Sura 34
Aya 53
وَقَد كَفَروا بِهِ مِن قَبلُ ۖ وَيَقذِفونَ بِالغَيبِ مِن مَكانٍ بَعيدٍ

Ali Unal

(And) when they certainly disbelieved in it before? They have been aiming at the Unseen (the Hereafter) from far away1 (with words all untrue, and with out any basis in true knowledge).
  • This signifies that a human being is extremely far away from the world at the time of death when he or she is on the verge of being transferred to the Hereafter. It also implies that while in the world, he or she is far away from the Hereafter. This distance signifies the distance between unbelief and the Hereafter and arises from unbelief itself.
