Demand of torment by the negligent
Surah Huud (Hud) - 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
32. They said: O Noah! Thou hast disputed with us and multiplied disputation with us; now bring upon us that wherewith thou threatenest us, if thou art of the truthful.
33. He said: Only Allah will bring it upon you if He will, and ye can by no means escape.
32. Qaaluu yaa-Nuuhu qad jaadal-tanaa fa-‘ak-sarta jidaa-lanaa fa’-tinaa bimaa ta-‘idu-naaa ‘in kunta minas-saadiqiin.
33. Qaala ‘innamaa ya’-tii-kum bi-Hillaahu ‘in- shaaa-‘a wa maaa ‘antum bi-mu’-jiziin.
After hearing the sayings of Prophet Noah (peace be upon Him), which reply was given by His folk, from it, their entire nature comes in front. Noah (peace be upon him) caused to understand them meanings of Messenger/Prophet and caused to count those attributes, due to which a Man is appointed as a Prophet/Messenger. It was made known to them: Messenger/Prophet (peace be upon him) is not owner of wealth, property or power of possession. Moreover, He (peace be upon him) has fellow-feeling and sympathy with the entire human beings. Therefore, He (peace be upon him) does not want to see them going on the way of destruction and let them go.
For this purpose, Allah Almighty reveals upon Him (peace be upon him) some instructions and He desires to deliver the people such instructions.
In this verse, that last answer exists which was given by the folk of Noah (peace be upon him) after hearing His instructions. From it, utmost degree of their negligence, stubbornness, perverseness and scorn from useful matters appears. Summary of their reply is: Stop it. We have heard sufficient from you. Bring upon us that torment instantly; from which you threaten us, if you are the truthful.
When Messenger Noah (peace be upon him) heard this answer from the people, He (peace be upon him) said: torment is in the power of Allah Almighty. He will cause to taste you even in the world if He will desire. Only He is Able to send the agony, not anyone else. But when it will come, then you will find shelter nowhere. None can restrain Allah Almighty in any matter. You are nothing before Him.
