24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Then, when the Naqur is sounded. Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day -- far from easy for the disbelievers.

Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid, Ash-Sha`bi, Zayd bin Aslam, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak, Ar-Rabi` bin Anas, As-Suddi and Ibn Zayd, all said,

Naqur,"It is the Trumpet."

Mujahid said, "It is in the shape of a horn."

Ibn Abi Hatim narrated that Abu Sa`id Al-Ashaj told them that Asbat bin Muhammad related to them from Mutarrif, from `Atiyah Al-`Awfi, from Ibn `Abbas,
فَإِذَا نُقِرَ فِي النَّاقُورِ
(Then, when the Trumpet is sounded), The Messenger of Allah said,

كَيْفَ أَنْعَمُ وَصَاحِبُ الْقَرْنِ قَدِ الْتَقَمَ الْقَرْنَ وَحَنَى جَبْهَتَهُ يَنْتَظِرُ مَتَى يُوْمَرُ فَيَنْفُخُ

How can I be comfortable when the one with the horn has placed it in his mouth, leaned his forehead forward, and is waiting to be commanded so that he can blow?

The Companions of the Messenger of Allah said, "What do you command us, O Messenger of Allah"

He replied,


حَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ عَلَى اللهِ تَوَكَّلْنَا


"Allah is sufficient for us, and what an excellent Trustee He is. We put our trust in Allah."

It has been recorded like this by Imam Ahmad on the authority of Asbat.

Concerning Allah's statement,

فَذَلِكَ يَوْمَيِذٍ يَوْمٌ عَسِيرٌ

Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day.

meaning, severe.

عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ غَيْرُ يَسِيرٍ

Far from easy for the disbelievers.

meaning, it will not be easy for them.

This is as Allah says,

يَقُولُ الْكَـفِرُونَ هَـذَا يَوْمٌ عَسِرٌ

The disbelievers will say;"This a Hard Day." (54;8)

We have reported from Zurarah bin Awfa, the judge of Al-Basrah, that he lead the people in the morning prayer and he recited this Surah. Then, when he reached Allah's statement,

فَإِذَا نُقِرَ فِى النَّاقُورِ فَذَلِكَ يَوْمَيِذٍ يَوْمٌ عَسِيرٌ عَلَى الْكَـفِرِينَ غَيْرُ يَسِيرٍ

Then, when the Naqur is sounded. Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day -- far from easy for the disbelievers.

he made a moaning sound and then he fell down dead. May Allah have mercy on him
