Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 26 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (18 April 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 26. And said one of them (the two women): “O my father! Hire him! Verily, the best man for you to hire is the strong, the trustworthy.”

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 26. Said one of the (damsels): “O my (dear) father! Engage him on wages: truly the best of men for thee to employ is the (man) who is strong and trusty”…. A little time passes. A guest after all cannot stay forever. They all felt that it would be good to have him with them permanently. The girl who had given her heart to him had spoken their unspoken thoughts. Why not employ him to tend the flocks? The father was old, and a young man wanted to look after the flocks. And-there may be other possibilities. Strong and trusty: Moses had proved himself to be both, and these were the very qualities which a woman most admires in the man she loves.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Zaid bin Thabit (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We took Suhur (pre-dawn meal) with the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) and then we stood up for (Fajr) Salat (prayer). It was asked: “How long was the gap between the two?” He replied: “The time required for the recitation of fifty Ayat.”

[Al-Bukhari Book # 01, Chapter # 10, Hadith # 550].

Lesson : We learn from this Hadith that Suhur should be taken towards the end of its timing. This is the Sunnah of the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH). One should, however, take care that it is done before dawn.
