24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

The Record of the Wicked and some of what happens to Them

Allah says truly,

كَلَّ إِنَّ كِتَابَ الفُجَّارِ لَفِي سِجِّينٍ




Nay! Truly, the Record of the wicked is in Sijjin.

meaning, that their final destination and their abode will be in Sijjin, which is derived from the word prison (Sijn), and here it means straitened circumstances.

Thus, Allah expresses the greatness of this matter, saying;

وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا سِجِّينٌ
