Surah Ar-Rum Ayat 19 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (12 August 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[30].Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans]

Ayat 19. He (Allah) brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus shall you be brought out (resurrected).

Tafseer of Surah Al Rum (The Romans) Ayat 19. It is He Who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living, and Who gives life to the earth after it is dead: and thus shall ye be brought out (from the dead). From dead matter Allah’s creative act produces life and living matter, and even science has not yet been able to explain the mystery of life. Life and living matter again seem to reach maturity and again die, as we see everyday. No material thing seems to have perpetual life. But again we see the creative process of Allah constantly at work, and the cycle of life and death seems to go on. The earth itself, seemingly so inert, produces vegetable life at once from a single shower of rain, and in various ways sustains animal life. Normally it seems to die in the winter in northern climates, and in a drought everywhere, and the spring revives it in all its glory. Metaphorically many movements, institutions, organizations, seem to die and then to live again, all under the wonderful dispensation of Allah. So will our personality be revived when we apparently die on this earth, in order to reap the fruit of this, our probationary life.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “If Allah afflicts punishment upon a nation, it befalls the whole population indiscriminately and then they will be resurrected and judged according to their deeds.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 09, Chapter 88, Hadith # 224]

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans] Ayat 19. “Allah brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living” When Allah’s punishment comes to pass, it does not distinguish between the upright and the wicked. However, the pious people will be saved from punishment after their death while the wicked ones will be punished in Hell. May Allah save us from all types of punishments.
