Verses about Evil

Verses from the Book of Allah on Evil Arranged in the order of the descent of the fence and accompanied by a simple interpretation, as well as with the possibility of listening to it

    113-Surah Al-Falaq ( The Daybreak ) 1-5
            
    Say, ‘ I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak
    قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ
            
    From the evil of that which He created
    مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ
            
    And from the evil of darkness when it settles
    وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ
            
    And from the evil of the blowers in knots
    وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ
            
    And from the evil of an envier when he envies.’
    وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ
    114-Surah An-Nas ( Mankind ) 1-6
            
    Say, ‘ I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind,
    قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ
            
    The Sovereign of mankind.
    مَلِكِ النَّاسِ
            
    The God of mankind,
    إِلَٰهِ النَّاسِ
            
    From the evil of the retreating whisperer –
    مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ
            
    Who whispers [evil] into the breasts of mankind –
    الَّذِي يُوَسْوِسُ فِي صُدُورِ النَّاسِ
            
    From among the jinn and mankind.’
    مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ
    38-Surah Sad ( The Letter Sad ) 62-64
            
    And they will say, ‘ Why do we not see men whom we used to count among the worst?
    وَقَالُوا مَا لَنَا لَا نَرَىٰ رِجَالًا كُنَّا نَعُدُّهُم مِّنَ الْأَشْرَارِ
            
    Is it [because] we took them in ridicule, or has [our] vision turned away from them?’
    أَتَّخَذْنَاهُمْ سِخْرِيًّا أَمْ زَاغَتْ عَنْهُمُ الْأَبْصَارُ
            
    Indeed, that is truth – the quarreling of the people of the Fire.
    إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ لَحَقٌّ تَخَاصُمُ أَهْلِ النَّارِ
    19-Surah Maryam ( Mary ) 75
            
    Say, ‘ Whoever is in error – let the Most Merciful extend for him an extension [in wealth and time] until, when they see that which they were promised – either punishment [in this world] or the Hour [of resurrection] – they will come to know who is worst in position and weaker in soldiers.’
    قُلْ مَن كَانَ فِي الضَّلَالَةِ فَلْيَمْدُدْ لَهُ الرَّحْمَٰنُ مَدًّا ۚ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا رَأَوْا مَا يُوعَدُونَ إِمَّا الْعَذَابَ وَإِمَّا السَّاعَةَ فَسَيَعْلَمُونَ مَنْ هُوَ شَرٌّ مَّكَانًا وَأَضْعَفُ جُندًا
    17-Surah Al-Isra ( The Night Journey ) 11
            
    And man supplicates for evil as he supplicates for good, and man is ever hasty.
    وَيَدْعُ الْإِنسَانُ بِالشَّرِّ دُعَاءَهُ بِالْخَيْرِ ۖ وَكَانَ الْإِنسَانُ عَجُولًا
    17-Surah Al-Isra ( The Night Journey ) 83
            
    And when We bestow favor upon the disbeliever, he turns away and distances himself; and when evil touches him, he is ever despairing.
    وَإِذَا أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَى الْإِنسَانِ أَعْرَضَ وَنَأَىٰ بِجَانِبِهِ ۖ وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ كَانَ يَئُوسًا
    10-Surah Yunus ( Jonah ) 11
            
    And if Allah was to hasten for the people the evil [they invoke] as He hastens for them the good, their term would have been ended for them. But We leave the ones who do not expect the meeting with Us, in their transgression, wandering blindly
    ۞ وَلَوْ يُعَجِّلُ اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ الشَّرَّ اسْتِعْجَالَهُم بِالْخَيْرِ لَقُضِيَ إِلَيْهِمْ أَجَلُهُمْ ۖ فَنَذَرُ الَّذِينَ لَا يَرْجُونَ لِقَاءَنَا فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ
    12-Surah Yusuf (Joseph ) 77
            
    They said, ‘ If he steals – a brother of his has stolen before.’ But Joseph kept it within himself and did not reveal it to them. He said, ‘ You are worse in position, and Allah is most knowing of what you describe.’
    ۞ قَالُوا إِن يَسْرِقْ فَقَدْ سَرَقَ أَخٌ لَّهُ مِن قَبْلُ ۚ فَأَسَرَّهَا يُوسُفُ فِي نَفْسِهِ وَلَمْ يُبْدِهَا لَهُمْ ۚ قَالَ أَنتُمْ شَرٌّ مَّكَانًا ۖ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَصِفُونَ
    41-Surah Fussilat ( Explained in Detail ) 49-51
            
    Man is not weary of supplication for good [things], but if evil touches him, he is hopeless and despairing.
    لَّا يَسْأَمُ الْإِنسَانُ مِن دُعَاءِ الْخَيْرِ وَإِن مَّسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَيَئُوسٌ قَنُوطٌ
            
