Sura 57
Aya 15
فَاليَومَ لا يُؤخَذُ مِنكُم فِديَةٌ وَلا مِنَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا ۚ مَأواكُمُ النّارُ ۖ هِيَ مَولاكُم ۖ وَبِئسَ المَصيرُ

Yusuf Ali

“This Day shall no ransom be accepted of you, nor of those who rejected God.1 Your abode is the Fire: that is the proper place to claim you: and an evil refuge it is!”
  • In personal responsibility there is no room for vicarious ransom or for ransom by payments of gold or silver or by sacrifice of possessions. Nor can the crime be expiated for after Judgment 'You' and ’those who rejected God' are two ways of looking at the same persons. 'You are rejected because you rejected God.'
