Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"Is it this discourse that you take lightly?..." 56:81
¨and take your denial as your livelihood?¨ [82]
¨So why (do you) not (interfere) when the soul (of a dying person) reaches the throat...¨ [83]
¨and you are watching?¨ [84]
¨And We are closer to him than you, but you do not perceive.¨ [85]
¨So, if you are not going to be recompensed (in the Hereafter for your deeds), then why do you not...¨ [86]
¨bring the soul back, if you are truthful?¨ [87]

COMMENTARY: The word ´Mudhinoon´ is the plural of ´Mudhin´, being the active participle from ´Idhaan´, which literally means 'to apply or rub oil on the body'. When oil is applied or rubbed on the body, the muscles are relaxed, and parts of the body become soft and supple. By extension, the word is employed in the sense of showing flexibility and softness on inappropriate occasions. Hence, it is used in the sense of hypocrisy. In the current verse the word is used in the sense of hypocrisy and rejection of Allah's verses carelessly.

The preceding verses prove two facts through rational arguments and by swearing an oath by the falling stars:

  1. That the Noble Quran is the word of Allah. Neither Jinn nor devil can ever tamper with it. Everything it contains is the truth; and
  2. One of the most fundamental articles of faith enshrined in the Qur'an is the Day of Resurrection and Reckoning. Towards the end of the passage, it is mentioned that the infidels and idolaters, in spite of clear arguments and evidence, reject life after death.

In short, it is not within people's power to get together and save a soul or life. Allah is nearer to a dying person than his soul or life. Allah has pre-designated a particular time for the soul to be separated from the body. None can avert it.

For even my gratitude is a bounty from You…
