Surah Fatir Ayat 15-16 & 17 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (04 March 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 15. O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah, but Allah is Rich (Free of all wants and needs), Worthy of all praise.

Ayat 16. If He will, He could destroy you and bring about a new creation.

Ayat 17. And that is not hard for Allah.

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 15, 16 and 17. O ye men! It is ye that have the need of Allah. but Allah is the One Free of all wants, worthy of all praise. What man that Allah should care for, instruct him, and send him special messengers to warn him of danger and harm? It is man that depends on Allah and has need of Him every moment of his life. Allah has no need of him, but He bestows His Grace on him as on all His creatures, out of His unbounded Mercy and loving kindness. If it were Allah’s Will, He could blot out man for his rebellion and create an entirely new world. Ayat 16. If He is so pleased, He could blot you out and bring in a New Creation. Ayat 17. Nor is that (at all) difficult for Allah. There is no limit to Allah’s creative power, nor is His creative energy anything rare or unusual. This is the force of the word ‘Aziz’ here. Allah’s creative energy is exercised every moment, and it is the normal condition in the universe.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Dharr Jandab bin Junadah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Allah, the Exalted, and Glorious, said; ‘O My slaves, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any man of you, that would not increase My domain a thing. O My slaves, were the first of you, and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any man of you, that would not decrease My domain in a thing.”.

[Muslim Book 032, Chapter 13, Hadith # 6246].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Fatir Ayat 15. O mankind! it is you who stand in need of Allah, but Allah is Rich (Free of all wants and needs)” This Hadith mentions the Power and Majesty of Allah and stresses that one should supplicate Allah for everything that one needs. From guidance to sustenance, the treasures of everything are with Him – the treasures which are unlimited and any withdrawal from them does not make any reduction in them. Similar is the case of His Sovereignty; it is not affected even if the whole universe supports or opposes them. Thus, it is in the interest of man that he should dedicate himself entirely to Allah and beg all his needs from Him and Him Alone.
