فَأَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ رِيحًا صَرْصَرًا فِي أَيَّامٍ نَّحِسَاتٍ لِّنُذِيقَهُمْ عَذَابَ الْخِزْيِ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا
وَلَعَذَابُ الْآخِرَةِ أَخْزَى وَهُمْ لَا يُنصَرُونَ
“We will make them taste the torment of disgrace in the life of this world”
Abu Baseer said, I asked Imam Sadiq (as), “What is “the torment of disgrace in the life of this world” which is mentioned in this verse, ‘We will make them taste the torment of disgrace in the life of this world’
Imam (as) replied, O Aba Baseer! What can be more disgraceful than men sitting with their families, their brothers, and their children when they are suddenly disfigured. The women (of their families) will start screaming (when this happens).
When they are asked why (they are screaming), they will reply, “They were disfigured suddenly.”
I asked, “Will this happen before or after the rising of the Qa’em (as)?” Imam (as) replied, “No. This will happen before the rising of the Qaem (as) (Al Ghaybah by Nomani page 143)
Note: This could be an indicator of the after effects of a nuclear explosion which could cause sudden disfiguration.
