Surah Al Naml Ayat 89 & 90 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (26 March 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 89. Whoever brings a good deed (i.e. Belief in the Oneness of Allah along with every deed of righteousness), will be better than it’s worth, and they will be safe from the terror on that Day.

Ayat 90. And whoever brings an evil (deed) (i.e., Shirk polytheism, disbelief in the Oneness of Allah and every evil sinful deed), they will be cast down (prone) on their faces in the Fire. (And it will be said to them) “Are you being recompensed for anything except what you used to do?”

Tafseer of Surah Al Naml (The Ants) Ayat 89 & 90. If any do good, good will (accrue) to them there from; and they will be secure from terror that Day. And if any do evil, their faces will be thrown headlong into the Fire: “Do ye receive a reward other than that which ye have earned by your deeds?” Headlong: It may be that the very things of which we were proudest, which we considered foremost in our present order of the world, will be the first to go into the Fire, as they are but the window-dressing (i.e., faces) of Evil. There will be no punishment except as has been deserved by actual conduct in the present life of probation.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “If any one of you forgetfully eats or drinks (while observing fasting) he should complete his Saum (fasting), for Allah has fed him and given him to drink.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 03, Chapter 31, Hadith # 154].

Lesson : This Hadith tells us of a kindness and convenience of Islam that during the Saum if a person inadvertently does any such thing which destroys his Saum, i.e., eating, drinking, cohabitation with wife, etc., his Saum will remain intact due to forgetfulness, provided one abandons the act as soon as he remembers that he is observing Saum . He needs not make any expiation for such a Saum.

The prayer cited in the text of this Hadith is one of them.
