وَيۡلٌ۬ يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ۬ لِّلۡمُكَذِّبِينَ (Wailun yaumaidzin lil mukadzzibin)

When I was little and I used to read the stories of the prophets and also how they refuse to accept the message. How the story narrated their refusal to accept Allah as one God and that they one day will be raised again and will have to answer before the one god. Prophet after prophet coming with one main message, that there is no other god worthy to worship except Allah. Then i read about pagan quraysh who denied the message of rasulullah and remain steadfast on their believe in worshiping idols, I used to imagine pre civilisation days.

These stories, to me at my younger age, only happen in the days when there are no cars and no phones. Where people probably dance around fire and wear old fashion clothes and had to dig holes for their toilet. I use to imagine the stories of the past with people wearing old fashion clothes like the one they wear in the arab tele series that I always watch when i was a kid in Ramadhan. Where we label these people as jahiliyah. It does not happen to people who have technologies.

Only as i grow up, I realised that history repeats. Civilisation after civilisation. Technology improves but people's mindset and ideology are the same. In fact in many ways, the era we are now has much more tribulation than the jahiliyyah times. Those who deny also wears suit and can be exceptionally clever. Abu Jahal, for your information was also an exceptionally clever man in his time. They use to call him Abu Hakam.

At least (not defending them though), the Quraysh still believe in Allah that Allah is the one who creates, the one who gives rizq and the one who gives life and death. Except that they need an intermediary to make dua to Allah such that all worship instead of given to the Lord who Creates, is given to the idols who they create themselves.

Many a time we read, that the non believers in this time refused to accept that Allah has promised that they will be raised again to be questioned for all the things they deed when they are alive. They scoff at this idea, unable to believe how Allah can raise you when you have changed to dust and bones. Forgetting that Allah created them from nothing in the first place and everything is easy for Him.

Everything is created by chance and luck.
When we die, it will just be the end so no one can do anything to us even though we killed thousand of men in our lifetime. No one also will do anything to the one who oppress us and gangrape the women in our house. When the oppressors die, they escape everything.
All those written in religious scrolls and Books are fairy tales just like aesop's.
You are backward for believing in God.

Indeed the Believers are those who believe in Ghaib. May Allah guides those who are not.

Stephen Hawking: 'There is no heaven; it's a fairy story'"

Al Mutafiffin 10-17

Woe, that Day, to those who deny. (10)
Those who deny the Day of Recompense. (11)
And none can deny it except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and disobedience to Allâh), the sinner! (12)
When Our Verses (of the Qur'ân) are recited to him he says: "Tales of the ancients!" (13)
Nay! But on their hearts is the Rân (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn[] (14)
Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then, verily they will indeed enter (and taste) the burning flame of Hell. (16)
Then, it will be said to them: "This is what you used to deny!" (17)

subhanAllah... baru je dengar Br Nouman Khan's tafseer of this surah yesterday. beautiful indeed - Allahumma baarik. I feel the same when I watch TV or movies when they discuss the supposedly fairy-tale concepts of God, heaven + hell. like Umm Eesa once said, sometimes you feel like 'What's wrong with you? Why can't you see the truth?' + wanting to 'push' the guidance to them, but of course guidance is only in Allah's Hand + we only do our parts + may they be guided + may we be firm in the true path to Jannah.
