(39) لِيُبَيِّنَ لَهُمُ الَّذي يَخْتَلِفُونَ فيهِ وَ لِيَعْلَمَ الَّذينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّهُمْ كانُوا كاذِبينَ
39. " (They will be raised up) so that He may make clear to them that which they differed about, and that those who disbelieved might know that they (themselves) were liars. "
The pagans were hesitant and disagreed on such issues as monotheism, legitimacy and authenticity of the prophets' mission, resurrection day, and the accountability of one's deeds. This holy verse proclaims that all these issues will be clarified for them in the resurrection day and they will discover as to what untrue and unacceptable beliefs they were holding in the world. But to what effect will it be?
It is for this reason that Allah raises them from the dead so as to enable them to see for them what they rejected and disagreed on, for the doomsday makes them acquire positively decisive knowledge.
Another point is that the pagans become aware that they were lairs in this world and their claim as to the fact that Allah will not make the dead rise up after death was utter nonsense and groundless. The verse says:
