Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 64, 65 & 66 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (22 May 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[28].Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]

Ayat 64. And it will be said (to them): “Call upon your (so-called) partners (of Allah), and they will call upon them, but they will give no answer to them, and they will see the torment. (They will then wish) if only they had been guided!

Ayat 65. And (remember) the Day (Allah) will call to them, and say: “What answer did you give to the Messengers?”

Ayat 66. Then the news of a good answer will be obscured to them on that day, and they will not be able to ask one another.

Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 64, 65 and 66. It will be said (to them): “Call upon your ´partners´(for help)” :they will call upon them, but they will not listen to them; and they will see the Penalty (before them); (how they will wish) ´if only they had been open to guidance! That Day (Allah) will call to them, and say: “What was the answer ye gave to the messengers?” Now we come to the examination of those who rejected or persecuted Allah’s Messengers on the earth. It may be the same men as those mentioned in 28: Ayat 62 to 64, but this is a different count in the charge. Then the (whole) story that Day will seem obscure to them (like light to the blind) and they will not be able (even) to question each other. In their utter confusion and despair their minds will be blank. The past will seem to them unreal, and the present unintelligible, and they will not even be able to consult each other, as every one’s state will be the same.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Ubadah bin As-Samit (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: e Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “He who bears witness that there is no true god except Allah, alone having no partner with Him, that Muhammad   [SAWW] is His slave and His Messenger, that `Isa (Jesus) is His slave and Messenger and he (Jesus) is His Word which He communicated to Maryam (Mary) and His spirit which He sent to her, that Jannah is true and Hell is true; Allah will make him enter Jannah accepting whatever deeds he accomplished”.

[Muslim Book 01, Chapter 11, Hadith # 043].

Another narration in Muslim is: e Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Whosoever testifies that there is no true god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah , Allah (SWT) saves him from the Fire (of Hell)”

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 64. “”Call upon your (so-called) partners (of Allah), and they will call upon them, but they will give no answer to them” This Hadith confirms that all Prophets of Allah were men and thus refutes those who attribute divinity to them and exclude them from the category of men or regard them a part of Allah, as Christians believes Prophet `Isa (Jesus to be Christ) by regarding him Allah or His son, or the Jews do Prophet `Uzair by venerating him as son of Allah. The misconception has also taken hold of a sect of the Muslims. They have invented the belief that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is “Light from the Light of Allah”. Thus, further considering being of him with Divine qualities. They exclude him from the category of men. This Hadith tells us that the belief that Prophets were men constitutes part of Faith and denial of it is the denial of a part of Faith and amounts to evasion from Tawheed – Oneness of Allah. The Prophet `Isa (Jesus) has been referred to in the Qur’an as “Kalimatullah” (the Word of Allah) (4:171). What these words really mean is that he was born in an unusual manner, without being fathered by anyone, only on the express fiat of Allah. This Hadith shows that a major sin does not cast a Muslim out of the fold of Islam, as is believed by certain deviant sects who have gone astray. Such a person does remain a Muslim and his eligibility for admission into Jannah also remains intact but his admission entirely depends on the pleasure of Allah. He may forgive a sinful Muslim and send him to Jannah even in the initial stage or keep him in Hell for some time and then send him to Jannah. Thus, when it is said that Muslims are protected against Hell, it means that they will not abide in Hell forever. It will be a temporary phase varying with his sins. When that punishment comes to an end, or even before it, when Almighty, Allah, wills, he will be removed from Hell to Jannah.
