|The Faces of the People of Paradise and the People of the Fire on the Day of Judgement|
﴿وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُّسْفِرَةٌ - ضَـحِكَةٌ مُّسْتَبْشِرَةٌ ﴾
(Some faces that Day will be bright (Musfirah), laughing, rejoicing at good news.) meaning, the people will be divided into two parties. There will be faces that are Musfirah, which means bright.
﴿ضَـحِكَةٌ مُّسْتَبْشِرَةٌ ﴾
(Laughing, rejoicing at good news.) meaning, happy and pleased due to the joy that will be in their hearts. The good news will be apparent on their faces. These will be the people of Paradise.
﴿وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ - تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ ﴾
(And other faces that Day will be dust-stained. Darkness (Qatarah) will cover them.) meaning, they will be overcome and covered with Qatarah, which is darkness. Ibn `Abbas said,
﴿تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ ﴾
(Darkness (Qatarah) will cover them.) "This means that they (the faces) will be overcome with darkness.'' Allah said,
﴿أُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْكَفَرَةُ الْفَجَرَةُ ﴾
(Such will be the disbelieving, the wicked evildoers.) meaning, they are disbelievers in their hearts, evildoers in their actions. This is as Allah says,
﴿وَلاَ يَلِدُواْ إِلاَّ فَاجِراً كَفَّاراً﴾
(And they will beget none but wicked disbelievers.) (71:27) This is the end of the Tafsir of Surat `Abasa, and to Allah all praise and thanks are due.
