Lesson # 402
They will taste severe punishment who disbelieved
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 106 of 200, Section – 11 of 20, (Part – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
106. On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieved ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved.
106. Yawma tab-yazzu wujuu-hunw-wa taswaddu wujuuh, fa-‘ammallazii-naswaddat wu-juu-huhum ‘akafartum- ba’-da ‘iimaanikum fazuuqul-‘azaaba bimaa kuntum takfuruun.
It has been described earlier that the deeds of human being are not wasted. Their appearance remains permanent. Those are reckoned by God Almighty. The faces of the people will disclose their deeds on the Day of Judgment. The persons who would have passed their lives with good deeds, the Light of Belief and God fearing will be shining on their faces. Their faces will become white. They will be in much respect and dignity, and seen very pleasure. Contrary to them, those people who remained involved in evils, errors and sins throughout their lives in this world, led in evil-working and black deeds, at that time, their faces will become black with blackness of their infidelity, immorality, adulteration and hypocrisy. As though, the face of every person will become mirror of his/her inside.
Allah Almighty will ask every disbeliever, Hypocrite and Renegade, “Did you adopt Infidelity after believing? Why did you choose infidelity in spite of Faith”? Those people would not have any answer to this question. Their heads will bow down due to shame and repentance. They will fall in the abyss of disgrace and infamy, and they will be caused to hear the command of punishment. In retaliation of their infidelity, they will fall in the severe wrath and enter into the Fire of Hell, where they will remain and rot forever.
It is the condition of the Hereafter, where every human being would have to clear the accounts of his/her entire life of this world, where he/she will get permanent either reward or punishment. But every individual would have to face the results of his/her deeds, which were performed or committed in this world too. Moreover, their faces would be mirrors of their lives. If any person commits evil, then the evils begin to show themselves on his/her face. The tokens of humiliation and bashfulness appear. On the contrary, as the result of goodness, one gets fame and glory. The people calling out aloud say, “he/she is of the Paradise, the Light rains on his/her face, the illumination glitters from one’s eyes”. His/her forehead becomes glorious.
