English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]
Ayat 72. If Allah made day continuous for you till the Day of Resurrection, who is an ilah (a god) besides Allah who could bring you night wherein you rest? Will you not then see? Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 72. Say: See ye? If Allah were to make the day perpetual over you to the Day of Judgment, what God is there other than Allah, who can give you a night in which ye can rest? Will ye not then, see? In verse 71 of this Surah was mentioned a “perpetual Night,” for which the faculty of “hearkening” was appropriate, as all light was shut out. In this verse a perpetual Day is mentioned, for which the faculty of “seeing” is appropriate. Through many doors can the higher knowledge enter our souls? Shall we not use each of them as the occasion demands?
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, Hazrat Wabisah bin Mabad (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I went to Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) and he asked me, “Have you come to inquire about piety?” I replied in the affirmative. Then he said, “Ask your heart regarding it. Piety is that which contents the soul and comforts the heart, and sin is that which causes doubts and perturbs the heart, even if people pronounce it lawful and give you verdicts on such matters again and again.”
[Masnad Ahmad, Imam Ahmad Hadith # 228/4]
Lesson : There are two points about this Hadith. First, it is one of the miracles of Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) who discovered the nature of the question before it was put to him. Second, man’s heart is the biggest guide to him and he, therefore, should keep his heart illuminated with the light of Faith so as to continue receiving guidance from it.
