The Punishment of Not Marching Forth


Allaah says:

“Unless you go forth, He will punish you with a severe punishment, and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allaah has power over all things.” [9:39]

Ibn Al-‘Arabi said, commenting on this verse:

“The severe punishment in this world is through the occupation of the enemy, and in the hereafter by the Fire.” [See Tafseer Al-Qurtubi, 8/142]
