(And We have put a barrier before them,) Mujahid said, “Between them and the truth.”, (and a barrier behind them,) Mujahid said, “Between them and the truth, so they are confused.” Qatadah said, “They move from one form of misguidance to another.”, (and We have covered them up,) means, `We have blinded their eyes to the truth.’. Surah Al Qalam 69. They said, “You are not but human beings like us, and the Most Merciful has not revealed a thing. (It is not for the sun to overtake the moon,) Mujahid said, “Each of them has a limit which it does not transgress or fall short of. (“There is nothing but our life of this world! Surah An Nahl 17. If one wants to light a fire but has no kindling with him, then he takes two green branches from these trees and rubs one against the other, and fire is produced from them. When We sent to them two but they denied them, so We strengthened them with a third, and they said, “Indeed, we are messengers to you.”, قَالُوا۟ مَآ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا بَشَرٌۭ مِّثْلُنَا وَمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنُ مِن شَىْءٍ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا تَكْذِبُونَ, Qaaloo maaa antum illaa basharum mislunaa wa maaa anzalar Rahmaanu min shai’in in antum illaa takziboon15. They said, “Our Lord knows that we are messengers to you, وَمَا عَلَيْنَآ إِلَّا ٱلْبَلَـٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ, Wa maa ‘alainaaa illal balaaghul mubeen17. meaning, `do you not learn a lesson from those whom Allah destroyed before you of those who disbelieved in the Messengers They came to this world only once, and will not return to it.’ It is not as many of those ignorant and immoral people claim that. Verily, their evil omens are with Allah) (7:131). Allah tells us how the disbelievers thought that the Day of Resurrection would never come to pass, as they said: (Those who believe not therein seek to hasten it) (42:18). وَخَلَقْنَا لَهُم مِّن مِّثْلِهِۦ مَا يَرْكَبُونَ. Surah Ta-Ha 21. This was recorded by Ibn Abi Hatim. So they are submissive towards them and do not resist them; even if a young child comes to a camel he can make it kneel down, and if he wants to, he can make it stand up and can drive it, and it will meekly be led by him. Qatadah said: (but they will be brought forward as a troop.) Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Al-`As bin Wa’il took a bone from the bed of a valley and crumbled it in his hand, then he said to the Messenger of Allah : `Will Allah bring this back to life after it has disintegrated’ The Messenger of Allah said: (Yes, Allah will cause you to die, then He will bring you back to life, then He will make you enter Hell.) ... Yasin..1: By the wise Quran..2: No doubt, you..3: Have been sent on straight path..4: Sent down by the Dignified, the Merciful..5: So that you may warn a people whose fathers were not warned so they are unaware..6: Ibn Hibban recorded in his Sahih that Jundub bin `Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “The Messenger of Allah said: (Whoever recites Ya Sin in the night, seeking the Face of Allah, will be forgiven.). إِن كَانَتْ إِلَّا صَيْحَةًۭ وَٰحِدَةًۭ فَإِذَا هُمْ خَـٰمِدُونَ. You are only telling lies.” The Messengers said: “Our Lord knows that we have been sent as Messengers to you.”) This means that the three Messengers answered them saying: “Allah knows that we are His Messengers to you. means, “Alas for mankind, who have neglected the command of Allah.” The meaning is that they will feel regret and sorrow on the Day of Resurrection. This is like the Ayat: (But it will be only a single Zajrah, when behold, they find themselves (on the surface of the earth) alive (after their death).) This was the view of Ibn `Abbas, `Ikrimah, Ad-Dahhak, Al-Hasan, Qatadah and `Ata’ Al-Khurasani. The term Surah was used at the time of Muhammad (Saw). He has appointed the night for resting, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. Surah An Nasr 111. Surah Hashr 60. Wa zallalnaahaa lahum faminhaa rakoobuhum wa minhaa yaakuloon72.
