English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Yusuf [Joseph]
Ayat 40. “You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgment) is for none but Allah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not.
Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 40. “If not Him, ye worship nothing but names which ye have named, ye and your fathers,- for which Allah hath sent down no authority: the command is for none but Allah. He hath commanded that ye worship none but Him: that is the right religion, but most men understand not. ‘If you name other gods, they are nothing but your inventions—names which you and your fathers put forward without any reality behind them. Who gave you authority to do any such thing? The only reality is Allah. Authority can come from Him alone. It is only for Him to command. And He has distinctly commanded you to worship none other than Him. That is the only religion that is right—that has stood and will stand and endure forever. He has revealed it at all times by His Messengers and by His Signs. If men fail to understand, It is their own fault (Cf. 7:71, 13:33, and 53:23).
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Successful is the one who enters the fold of Islam and is provided with sustenance which is sufficient for his day’s needs, and Allah makes him content with what He has bestowed upon him.”
[Muslim Book 005, Chapter 40: Hadith # 2293].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 40. “The command (or the judgment) is for none but Allah.” The real success of a man will be measured by his being blessed with Divine mercy and forgiveness in the Hereafter, and this is contingent on Islam alone. If he lacks the wealth of Islam, all the worldly possessions will not ensure his success in the next world. This Hadith tells us that richness is not to be defined in terms of a lot of belongings, and that the real richness is gauged by the contentment of the soul.
