In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
39:60
On the Day of Judgement wilt thou see those who told lies against Allah; their faces will be turned black; is there not in Hell an abode for the Haughty?
  • As spotless white is the symbol of purity, honour and truth, so black is the symbol of evil, disgrace, and falsehood. Perhaps "black" in connection with Hell also refers to the scorching punishment of the Fire.
  • Cf. above, xxxix. 32, and n. 4292, where the subtle implication of the interrogative form is explained
