Attributes Of Disbelievers In The Qur'an

Whereas Allah has described believers in the Qur'an with the best of names, He has found disbelievers, idolaters and hypocrites deserving of the most dishonorable ones since disbelievers are guilty. The offence they commit is the most serious offence ever. It is the most serious offence in the universe to be disobedient and ungrateful to Allah, Who created and gave one. Man is created to be a servant to Allah and will be repaid for it if he rejects his reason for existence. Allah debases that person both spiritually and physically to the most contemptible level. And that person is referred to with the basest names. Allah describes disbelievers in the Qur'an as follows:
