Surah Al-Ahzab Ayat 73 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (03 Jan 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 73. So that Allah will punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the men and women who are Al-Mushrikun (the polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH). And Allah will pardon (accept the repentance of) the true believers of the Islamic Monotheism, men and women. And Allah is Ever Oft ­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Tafseer of Surah Al Ahzab (The Confederates) Ayat 73. (With the result) that Allah has to punish the Hypocrites, men and women, and the Unbelievers, men and women, and Allah turns in Mercy to the Believers, men and women: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Man’s generic Covenant, which flowed from his exercising the option given him, choosing Will, Forbearance, Love, and Mercy, made it necessary that breach of it should carry its own punishment. Breach of it is here classed under two heads: those who betray their Trust act either as Hypocrites or as Unbelievers. Hypocrites are those who profess Faith but bring not forth the fruits of Faith. Unbelievers are those who openly defy Faith, and from whom therefore no fruits of Faith are to be expected. Those who remain firm to their Faith and their Covenant will receive the aid of Allah’s Grace; their faults and weaknesses will be cured: and they will be made worthy of their exalted Destiny. For Allah is Oft-Returning and Most Merciful. So ends a Surah which deals with the greatest complications and misunderstandings in our throbbing life here below, and points upwards to the Great Achievement, the highest Salvation.

*These are the last Ayats of 33rd Surah of Al-Quran Surah Al-Ahzab; this Surah contained 73 Ayats, Insha Allah from tomorrow 34th Surah of Al-Quran Surah Saba will starts.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH), “The deceased is tortured in his grave for bewailing over him.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 02, Chapter 23, Hadith # 379]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Al-Ahzab Ayat 73. “So that Allah will punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the men and women who are Al-Mushrikun” “Bewailing” is wailing over the dead. It is weeping loudly for the deceased describing his noble qualities or the problems created by his death. Wailing causes trouble to the deceased if he willed his heirs to do so, or in his own life he behaved in the same manner and his family members were following his style of mourning at his death. But if the deceased had forbidden his relatives from wailing over his death and they do it despite his warning against doing so, then the deceased will not suffer any torment on their wailing because his intention and training have no connection with it. The Quranic injunction in this matter is absolutely clear: “No one laden with burdens can bear another’s burden.” (17:15).
