English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 47. And announce to the believers (in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammad image001.jpg [SAWW](PBUH) the glad tidings that they will have from Allah a Great Bounty.

Ayat 48. And obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and harm them not (till you are ordered). And put your trust in Allah, and Sufficient is Allah as a Wakil (Trustee, or Disposer of affairs).

Tafseer of Surah Al Ahzab (The Confederates) Ayat 47 and 48. Then give the Glad Tidings to the Believers, that they shall have from Allah a very great Bounty. The light of Islam is the Biggest Bounty possible and if they truly understand it, they should glory in it. Ayat 48. And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and heed not their annoyances, but put thy Trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. Men of little or no Faith will often lay down the law and tell better men than themselves what to do. In case of refusal they shower insults and injuries. No attention is to be paid to them. It is their way. All will be right under the government of Allah.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah image001.jpg [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “If anyone calls others to follow right guidance, his reward will be equivalent to those who follow him (in righteousness) without their reward being diminished in any respect, and if anyone invites others to follow error, the sin, will be equivalent to that of the people who follow him (in sinfulness) without their sins being diminished in any respect”.

[Muslim Book # 06, Chapter 34, Hadith # 6470].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Al-Ahzab Ayat 48. “And obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and harm them not (till you are ordered). And put your trust in Allah” Invitation’ and `Call’ stand to mean here that someone induces others to virtue or seduces to sin by means of his speech or action. We come to know from this Hadith that one who becomes a medium for either of them is given a reward or punishment respectively by Allah (SWT).
