Surah Ar-Rum Ayat 26 & 27 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (19 August 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[30].Surah Ar-Rum [The Romans]

Ayat 26. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are obedient to Him.

Ayat 27. And He it is Who originates the creation, then will repeat it (after it has been perished), and this is easier for Him. His is the highest description (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable unto Him) in the heavens and in the earth. And He is the All ­Mighty, the All­ Wise.

Tafseer of Surah Al Rum (The Romans) Ayat 26 and 27. To Him belongs every being that is in the heavens and on earth: all are devoutly obedient to Him. All nature in Creation not only obeys Allah, but devoutly obeys Him, i.e., glories in its privilege of service and obedience. Why should we not do likewise? It is part of our original unspoilt nature, and we must respond to it, as all beings do, by their very nature. Ayat 27. It is He Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; and for Him it is most easy. To Him belongs the loftiest similitude (we can think of) in the heavens and the earth: for He is Exalted in Might, full of wisdom. Cf. 30:11 above, where the same phrase began the argument about the beginning and end of all things being with Allah. This has been illustrated by reference to various Signs in Creation, and now the argument is rounded off with the same phrase. Allah’s glory and Allah’s attributes are above any names we can give them. Human language is not adequate to express them. We can only form some idea of them at our present stage by means of Similitude and Parables. But even so, the highest we can think of falls short of the true Reality. For Allah is higher and wiser than the highest and wisest we can think of (Cf. 16:60).

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) delivered a Khutbah to us the likes of which I had never heard from him before. He said, “If you knew what I know, you would laugh a little and weep a lot”. Thereupon those present covered their faces and began sobbing.

[Al-Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Hadith # 493].

Another narration is: Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) heard of something about his Companions upon which he addressed them and said, “Jannah and (Hell) Fire were shown to me and I have never seen the like of this day in good and in evil. If you were to know what I know, you would laugh a little and weep much”. His Companions experienced such suffering on that day that had no equal. They covered their faces and began to weep. [Al-Bukhari].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Ar-Rum Ayat 26. “Whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are obedient to Him” We learn from this Hadith that Jannah and Hell do exist. The Prophet (PBUH) was shown both of them. 2. Excessive laughter is improper because it indicates that one is careless and forgetful of the Hereafter, while a Muslim is required to be all the time alert and careful about it. 3. To weep out of fear of Allah, is praiseworthy because it indicates that one’s heart is full of fear and he is worried about the Hereafter.
