|Allaah says in the first verse of the para, “Who can be more unjust than him who lies about Allaah, and falsifies the truth when it comes to him? Is there no abode for the disbelievers in Jahannam? The one who brings the truth and confirms it, these are the people who are abstinent.” [verses 32/3 of Surah Zumar]Allaah promises that He will assist Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) when He declares in verse 36, “Is Allaah not Sufficient for His bondsman?” Allaah also addresses Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) saying, “Without doubt, We have revealed to you a Book with the truth for the people. Whoever is rightly guided, is guided for his benefit, and whomsoever is misguided, then it is to his own detriment. You have not been sent as a warder over them (and therefore cannot be held responsible for their deeds).” [verse 41]Allaah emphasises that sustenance proceeds only from Him and that the kuffaar always have a chance to be forgiven if they repent to Allaah sincerely.
Surah Mu’min commences after Surah Zumar. Allaah declares therein, “This Book is revealed from Allaah, the Mighty, the All Knowing, the Forgiver of sins, Acceptor of repentance, Stern in punishment, and All Powerful. There is none worthy of worship besides Him, and all shall return to Him.” [verses 2 and 3]
In verse 4 Allaah addresses Rasululllaah (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) as well as the Mu’mineen when He says, “It is only the disbelievers who argue about Allaah’s verses, so let not their travelling about through the lands (and their apparent might) deceive you (because Allaah will soon seize them and they are destined to be fuel for Jahannam).”
