Sura 29
Aya 67
أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنّا جَعَلنا حَرَمًا آمِنًا وَيُتَخَطَّفُ النّاسُ مِن حَولِهِم ۚ أَفَبِالباطِلِ يُؤمِنونَ وَبِنِعمَةِ اللَّهِ يَكفُرونَ

Muhammad Asad

Are they, then, not aware that We have set up a sanctuary secure [for those who believe in Us], the while all around them men are being carried away [by fear and despair]?1 Will they, then, [continue to] believe in things false and vain, and thus God's blessings deny?
  • See note 58 on the second paragraph of 28:57. In contrast to the "sanctuary secure" - the inner peace and sense of spiritual fulfilment which God bestows on those who truly believe in Him - the atheist or agnostic is more often than not exposed to fear of the Unknown and a despair born of the uncertainty as to what will happen to him after death.
