Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 36 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (28 April 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 36. Then when Musa (Moses) came to them (Pharaoh) with Our Clear Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they said: “This is nothing but invented magic. Never did we hear of this among our fathers of old.”

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 36. When Moses came to them with Our clear signs, they said: “This is nothing but sorcery faked up: never did we hear the like among our fathers of old!” This is what Moses was thinking of when he had said: “They may accuse me of falsehood”. To accuse the purest Truth of lying is a favorite trick of those whose chief stock in trade is deception and sorcery and catching the attention of the vulgar by arts adapted to their ignorant minds! ‘As to this higher talk of the worship of the One true God, why, our ancestors have worshipped power and patronage, as concentrated in Pharaoh, from the most ancient times!’

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Said Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “The best type of Jihad (striving in the way of Allah) is speaking a true word in the presence of a tyrant ruler.”

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 4344 and At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2174].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 36. “when Musa (Moses) came to them (Pharaoh) with Our Clear Ayat they said: “This is nothing but invented magic. Never did we hear of this among our fathers of old.” Also in Surah Taha Ayat 24.”“Go to Fir’aun (Pharaoh)! Verily, he has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant).” Jihad has many degrees. Preaching virtue is also Jihad. The most meritorious of all is the effort of communicating the Message of Allah to an unjust ruler. Similarly, if a society is so much given to a vice that no one can dare to utter a word against it, then to protest against it can also be reckoned as the best Jihad.
