English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]
Ayat 1. Tâ-Sîn-Mîm [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]
Ayat 2. These are Verses of the manifest Book (that makes clear truth from falsehood, good from evil, etc.).
Ayat 3. We recite to you some of the news of Musa AS (Moses) and Fir’aun (Pharaoh) in truth, for a people who believe (those who believe in this Qur’an, and in the Oneness of Allah).
Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) is Makki and contains 88 Ayats, Tafseer of Ayat 1 to 3. Ta. Sin. Mim. This is a combination of three Abbreviated Letters, as to which, generally, This particular combination occurs here and at the head of S. 26, while the intervening Surah 27 has it in the syncopated form Ta’Sin. None of the explanatory conjectures which 1 have seen carries conviction for me. If the letters stand for Tur Sinin ( Mount Sinai ) and Musa (Moses), whose story fills a large part of this Surah, why is the letter Mi m omitted in S. 27. where the same meaning would apply? There is, however, one fact to which I should like to draw attention, we should pursue our research, but we should never be dogmatic in such matters, as some Mysteries can never be solved by mere research. These are Verses of the Book that make (things) clear. We rehearse some of the story of Moses and Pharaoh in Truth, for people who believe. The part of the story of Moses told here is how Moses and his mother were guided in the child’s infancy, that even as he grew up, he might be prepared for his high destiny; how in youth he trusted Allah in the most awkward situations and sought his help; how he fled into exile, and yet found love and support because of his well-doing; and how, when he was called to this mission, he received Allah’s favor, which defeated all the plots of his enemies. Thus Allah’s Plan works continuously in the web of events. Those who have faith will thus see the hand of Allah in everything and welcome the light that conies to them by Revelation. With such a Faith there is no room for Chance or blind Fate.
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Salman bin `Amir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) saying, “When one of you breaks his Saum (fasting), let him break it on dates; if he does not have any, break his fast with water for it is pure.”
