Tafsir von Maududi für die Ayaat 60 bis 74
This indeed is the supreme success. For the like of this, then, should the workers work. Say, "Is this feast better or the zaqqum tree? ( 34 ) We have made that tree a trial for the wicked people. ( 35 ) It is a tree that grows out from the bottom of Hell. Its buds are like the heads of satans. ( 36 ) The dwellers of Hell shall eat it and fill their bellies with it. Then, upon it, they will get boiling water to drink. Then, their return shall be to the same Fire of Hell. ( 37 ) These are the people, who found their forefathers astray and they hastened in their footsteps, whereas many people before them had gone astray though We had sent warners among them. Now see what was the end of those who had been warned. Only such servants of Allah were able to avoid this evil end, whom Allah has chosen for Himself. ( 38 )
Desc No: 34 Zaqqum is a tree of the cactus species found in Tihamah. It is bitter in taste, obnoxious in smell and sheds a milk like juice when cut or broken.
Desc No: 35 That is, "On hearing this the disbelievers get a new opportunity to taunt the Qur'an and mock the Holy Prophet. They ridicule it saying, `Listen another strange thing: a tree will grow in the blazing fire of Hell'!"
Desc No: 36 Nobody should have the misunderstanding that since no one has seen the head of Satan, it was no use likening the buds of zaqqum to it. This is, in fact, an imaginative kind of the simile, and is employed in the literature of every language. For example, in order to give an idea of the rare beauty of a woman, it is said she is a fairy, and in order to describe her ugliness, it is said that she is a hag or a demon. Likewise, a pious-looking person is described as an angel and a dreadful-looking person as a devil.
Desc No: 37 This shows that when the dwellers of Hell will be in distress due to hunger and thirst, they will be driven to the side where there would be the zaqqum trees and the springs of boiling water. When they will have eaten and drunk, they will be brought back to Hell.
Desc No: 38 That is, they never used their own common sense to sec whether the way their forefathers had been following was right or wrong; they just blindly adopted the way that they found others following.
