Verses about Tyranny

Verses from the Book of Allah on Tyranny 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

    96-Surah Al-’alaq ( The Clot ) 6-8
            
    No! [But] indeed, man transgresses
    كَلَّا إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَيَطْغَىٰ
            
    Because he sees himself self-sufficient.
    أَن رَّآهُ اسْتَغْنَىٰ
            
    Indeed, to your Lord is the return.
    إِنَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ الرُّجْعَىٰ
    68-Surah Al-Qalam ( The Pen ) 28-33
            
    The most moderate of them said, ‘ Did I not say to you, ‘Why do you not exalt [Allah]?’ ‘
    قَالَ أَوْسَطُهُمْ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ لَوْلَا تُسَبِّحُونَ
            
    They said, ‘ Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers.’
    قَالُوا سُبْحَانَ رَبِّنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ
            
    Then they approached one another, blaming each other.
    فَأَقْبَلَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ يَتَلَاوَمُونَ
            
    They said, ‘ O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors.
    قَالُوا يَا وَيْلَنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا طَاغِينَ
            
    Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous.’
    عَسَىٰ رَبُّنَا أَن يُبْدِلَنَا خَيْرًا مِّنْهَا إِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا رَاغِبُونَ
            
    Such is the punishment [of this world]. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew.
    كَذَٰلِكَ الْعَذَابُ ۖ وَلَعَذَابُ الْآخِرَةِ أَكْبَرُ ۚ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ
    89-Surah Al-Fajr ( The Dawn ) 6-14
            
    Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with ‘Aad –
    أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعَادٍ
            
    [With] Iram – who had lofty pillars,
    إِرَمَ ذَاتِ الْعِمَادِ
            
    The likes of whom had never been created in the land?
    الَّتِي لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِي الْبِلَادِ
            
    And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in the valley?
    وَثَمُودَ الَّذِينَ جَابُوا الصَّخْرَ بِالْوَادِ
            
    And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? –
    وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِي الْأَوْتَادِ
            
    [All of] whom oppressed within the lands
    الَّذِينَ طَغَوْا فِي الْبِلَادِ
            
    And increased therein the corruption.
    فَأَكْثَرُوا فِيهَا الْفَسَادَ
            
    So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment.
    فَصَبَّ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّكَ سَوْطَ عَذَابٍ
            
    Indeed, your Lord is in observation.
    إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِالْمِرْصَادِ
    53-Surah An-Najm ( The Star ) 50-54
            
    And that He destroyed the first [people of] ‘Aad
    وَأَنَّهُ أَهْلَكَ عَادًا الْأُولَىٰ
            
    And Thamud – and He did not spare [them] –
    وَثَمُودَ فَمَا أَبْقَىٰ
            
    And the people of Noah before. Indeed, it was they who were [even] more unjust and oppressing.
    وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ مِّن قَبْلُ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا هُمْ أَظْلَمَ وَأَطْغَىٰ
            
    And the overturned towns He hurled down
    وَالْمُؤْتَفِكَةَ أَهْوَىٰ
            
    And covered them by that which He covered.
    فَغَشَّاهَا مَا غَشَّىٰ
    91-Surah Ash-Shams ( The Sun ) 11-15
            
    Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression,
    كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِطَغْوَاهَا
            
    When the most wretched of them was sent forth.
    إِذِ انبَعَثَ أَشْقَاهَا
            
    And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, ‘ [Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink.’
    فَقَالَ لَهُمْ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ نَاقَةَ اللَّهِ وَسُقْيَاهَا
            
    But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for their sin and made it equal [upon all of them].
    فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمْدَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُم بِذَنبِهِمْ فَسَوَّاهَا
            
    And He does not fear the consequence thereof.
    وَلَا يَخَافُ عُقْبَاهَا
    38-Surah Sad ( The Letter Sad ) 55-56
            
    This [is so]. But indeed, for the transgressors is an evil place of return –
    هَٰذَا ۚ وَإِنَّ لِلطَّاغِينَ لَشَرَّ مَآبٍ
            
    Hell, which they will [enter to] burn, and wretched is the resting place.
    جَهَنَّمَ يَصْلَوْنَهَا فَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ
    7-Surah Al-A’raf (The Heights ) 186
            
    Whoever Allah sends astray – there is no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression, wandering blindly.
    مَن يُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلَا هَادِيَ لَهُ ۚ وَيَذَرُهُمْ فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ
    20-Surah Taha 24
            
    Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.’
    اذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَىٰ
    20-Surah Taha 81
            
    [Saying], ‘ Eat from the good things with which We have provided you and do not transgress [or oppress others] therein, lest My anger should descend upon you. And he upon whom My anger descends has certainly fallen.’
    كُلُوا مِن طَيِّبَاتِ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ وَلَا تَطْغَوْا فِيهِ فَيَحِلَّ عَلَيْكُمْ غَضَبِي ۖ وَمَن يَحْلِلْ عَلَيْهِ غَضَبِي فَقَدْ هَوَىٰ
    28-Surah Al-Qasas ( The Stories ) 76
            
    Indeed, Qarun was from the people of Moses, but he tyrannized them. And We gave him of treasures whose keys would burden a band of strong men; thereupon his people said to him, ‘ Do not exult. Indeed, Allah does not like the exultant.
    ۞ إِنَّ قَارُونَ كَانَ مِن قَوْمِ مُوسَىٰ فَبَغَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ ۖ وَآتَيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْكُنُوزِ مَا إِنَّ مَفَاتِحَهُ لَتَنُوءُ بِالْعُصْبَةِ أُولِي الْقُوَّةِ إِذْ قَالَ لَهُ قَوْمُهُ لَا تَفْرَحْ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْفَرِحِينَ
    28-Surah Al-Qasas ( The Stories ) 78
            
    He said, ‘ I was only given it because of knowledge I have.’ Did he not know that Allah had destroyed before him of generations those who were greater than him in power and greater in accumulation [of wealth]? But the criminals, about their sins, will not be asked.
    قَالَ إِنَّمَا أُوتِيتُهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ عِندِي ۚ أَوَلَمْ يَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ أَهْلَكَ مِن قَبْلِهِ مِنَ الْقُرُونِ مَنْ هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنْهُ قُوَّةً وَأَكْثَرُ جَمْعًا ۚ وَلَا يُسْأَلُ عَن ذُنُوبِهِمُ الْمُجْرِمُونَ
    17-Surah Al-Isra ( The Night Journey ) 60
            
    And [remember, O Muhammad], when We told you, ‘ Indeed, your Lord has encompassed the people.’ And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree [mentioned] in the Qur’an. And We threaten them, but it increases them not except in great transgression.
    وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لَكَ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ أَحَاطَ بِالنَّاسِ ۚ وَمَا جَعَلْنَا الرُّؤْيَا الَّتِي أَرَيْنَاكَ إِلَّا فِتْنَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَالشَّجَرَةَ الْمَلْعُونَةَ فِي الْقُرْآنِ ۚ وَنُخَوِّفُهُمْ فَمَا يَزِيدُهُمْ إِلَّا طُغْيَانًا كَبِيرًا
    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
    11-Surah Hud 112
            
    So remain on a right course as you have been commanded, [you] and those who have turned back with you [to Allah], and do not transgress. Indeed, He is Seeing of what you do.
    فَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ وَمَن تَابَ مَعَكَ وَلَا تَطْغَوْا ۚ إِنَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
    6-Surah Al-An’am ( The Cattle ) 110-111
            
    And We will turn away their hearts and their eyes just as they refused to believe in it the first time. And We will leave them in their transgression, wandering blindly.
    وَنُقَلِّبُ أَفْئِدَتَهُمْ وَأَبْصَارَهُمْ كَمَا لَمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَنَذَرُهُمْ فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ
            
    And even if We had sent down to them the angels [with the message] and the dead spoke to them [of it] and We gathered together every [created] thing in front of them, they would not believe unless Allah should will. But most of them, [of that], are ignorant.
    ۞ وَلَوْ أَنَّنَا نَزَّلْنَا إِلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةَ وَكَلَّمَهُمُ الْمَوْتَىٰ وَحَشَرْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ قُبُلًا مَّا كَانُوا لِيُؤْمِنُوا إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ يَجْهَلُونَ
    37-Surah As-Saaffat ( Those Ranges in Ranks ) 29-32
            
    The oppressors will say, ‘ Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers,
    قَالُوا بَل لَّمْ تَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ
            
    And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people.
    وَمَا كَانَ لَنَا عَلَيْكُم مِّن سُلْطَانٍ ۖ بَلْ كُنتُمْ قَوْمًا طَاغِينَ
            
    So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment].
    فَحَقَّ عَلَيْنَا قَوْلُ رَبِّنَا ۖ إِنَّا لَذَائِقُونَ
            
