Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 46 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (07 May 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 46. And you (O Muhammad SAWW PBUH) were not at the side of the Tur (Mount) when We did call, [it is said that Allah called the followers of Muhammad SAWW PBUH, and they answered His Call, or that Allah called Musa (Moses)]. But (you  SAWW PBUH are sent) as a mercy from your Lord, to give warning to a people to whom no warner had come before you, in order that they may remember or receive admonition.

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 46. Nor was thou at the side of (the Mountain of) Tur when Allah called (to Moses). Yet (art thou sent) as Mercy from thy Lord, to give warning to a people to whom no warner had come before thee: in order that they may receive admonition. These people were Quraysh. ‘Though thou didst not see how Moses was invested with the prophetic office at Mount Tur, thou hast had similar experience thyself, and We have sent thee to Quraysh to warn them of all their sins, and to repent and come into the Faith’.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “My parable and that of yours is like a man who kindled a fire. When it was illuminated all around him, the moths and grasshoppers began to fall therein. He tried to push them away, but they overcame him and jumped into it. I am catching hold of your waist ties (to save you) from fire, but you slip away from my hands”.

[Muslim Book 030, Chapter 06, Hadith # 5672].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 46. “But (you  SAWW PBUH are sent) as a mercy from your Lord” This Hadith mentions the extreme kindness which the Prophet (PBUH) had for the welfare of his followers. It also mentions the misfortune of those who would become the fuel of Hell for not accepting Islam despite the utmost affection and ardor of the Prophet (PBUH) to bring them in the fold of Islam. People who fail to accept Islam would fall in the Hellfire in the same way moths fall in the fire.
