Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 04 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (30 March 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 4. Verily, Firaun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidun (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 4. Truly Pharaoh elated himself in the land and broke up its people into sections, depressing a small group among them: their sons he slew, but he kept alive their females: for he was indeed a maker of mischief. For a king or ruler to make invidious distinctions between his subjects, and specially to suppress or oppress any particular class of his subjects, is a dereliction of his kingly duties, for which he is responsible to Allah. Pharaoh and his clique were intoxicated with pride of race and pride of material civilization, and grievously oppressed the Israelites. Pharaoh decreed that all sons born to his Israelite subjects should be killed, and the females kept alive for the pleasure of the Egyptians. Moses was saved in a wonderful way, as related further.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said,  “Allah the Most High says: `From amongst my servants, the quicker the one is in breaking the Saum (fasting), the dearer is he to me.”

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 700].

Lesson : The person who breaks the Saum in its early time is best loved by Allah because he is a true follower of the Prophet  [SAWW]( (PBUH).
