Interpretation of Sura an-Nur - Verse 25
Adopted from the book: "The Light of the Holy Qur'an - Interpretation of Sura an-Nur" by: "Sayyid Kamal Faghih Imani & a Group of Muslim Scholars"
25. "On that day Allah will pay them their just due, and they will know that Allah, He is the (very) Manifest Truth."
It is only in the Hereafter that retributions will be given in full.
The Arabic word /dan/, mentioned in this holy verse means either retribution or religion. Therefore, the holy verse either implies that Allah fully pays people's retribution in hereafter, or that the real and true divine religion will be represented to people and all fantastic religion-founders will realize that Allah is the real deity Who is true, right, and obvious. (Al-mazan, the Commentary)
Since full retribution cannot be materialized in this world for its limitations, for example, how we can in this world punish a pilot who has bombarded a city and has killed thousands of people. But there is no limitation in the Hereafter and a criminal can be burnt many times in the Hell and each time he will be alive again. The verse says:
"On that day Allah will pay them their just due, and they will know that Allah, He is the (very) Manifest Truth."
If today, in this world, they doubt in the rightfulness of Allah, or they lead people astray, in the resurrection day the signs of Allah's magnificence, power, and rightfulness are so obvious that will make the most stubborn people confess.
