Continuation of Chapter 38 Saad (سورة ص)
(Saad)



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
38:16
وَقَالُوا رَبَّنَا عَجِّلْ لَنَا قِطَّنَا قَبْلَ يَوْمِ الْحِسَابِ
They say: "Our Lord! Hasten to us our sentence (even) before the Day of Account!"
  • Cf. xxvi. 204 and n. 3230. Those who do not believe in the Hereafter say ironically: "Let us have our punishment and sentence now: why delay it?" The last verse and the next verse supply the commentary. As to those who mock, they will find out the truth soon enough, when it is too late for repentance or mercy. As to the prophets of Allah, who are mocked, they must wait patiently for Allah to fulfil His Plan: even men who had worldly strength and power, like David had to exercise infinite patience when mocked by their contemporaries.