    And if We let him taste mercy from Us after an adversity which has touched him, he will surely say, ‘ This is [due] to me, and I do not think the Hour will occur; and [even] if I should be returned to my Lord, indeed, for me there will be with Him the best.’ But We will surely inform those who disbelieved about what they did, and We will surely make them taste a massive punishment.
    وَلَئِنْ أَذَقْنَاهُ رَحْمَةً مِّنَّا مِن بَعْدِ ضَرَّاءَ مَسَّتْهُ لَيَقُولَنَّ هَٰذَا لِي وَمَا أَظُنُّ السَّاعَةَ قَائِمَةً وَلَئِن رُّجِعْتُ إِلَىٰ رَبِّي إِنَّ لِي عِندَهُ لَلْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ فَلَنُنَبِّئَنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِمَا عَمِلُوا وَلَنُذِيقَنَّهُم مِّنْ عَذَابٍ غَلِيظٍ
            
    And when We bestow favor upon man, he turns away and distances himself; but when evil touches him, then he is full of extensive supplication.
    وَإِذَا أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَى الْإِنسَانِ أَعْرَضَ وَنَأَىٰ بِجَانِبِهِ وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَذُو دُعَاءٍ عَرِيضٍ
    21-Surah Al-Anbiya ( The Prophets ) 35
            
    Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned.
    كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ
    70-Surah Al-Ma’arij (The Ways of Ascent ) 19-23
            
    Indeed, mankind was created anxious:
    ۞ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا
            
    When evil touches him, impatient,
    إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعًا
            
    And when good touches him, withholding [of it],
    وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعًا
            
    Except the observers of prayer –
    إِلَّا الْمُصَلِّينَ
            
    Those who are constant in their prayer
    الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَاتِهِمْ دَائِمُونَ
    8-Surah Al-Anfal ( The Spoils of War ) 22
            
    Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason.
    ۞ إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابِّ عِندَ اللَّهِ الصُّمُّ الْبُكْمُ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ
    8-Surah Al-Anfal ( The Spoils of War ) 55
            
    Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe –
    إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابِّ عِندَ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
    3-Surah Al-Imran ( The Family of Imran ) 180
            
    And let not those who [greedily] withhold what Allah has given them of His bounty ever think that it is better for them. Rather, it is worse for them. Their necks will be encircled by what they withheld on the Day of Resurrection. And to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. And Allah, with what you do, is [fully] Acquainted.
    وَلَا يَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ يَبْخَلُونَ بِمَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ هُوَ خَيْرًا لَّهُم ۖ بَلْ هُوَ شَرٌّ لَّهُمْ ۖ سَيُطَوَّقُونَ مَا بَخِلُوا بِهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۗ وَلِلَّهِ مِيرَاثُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ
    99-Surah Az-Zalzalah ( The Earthquake ) 8
            
    And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.
    وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
    98-Surah Al-Bayyinah ( The Clear Evidence ) 6
            
    Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures.
    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ وَالْمُشْرِكِينَ فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمْ شَرُّ الْبَرِيَّةِ
    24-Surah An-Noor ( The Light ) 11
            
    Indeed, those who came with falsehood are a group among you. Do not think it bad for you; rather it is good for you. For every person among them is what [punishment] he has earned from the sin, and he who took upon himself the greater portion thereof – for him is a great punishment.
    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ جَاءُوا بِالْإِفْكِ عُصْبَةٌ مِّنكُمْ ۚ لَا تَحْسَبُوهُ شَرًّا لَّكُم ۖ بَلْ هُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۚ لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُم مَّا اكْتَسَبَ مِنَ الْإِثْمِ ۚ وَالَّذِي تَوَلَّىٰ كِبْرَهُ مِنْهُمْ لَهُ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ
    22-Surah Al-Hajj ( The Pilgrimage ) 72
            
    And when Our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, you recognize in the faces of those who disbelieve disapproval. They are almost on the verge of assaulting those who recite to them Our verses. Say, ‘ Then shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that? [It is] the Fire which Allah has promised those who disbelieve, and wretched is the destination.’
    وَإِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُنَا بَيِّنَاتٍ تَعْرِفُ فِي وُجُوهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا الْمُنكَرَ ۖ يَكَادُونَ يَسْطُونَ بِالَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِنَا ۗ قُلْ أَفَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذَٰلِكُمُ ۗ النَّارُ وَعَدَهَا اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ۖ وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ
    5-Surah Al-Maidah ( The Table spread with Food ) 60
            
    Say, ‘ Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.’
    قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذَٰلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِندَ اللَّهِ ۚ مَن لَّعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ شَرٌّ مَّكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَن سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ
