Surah Fatir Ayat 14 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (03 March 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 14. If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH), like Him Who is the All Knower (of each and everything).

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 14. If ye invoke them, they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen, they cannot answer your (prayer). On the Day of Judgment they will reject your “Partnership”. and none, (O man!) can tell thee (the Truth) like the One Who is acquainted with all things. False or imaginary objects of worship serve no purpose whatsoever. They cannot hear; if they could hear, they could not grant prayers or petitions. In fact, if they are real creatures, such as angels or deified human beings, they will very rightly repudiate any such worship that brings them into competition or “partnership” with Allah. Cf. 10:28 also 34:40-41. No false ideas or false impressions will remain when true values are restored. Why not then accept the Truth now in this life, and get on to the true path of Grace? None can tell you the Truth better than He Who is All-Wise and All-Knowing. Why not accept His Message and receive His guidance?

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “The most truthful statement a poet has ever made is the saying of Labid: Everything besides Allah is vain.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 05, Chapter 58, Hadith # 181]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Fatir Ayat 14. If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you.” 1. We learn from this Hadith that to compose, recite and quote good verses, as evidence, is permissible. 2. The Verse of Labid, quoted in this Hadith, is the same effect as the verdict of the Noble Qur’an: “Whatsoever is on (the earth) will perish.” (55:26). This Verse accepts the eternity of the Afterlife and the transitory nature of this world.
