(Theirs will be a bed of Hell (Fire), and over them coverings (of Hell-fire). Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers) (7:41)

(On the Day when the torment (Hell-fire) shall cover them from above them and from underneath their feet, and it will be said: “Taste what you used to do.”) (29:55)

(With this Allah frightens His servants:) means, Allah tells us about this, which will undoubtedly come to pass, to frighten His servants, so that they will keep away from unlawful things and from sin.

(O My servants, therefore have Taqwa of Me!) means, `fear My wrath, My anger, My punishment and My vengeance.’
