Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 40 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (02 May 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 40. So, We seized him and his hosts, and We threw them all into the sea (and drowned them). So, behold what was the end of the Zalimun [wrong-doers, polytheists and those who disbelieved in the Oneness of their Lord (Allah), or rejected the advice of His Messenger Musa AS (Moses)].

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 40. So, We seized him and his hosts, and We flung them into the sea: Now behold what was the end of those who did wrong! Pharaoh and his hosts were drowned in the sea in their pursuit of the Israelites: see 7:130-136. They are the type of men who lead-only to Destruction.

They invite, not to Peace and Happiness, but to the Fire of Wrath, mutual Envy, and Hatred.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Musa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Allah, the Exalted, will continue to stretch out His Hand in the night so that the sinners of the day may repent, and continue to stretch His Hand in the daytime so that the sinners of the night may repent, until the sun rises from the west”.

[Muslim Book 05, Chapter 037, Hadith # 6644].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 40. “So We seized him and his hosts, and We threw them all into the sea (and drowned them)” This Hadith confirms an essential Attribute of Allah, i.e., the Hand which He stretches out anytime He wishes without drawing similarity to it, nor interpretation. Such was the attitude of the pious predecessors with regards to all the essential Attributes of Allah. It is deduced from this Hadith that if one commits a sin during any hour of day or night, he should immediately seek the forgiveness of Allah as a result.
