Be Merciful to Allaah’s Creation Lest You Are Afflicted By What Afflicted The Brutal and Merciless People of Aad

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said that Hud [alayhis-salaam] said to Aad:

وَإِذَا بَطَشْتُمْ بَطَشْتُمْ جَبَّارِينَ

  And when you seize, you seize as tyrants?

[Soorah Ash-shu-araa: Ayah: 130]

Imaam Ibn katheer (rahimahullaah) said: ”He described them with strength, harshness and tyranny. And when you seize, you seize as tyrants without having any pity.” [Ref 1]

Imaam as-Saa’di (rahimahullaah) said: ”And when you seize’’ the creation [i.e. your opponents], you seize as tyrants’’ by killing, hitting and seizing wealth.  Indeed, Allaah granted them great strength and it was incumbent upon them to utilise their strength in obedience to Allaah; but instead they were boastful and arrogant. And they said: ‘’Who is mightier than us in strength?’’ and they utilised their strength in disobedience to Allaah, futility and foolishness.  Therefore, their Prophet [Hud] forbade them from that. [Ref 2]

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah] stated about the statement of Allaah: [وَإِذَا بَطَشْتُمْ بَطَشْتُمْ جَبَّارِينَ – And when you seize, you seize as tyrants?] [26:130]

This is a rebuke against Aad-the people of Hud [alayhis-salaam]. Allaah rebuked them and that they are oppressors who strike people without right. They oppress people by way of striking, killing and seizing wealth by force. This is a rebuke against them and a blameworthy trait of theirs. This [behaviour of theirs] is not permissible. This [i.e. this statement of Allaah] is a rebuke against Aad and a blameworthy affair for which Allaah sent a devastating barren wind against them. They used to oppress the people and transgressed against them. [Ref 3]
