Surah Al-Ankabut Ayat 07 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (14 June 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 7. Those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism) and in Messenger Muhammad SAWW (PBUH), and do not apostate because of the harm they receive from the polytheists], and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall remit from them their evil deeds and shall reward them according to the best of that which they used to do.

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 7. Those who believe and work righteous deeds,- from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them, and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds. In striving to purify our Faith and Life, we are enabled to avoid the consequences of our misdeeds for Allah will forgive any evil in our past, purify any tendencies towards evil which we may have inherited from that past, and help to the attainment of a Future based on the best of what we have done rather than on the poor average of our own merits. The atonement or expiation is by Allah’s Mercy, not by our merits or the merits or sacrifices of anyone else.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) when he said, “O boy! I will instruct you in some matters. Be watchful of Allah (Commandments of Allah), He will preserve you. Safeguard His Rights, He will be ever with you. If you beg, beg of Him Alone; and if you need assistance, supplicate to Allah Alone for help. And remember that if all the people gather to benefit you, they will not be able to benefit you except that which Allah had foreordained (for you); and if all of them gather to do harm to you, they will not be able to afflict you with anything other than that which Allah had pre-destined against you. The pens had been lifted and the ink had dried up”. Another narration is: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Safeguard the Commandments of Allah, you will find Him before you. Remember Him in prosperity and He will remember you in adversity. Be sure that which you miss, was not to hit you; and what hits you, was never to miss you. Remember that the Help of Allah is obtained with patience, and relief emerges after distress, prosperity follows adversity, and hardship is followed by ease”.

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2516].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 07. “believe [in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism) and in Messenger Muhammad SAWW (PBUH), and do not apostate because of the harm they receive from the polytheists]” This Hadith brings out 3 points.

  1. No one has the power to change the Decision of Allah.
  2. Whatever trouble one has to suffer in this world, it does not last forever. Every trouble is followed by prosperity, pleasure and happiness.
  3. One should never ask other than Allah for anyone’s help in a supernatural way because it amounts to ascribing partnership with Allah. If a person is mindful of the Rights of Allah, then Allah, in return, takes care of his needs and helps him.
