Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 54. They ask thee to hasten on the Punishment: but, of a surety, Hell will encompass the Rejecters of Faith!- The challenge of the wicked for Punishment was answered in the last verse by reference to Allah’s merciful Respite, to give chances of repentance. It is answered in this verse by an assurance that if no repentance is forthcoming, the Punishment will be certain and of an all-pervasive kind. Hell will surround them on all sides, and above them and below them. 55. On the Day that the Punishment shall cover them from above them and from below them, and (a Voice) shall say: "Taste ye (the fruits) of your deeds!" This is not merely a reproach, but a justification of the Punishment. "It is you who brought it on yourselves by your evil deeds: blame none but yourselves. Allah’s Mercy gave you many chances: His Justice has now overtaken you."
