And in such [a manner], of being brought forth, you shall be brought forth, from the graves (read [either as] the active takhrujna, `you shall come forth', or the passive tukhrajna, `you shall be brought forth').

24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَيُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ

He brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living.

This is what we see of His power to create things and their opposites.

These Ayat which come one after the other are all of the same; in each of them Allah mentions the creation of things and their opposites, to indicate to His creation the perfection of His power. Thus He creates the plant from the seed and the seed from the plant; He creates the egg from the chicken and the chicken from the egg; He creates man from sperm and sperm from man; He creates the believer from the disbelievers and the disbeliever from the believers.

وَيُحْيِي الاَْرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا

And He revives the earth after its death.

This is like the Ayat;

وَءَايَةٌ لَّهُمُ الاٌّرْضُ الْمَيْتَةُ أَحْيَيْنَـهَا وَأَخْرَجْنَا مِنْهَا حَبّاً فَمِنْهُ يَأْكُلُونَ

And a sign for them is the dead land. We give it life, and We bring forth from it grains, so that they eat thereof. until;

وَفَجَّرْنَا فِيهَا مِنَ الْعُيُونِ

and We have caused springs of water to gush forth therein. (36;33-34)

وَتَرَى الاٌّرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَأءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنبَتَتْ مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ

And you see the earth barren, but when We send down water on it, it is stirred, and it swells and puts forth every lovely kind. until;

وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَبْعَثُ مَن فِى الْقُبُورِ

and certainly, Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves. (22;5-7)

وَهُوَ الَّذِى يُرْسِلُ الرِّيَاحَ بُشْرىً بَيْنَ يَدَىْ رَحْمَتِهِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَقَلَّتْ سَحَابًا ثِقَالاً

And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy. Till when they have carried a heavy-laden cloud, until;

لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ

so that you may remember or take heed. (7;57)

Allah says here;

وَكَذَلِكَ تُخْرَجُونَ



And thus shall you be brought out.
