Surah Al-Ahzab Ayat 41, 42 & 43 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (12 Dec 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[33].Surah Al-Ahzab [The Confederates]

Ayat 41. O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance.

Ayat 42. And glorify His Praises morning and afternoon [the early morning (Fajr) and ‘Asr prayers].

Ayat 43. He it is Allah sends Salat (His blessings) on you, and His angels too (ask Allah to bless and forgive you), that He may bring you out from darkness (of disbelief and polytheism) into light (of Belief and Islamic Monotheism). And He is Ever Most Merciful to the believers.

Tafseer of Surah Al Ahzab (The Confederates) Ayat 41, 42 and 43. O ye who believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do this often; 42. And glorify Him morning and evening. 43. He it is Who sends blessings on you, as do His angels, that He may bring you out from the depths of Darkness into Light: and He is Full of Mercy to the Believers. Blessings: good wishes and mercies. Allah wishes well to all His creatures, and His angels carry out His work, for their will is in all things His Will. His chief and everlasting blessing is that He gives us a knowledge of the spiritual world, and helps us towards its attainment. For the symbolic meaning of Light and Darkness, see 24:35-40, His Mercies are for all His creatures, but for those who believe and trust in Him, there are special mercies, “a generous Reward” as in the next verse.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah image001.jpg [SAWW](PBUH) said, “I see what you do not see and I hear what you do not hear; heaven has squeaked, and it has the right to do so. By Him, in Whose Hand my soul is, there is not a space of four fingers in which there is not an angel who is prostrating his forehead before Allah, the Exalted. By Allah, if you knew what I know, you would laugh little, weep much, and you would not enjoy women in beds, but would go out to the open space beseeching Allah”.

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2312] 

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Al-Ahzab Ayat 41. “Remember Allah with much remembrance”

1. This Hadith also highlights the importance of fear of Allah because the more awareness a Muslim has of the Majesty and Magnificence of Allah, the greater shall be the terror in his heart for His punishment and hope of His Mercy. With this state of mind, he will perform greater acts of obedience and abstain more rigidly from sins.

2. The Hadith also mentions the heaven teeming with angels who are all the time prostrating before Allah in worship. When this is the condition of the angels, who do not slack for a moment in the obedience of Allah, how important it is for man to worship Him because he is all the time violating commands of Allah. It is, therefore, incumbent on man to obey Allah and always seek His Help and Refuge.
