Sura 15
Aya 50
وَأَنَّ عَذابي هُوَ العَذابُ الأَليمُ

Muhammad Asad

and [also,] that the suffering which I shall impose [on sinners] will indeed be a suffering most grievous.1
  • In his commentary on the above two verses, Razi notes that the statement relating to God's forgiveness and grace contains a threefold emphasis - expressed by the repetition of the personal pronoun and relating to God, and the definite article al before each of the two participial adjectives - whereas there is no such stress in the mention of His chastisement of recalcitrant sinners. (Cf. 6:12 - and the corresponding note 10 - as well as 6:54, both of which verses state that God "has willed upon Himself the law of grace and mercy".)
