Here, Allah swt mentions the punishment of the disbelievers and the reward of the righteous believers, after describing the Kufr(not believing Allah, and rejecting the message of truth) and Shirk (Seting partner with Allah) that the disbelievers indulge in,
(For them is a torment in the life of this world,) by the hands of the believers, killing and capturing them,
(and certainly, the torment of the Hereafter.) which will come after they suffer humiliation in this life, (is harder) many times harder.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to those who agreed to Mula`anah,
(Surely, the torment of this life, is easier than the torment of the Hereafter.) Indeed, and just as the Messenger of Allah stated, the torment of this life ends but the torment of the Hereafter is everlasting in a Fire that is seventy times hot than our fire, where there are chains whose thickness and hardness are unimaginable. Allah said in other Verse,
(So on that Day none will punish as He will punish. And none will bind as He will bind.)﴿[The Holy Quran, 89:25-26] Read the rest of this entry