    And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators.’
    فَأَغْوَيْنَاكُمْ إِنَّا كُنَّا غَاوِينَ
    51-Surah Adh-Dhariyat ( The Wind that Scatter ) 52-53
            
    Similarly, there came not to those before them any messenger except that they said, ‘ A magician or a madman.’
    كَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَتَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِم مِّن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُوا سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ
            
    Did they suggest it to them? Rather, they [themselves] are a transgressing people.
    أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ
    23-Surah Al-Mu’minoon ( The Believers ) 75
            
    And even if We gave them mercy and removed what was upon them of affliction, they would persist in their transgression, wandering blindly.
    ۞ وَلَوْ رَحِمْنَاهُمْ وَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِم مِّن ضُرٍّ لَّلَجُّوا فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ
    52-Surah At-Tur ( The Mount ) 32-33
            
    Or do their minds command them to [say] this, or are they a transgressing people?
    أَمْ تَأْمُرُهُمْ أَحْلَامُهُم بِهَٰذَا ۚ أَمْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ
            
    Or do they say, ‘ He has made it up’ ? Rather, they do not believe.
    أَمْ يَقُولُونَ تَقَوَّلَهُ ۚ بَل لَّا يُؤْمِنُونَ
    78-Surah An-Naba’ ( The Great News ) 21-28
            
    Indeed, Hell has been lying in wait
    إِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ كَانَتْ مِرْصَادًا
            
    For the transgressors, a place of return,
    لِّلطَّاغِينَ مَآبًا
            
    In which they will remain for ages [unending].
    لَّابِثِينَ فِيهَا أَحْقَابًا
            
    They will not taste therein [any] coolness or drink
    لَّا يَذُوقُونَ فِيهَا بَرْدًا وَلَا شَرَابًا
            
    Except scalding water and [foul] purulence –
    إِلَّا حَمِيمًا وَغَسَّاقًا
            
    An appropriate recompense.
    جَزَاءً وِفَاقًا
            
    Indeed, they were not expecting an account
    إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا لَا يَرْجُونَ حِسَابًا
            
    And denied Our verses with [emphatic] denial.
    وَكَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا كِذَّابًا
    79-Surah An-Nazi’at ( Those who Pull Out ) 6-11
            
    On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation],
    يَوْمَ تَرْجُفُ الرَّاجِفَةُ
            
    There will follow it the subsequent [one].
    تَتْبَعُهَا الرَّادِفَةُ
            
    Hearts, that Day, will tremble,
    قُلُوبٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاجِفَةٌ
            
    Their eyes humbled.
    أَبْصَارُهَا خَاشِعَةٌ
            
    They are [presently] saying, ‘ Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]?
    يَقُولُونَ أَإِنَّا لَمَرْدُودُونَ فِي الْحَافِرَةِ
            
    Even if we should be decayed bones?
    أَإِذَا كُنَّا عِظَامًا نَّخِرَةً
    79-Surah An-Nazi’at ( Those who Pull Out ) 13
            
    Indeed, it will be but one shout,
    فَإِنَّمَا هِيَ زَجْرَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ
    79-Surah An-Nazi’at ( Those who Pull Out ) 37-39
            
    So as for he who transgressed
    فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ
            
    And preferred the life of the world,
    وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
            
    Then indeed, Hellfire will be [his] refuge.
    فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ
    55-Surah Ar-Rahman ( The Most Graciouse ) 8
            
    That you not transgress within the balance.
    أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا فِي الْمِيزَانِ
    5-Surah Al-Maidah ( The Table spread with Food ) 64
            
    And the Jews say, ‘ The hand of Allah is chained.’ Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both His hands are extended; He spends however He wills. And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. And We have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war [against you], Allah extinguished it. And they strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters.
    وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ يَدُ اللَّهِ مَغْلُولَةٌ ۚ غُلَّتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَلُعِنُوا بِمَا قَالُوا ۘ بَلْ يَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ يُنفِقُ كَيْفَ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم مَّا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا ۚ وَأَلْقَيْنَا بَيْنَهُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ ۚ كُلَّمَا أَوْقَدُوا نَارًا لِّلْحَرْبِ أَطْفَأَهَا اللَّهُ ۚ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا ۚ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ
    5-Surah Al-Maidah ( The Table spread with Food ) 68
            
    Say, ‘ O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord.’ And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
    قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لَسْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَيْءٍ حَتَّىٰ تُقِيمُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنجِيلَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ ۗ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم مَّا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا ۖ فَلَا تَأْسَ عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
