وَاِذْ قُلْتُمْ يٰمُوْسٰى لَنْ نُّؤْمِنَ لَكَ حَتّٰى نَرَى اللّٰهَ جَهْرَةً فَاَخَذَتْكُمُ الصّٰعِقَةُ وَاَنْتُمْ تَنْظُرُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word حَتّٰى is in Verse # 55 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is sharing the story of Israelites when they said to Moses(A.S) that they will never believe the existence of Allah Subhan O Talah until we see Allah with our own eyes. So a thunderbolt struck you while you were looking on.

The last placement of the root word حَتّٰى is in Verse # 02 Chapter # 102 a profound co-relation between the initial placement of the word حَتّٰى with the last placement in the Holy Qur’an. The reality of Allah Subhan O Talah will be revealed on them in their graves.


وَتَرَى الشَّمْسَ اِذَا طَلَعَتْ تَّزٰوَرُ عَنْ كَهْفِهِمْ ذَاتَ الْيَمِيْنِ وَاِذَا غَرَبَتْ تَّقْرِضُهُمْ ذَاتَ الشِّمَالِ وَهُمْ فِيْ فَجْــوَةٍ مِّنْهُ ۭ ذٰلِكَ مِنْ اٰيٰتِ اللّٰهِ ۭ مَنْ يَّهْدِ اللّٰهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِ ۚ وَمَنْ يُّضْلِلْ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لَهٗ وَلِيًّا مُّرْشِدًا

The first placement of the root word زُرْتُمُ is in Verse # 17 Chapter # 18 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is sharing another story about the people of the cave. Those who spend their lives in the remembrance of Allah Subhan O Talah their grave (Cave) will have Allah Subhan O Talah blessings. Even the sun inclined away from them to facilitate and to ensure that they would not be disturb. And That is one of the signs of Allah. Whoever Allah guides are truly guided. But whoever He leaves to stray, you will never find for them a guiding mentor.

The last placement of the root word زُرْتُمُ is in Verse # 02 Chapter # 102. Those who spend their lives on the defined rules of Allah Subhan O Talah. They will be blessed in worldly affairs. Their rank and status would be higher even in life after death.


.وَلَا تُصَلِّ عَلٰٓي اَحَدٍ مِّنْهُمْ مَّاتَ اَبَدًا وَّلَا تَقُمْ عَلٰي قَبْرِهٖ ۭ اِنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوْا بِاللّٰهِ وَرَسُوْلِهٖ وَمَاتُوْا وَهُمْ فٰسِقُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word الْمَقَابِرَ is in Verse # 84 Chapter # 09. The historical background of this Ayat is when Abdullah Ibn Ubayy(عبداللہ بن ابی رئیس) died. He seemingly becomes Muslim but in his heart remained an enemy of Islam. In Islamic history, he would remember as a hypocrite (Munafiq). Despite the various conflicts with Rasool Allah (SAW). Rasool Allah(SAW) did not show signs of vindictiveness towards him

On his death, his son came to Rasool Allah (SAW) and requested Rasool Allah (SAW) to offer his Janaza. Then Allah Subhan O Talah revealed this Ayat.

The last placement of the root الْمَقَابِرَ is in Verse # 02 Chapter # 102. If you co-relate with the earlier placement of the root word with the last placement of الْمَقَابِرَ.We can conclude that if someone spends his life having bad intent in his heart against Islam and in particular Rasool Allah(SAW). Allah Subhan O Talah would stop his Prophet(SAW) not to even offer his Janaza.


To summarize, Allah Subhan O Talah used three different stories and conclusion to these stories is linked with the Verse # 02 , Chapter # 102 of Surat-Tu-Takasur(Arabic: التكاثر). (حَتّٰى زُرْتُمُ الْمَقَابِرَ)

  1. Moses (AS) nation demanded that they wanted to see Allah Subhan O Talah. When this could happen. Until they end up in their graves
  2. People of Cave. Those who are truly guided are guided by Allah Subhan O Talah. They will also face Allah Subhan O Talah . Until they end up in their graves.
  3. Those who have animosity against Rasool Allah (SAW) and Islam. They will also face their result. When that would happen. Until they end up in their graves.
