“But whoever turns away from this Admonition from Me shall have a straitened life, and We shall raise him blind on the Day of Resurrection, whereupon he will say: ‘Lord! Why have you raised me blind when I had sight in the world? He will say: ‘Even so it is. Our Signs came to you and you ignored them. So you shall be ignored this Day’.”
( Qur'an – 20:124:25)
These verses from the Holy Qur'an say that the unrighteous will have a wretched life in this world. This does not mean that all those who are unrighteous will necessarily face poverty. What is meant is that such people will be unable to find peace and contentment. Someone may be a millionaire, and yet their life will be plagued by discontent and restlessness. Even the ruler of a vast empire may be intensely unhappy and suffer mental agonies.
Transgressors will pass through different states during the interregnum, beginning with their new life commencing on the Day of Resurrection up until their entry into Hell. God will enable them to foresee the terrible scenes of the Last Day and the dire consequences of their misdeeds. They will, however, only be able to see this much but no more. In other respects they will be like the blind, unable to find their way: they will not enjoy the assistance of anyone to help them walk nor will they even possess a stick to help them feel their way. Instead, they will stumble at every step, not knowing in which direction to proceed, absolutely ignorant of what lies ahead of or behind them.
The underlying idea is that no attention will be paid to the unbelievers; their state of suffering and perplexity will be altogether ignored. No one will come forward to lend them a supporting hand nor will there be anyone to fulfil their needs for them, or to look after them.
