Quranic Verse – For the Greedy(stingy) “We will make smooth for him the path of evil”

8. But he who is greedy and thinks himself self-sufficient, 9. And denies Al-Husna. 10. We will make smooth for him the path to evil. 11. And what will his wealth avail him when he goes down (in destruction).

Surah Al-Lail (92:8-11)

Interpretation of the meaning (Tafsir Ibn Kathir):

Swearing by the Diversity of Mankind in Their Efforts and informing of the Different Results of that:

“But he who is greedy” meaning, with that which he has.

“and thinks himself self-sufficient,” – This means he is stingy with his wealth and considers himself to be in no need of his Lord, the Mighty and Majestic.

“And denies Al-Husna.” – meaning, the recompense in the abode of the Hereafter.

“We will make smooth for him the path to evil.” – meaning, the path of evil.

This is as Allah says,

“And We shall turn their hearts and their eyes away, as they refused to believe therein for the first time, and We shall leave them in their trespass to wander blindly.” (6:110) And there are many Ayat with this meaning, proving that Allah rewards those who intend good with success, while whoever intends evil is abandoned, and all of this is in accordance with a preordained decree.
