الْفُجَّارِ

the wicked

كَلَّا إِنَّ كِتَابَ الْفُجَّارِ لَفِي سِجِّينٍ

“No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen.” (Sahih International)

Who are the fujjar?

According to The Quranic Arabic Corpus, Syeikh Mohsin Khan translated the word الْفُجَّارِ as “disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked”. Imam Ibn ‘Asyoor refered الْفُجَّارِ as Al-Musyrikun.

The word fujjaar is mentioned in soorah Al-Mutoffifeen, where Allah tells us that the record of the fujjaar is in sijjeen. According to Imam Ibn ‘Asyoor, the practice of giving less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others) will be recorded in the record of the fujjaar. And that record will be in Sijjeen. According to Imam Qataadah and Imam Mujaahid, Sijeen is a place at the 7th level under the earth, where there are also soul of the deniers.

May Allah guide us the straight path.
