The Idolators thought that Resurrection after Death was very unlikely Print E-mail

Then Allah tells us about those who denied the resurrection, who were like the disbelievers who came before them:

﴿بَلْ قَالُواْ مِثْلَ مَا قَالَ الاٌّوَّلُونَ - قَالُواْ أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَاباً وَعِظَـماً أَءِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ ﴾

(Nay, but they say the like of what the men of old said. They said: "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected indeed'') They thought it very unlikely that this would happen after they had disintegrated into nothing.

﴿لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا نَحْنُ وَءَابَآؤُنَا هَـذَا مِن قَبْلُ إِنْ هَـذَآ إِلاَّ أَسَـطِيرُ الاٌّوَّلِينَ ﴾

("Verily, this we have been promised -- we and our fathers before (us)! This is only the tales of the ancients!'') This means, "It is impossible that we could be brought back. This was said by those who learned it from the books and disputes of the ancients.'' This denial and rejection on their part is like the Ayah where Allah tells us about them:

﴿أَءِذَا كُنَّا عِظَـماً نَّخِرَةً - قَالُواْ تِلْكَ إِذاً كَرَّةٌ خَـسِرَةٌ - فَإِنَّمَا هِىَ زَجْرَةٌ وَحِدَةٌ - فَإِذَا هُم بِالسَّاهِرَةِ ﴾

("Even after we are crumbled bones'' They say: "It would in that case, be a return with loss!'' But it will be only a single Zajrah, When behold, they find themselves on the surface of the earth alive after their death.) ﴿79:11-14﴾

﴿أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الإِنسَـنُ أَنَّا خَلَقْنَـهُ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ فَإِذَا هُوَ خَصِيمٌ مٌّبِينٌ - وَضَرَبَ لَنَا مَثَلاً وَنَسِىَ خَلْقَهُ قَالَ مَن يُحىِ الْعِظَـمَ وَهِىَ رَمِيمٌ - قُلْ يُحْيِيهَا الَّذِى أَنشَأَهَآ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ خَلْقٍ عَلِيمٌ ﴾

(Does not man see that We have created him from Nutfah. Yet behold he (stands forth) as an open opponent. And he puts forth for Us a parable, and forgets his own creation. He says: "Who will give life to these bones after they are rotten and have become dust'' Say: "He will give life to them Who created them for the first time! And He is the All-Knower of every creation!'') ﴿36:77-79﴾

﴿قُل لِّمَنِ الاٌّرْضُ وَمَن فِيهَآ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ - سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ قُلْ أَفَلاَ تَذَكَّرُونَ - قُلْ مَن رَّبُّ السَّمَـوَتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴾

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ قُلْ أَفَلاَ تَتَّقُونَ-﴾

قُلْ مَن بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلّ شَىْء وَهُوَ يُجْيِرُ وَلاَ يُجَارُ عَلَيْهِ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ- سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ قُلْ فَأَنَّى تُسْحَرُونَ- بَلْ أَتَيْنَـهُمْ بِالْحَقّ وَإِنَّهُمْ لَكَـذِبُونَ-﴾

(84. Say: "Whose is the earth and whosoever is therein If you know!'') (85. They will say: "It is Allah's!'' Say: "Will you not then remember'') (86. Say: "Who is (the) Lord of the seven heavens, and (the) Lord of the Great Throne'') (87. They will say: "Allah.'' Say: "Will you not then have Taqwa'') (88. Say: "In Whose Hand is the sovereignty of everything And He protects, while against Whom there is no protector, if you know'') (89. They will say: "(All that belongs) to Allah.'' Say: "How then are you deceived and turn away from the truth'') (90. Nay, but We have brought them the truth, and verily, they are liars.)
