Surah Maryam (Mary) 19 : 79
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
In such a case, he would be certain that God’s covenant will be fulfilled. This is followed by an expression of categorical negation which, in Arabic, adds connotations of a prohibition: “By no means!” (Verse 79) He neither attained to any such realm, nor made any covenant with God. He merely rejects the truth and derides its promise.
A stern warning is, then, very apt here to stop such arrogant claims: “By no means! We shall record what he says, and We shall long extend his suffering.” (Verse 79) We will write down whatever he says, so that it is not forgotten, admitting no dispute on the Day of Judgement. This is again a merely descriptive image, because no dispute or argument is possible as God’s knowledge encompasses every little detail. Moreover, the punishment meted out to such sinners will be increased manifold, in time and volume, so as to continue without interruption.

It was revealed before the first migration to Abyssinia. We learn from an authentic hadith that Ja’afar (a companion of the Prophet) recited v. 1-40 of this Surah to the court of the Negus when the Muslims had been summoned.
