Quran: To understand a verse correctly; the verses in the context also must be referred

I have written comment on the “Random thoughts” blog at the topic “Knowing the mind of god”:

Quote :“Those who reject Faith, and die rejecting,- on them is Allah.s curse, and the curse of angels, and of all mankind; They will abide therein: Their penalty will not be lightened, nor will respite be their (lot). (2:161-162)” Unquote

To understand a verse correctly; one should read it together with the verses in the context:

[2:160] Those who conceal what We have sent down of Signs and guidance after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, it is these whom Allah curses; and so curse them those who curse.
[2:161] But they who repent and amend and openly declare the truth, it is these to whom I turn with forgiveness, and I am Oft-Returning with compassion and Merciful.
[2:162] Those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers, on them shall be the curse of Allah and of angels and of men all together.
[2:163] They shall remain under it. The punishment shall not be lightened for them, nor shall they be granted respite.
[2:164] And your God is One God; there is no God but He, the Gracious, the Merciful.


Please see the sentence [2:160] “We have made it clear for the people in the Book”; the verse is not in general for the non-believers; it is specific here for the people of the book or the Jews and Christians (called people of the book in Quran); so it is not for the Atheists here.

Hope that helps.
