Surah Ar-Rum Ayat 21 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (14 August 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[30].Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans]

Ayat 21. And among His (Allah’s) Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.

Tafseer of Surah Al Rum (The Romans) Ayat 21. And among His Signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. This refers to the wonderful mystery of sex. Children arise out of the union of the sexes. And it is always the female sex that brings forth the offspring, whether female or male. And the father is as necessary as the mother for bringing forth daughters. Unregenerate man is pugnacious in the male sex, but rest and tranquility are found in the normal relations of a father and mother dwelling together and bringing up a family. A man’s chivalry to the opposite sex is natural and God-given. The friendship of two men between each other is quite different in quality and temper from the feeling which unspoilt nature expects as between men and women. There is a special kind of love and tenderness between them. And as woman is the weaker vessel that tenderness may from a certain aspect be likened to mercy, the protecting kindness which the strong should give to the weak (see also 4:1)

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Aas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “The world is but a (quick passing) enjoyment; and the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman”.

[Muslim Book # 08, Chapter 37, Hadith # 3465].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans] Ayat 21. “And among His (Allah’s) Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy” This Hadith mentions the qualities of a virtuous woman. When her husband looks at her, she pleases him; when he orders her, she obeys him; and when he is absent, she guards herself (chastity) and the property of her husband. (Abu Dawud and Nasa’i). This Hadith stresses the fact that if one wants success in this world and the Hereafter, he should select a pious wife. Rather than going after her beauty, lineage and wealth, one should give preference to her Faith over all other considerations. If he chooses a woman who is faithful to her Deen and strictly adheres to the Sharia’s, she would be a source of blessing for him in this life and the Hereafter.
