Tafsir von Maududi für die Ayaat 6 bis 7
O you who have believed, save yourselves and your households from a Fire whose fuel shall be the men and the stones, ( 16 ) over which shall be appointed fierce and stern angels, who never disobey Allah's Command and do as they are commanded. ( 17 ) (At that time it will be said:) "O disbelievers, do not make excuses today. You are being recompensed only for what you were doing." ( 18 )
Desc No: 16 Thts verse tells that a person's responsibility is not confined to making effort to save himself from the punishment of God but it is also his responsibility that he should so educate and train to the best of his ability members of his family also to become Allah's favourite servants, who have been entrusted to his care in the natural process of life; and if they might be following a path to Hell, he should try. as far as he can, to correct them.

Desc No: 17 That is, they will enforce on every culprit precisely the same punishment which they will be commanded to enforce on him without making any alteration in it, or showing any pity for him.
Desc No: 18 The style of both these verses contains a severe warning for the Muslims. In the first verse the Muslims have been addressed and told that they should save themselves and their households from the dreadful punishment; in the second that this will be said to the disbelievers while subjecting them to punishment in Hell. This by itself gives the meaning that the Muslims in the world should avoid adopting that conduct and behaviour in consequence of which they may have to meet with the fate as the disbelievers in the Hereafter:
