Surah Fatir Ayat 06 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (24 Feb 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[35].Surah Fatir [The Originator of Creation]

Ayat 6. Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He Shaitan (Satan) only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire.

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 6. Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire. Evil is our enemy and should be treated as such. It is really foreign to our nature, however much it may disguise itself to deceive us as our friend, or a part of our nature. Personifying the Spirit of Evil, we may say that he wants us to share in his own damnation. Shall we allow ourselves to fall into his snare?

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Musa Al-Ashari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH)said, “A person will be summoned with the one whom he loves”. [Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 73, Hadith # 191].

Another narration is: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) was asked; “What about a person who loves a people but cannot be with them?” (i.e., either he cannot attain their lofty position of righteousness or that he has not met with them in this life). The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) replied, “A person will be in the company of those whom he loves”.

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Fatir Ayat 06. “He Shaitan (Satan) only invites his Hizb (followers)” Besides bringing to eminence the high merit of entertaining the love for the pious persons, this Hadith tells us about the Mercy and Blessings of Allah which He will shower upon those who love the pious people. Because of this love, Allah will elevate even the inferior people and include them among those whom He loves. This Hadith also serves a warning that association and love with the impious people is extremely dangerous as one can meet the same bad end which is inevitable for them. May Allah save us from it.
