Surah Al Naml Ayat 61 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (08 March 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[27].Surah Al-Naml [The Ants]

Ayat 61. Is not He (better than your gods) Who has made the earth as a fixed abode, and has placed rivers in its midst, and has placed firm mountains therein, and has set a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet water). Is there any ilah (god) with Allah? Nay, but most of them know not.

Tafseer of Surah Al Naml (The Ants) Ayat 61. Or, Who has made the earth firm to live in; made rivers in its midst; set thereon mountains immovable; and made a separating bar between the two bodies of flowing water? (can there be another) god besides Allah. Nay, most of them know not. The terra firma, the flowing water, and the cycle of water circulation-sea, vapor, clouds, rain, rivers, and sea again-all one and yet all distinct, with a sort of wonderful barrier between saltwater and freshwater: can man see all this and yet be ignorant of Allah?

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Sahl bin Saad (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Were this world worth a wing of mosquito, He would not have given a drink of water to an (Kafir) infidel.”

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2320].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 61. “Is there any ilah (god) with Allah? Nay, but most of them know not” This Hadith makes it clear that the world and its wealth and riches has no significance to Allah. Thus, it should not have much significance to the believers. It should be considered a means to reform the Afterlife, or a place of trial.
