Sura 36
Aya 63
هٰذِهِ جَهَنَّمُ الَّتي كُنتُم توعَدونَ

Muhammad Asad

"This, then, is the hell of which you were warned again and again:1
  • The phrase "This, then, is the hell" points to the fact that the sinners' realization of their having gone astray despite repeated warnings by the prophets will, in itself, be a source of intense suffering ('adhab) in the life to come. The element of repetition or persistence is implied in the use of the auxiliary verb kuntum both here and in the next verse.
