Surah Fatir Ayat 23 & 24 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (07 March 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 23. You (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH), are only a warner (i.e. your duty is to convey Allah’s Message to mankind but the guidance is in Allah’s Hand).

Ayat 24. Verily! We have sent you with the truth (Al-Quran), a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner. And there never was a nation but a warner had passed among them.

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 23 and 24. Thou art no other than a warner. The function of a Prophet is to preach Allah’s Truth, to point out the right Way, to show men the need of repentance, and to warn them against the dangers which they incur by living a life of evil. He cannot compel them to accept the Truth or listen to the Message.

Ayat 24. Verily We have sent thee in truth, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner: and there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past).  It is Allah Who sends the Revelation. While there is warning in it for the heedless, there is good news (in Christian terms, the gospel) for those who listen and repent. The warning always came to all peoples before punishment.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Verily, Allah elevates some people with this Qur’an and abases others.”

[Muslim Book 04, Chapter 138, Hadith # 1780]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Fatir Ayat 24. Verily! We have sent you with the truth (Al-Quran), a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner.” Only such people will be elevated who act upon the teachings of the Qur’an and abstain from what is forbidden by Allah. The Muslims of the early centuries of Islam were blessed with great honor by Allah because they loved and applied the Qur’an. Because of this meaningful attachment with the Qur’an, they made great achievements in religious and worldly spheres. Those who neglected the teachings of Islam will be disgraced and humiliated. May Allah guide and enable us to re-establish our contact with the Qur’an so that we can regain our past glory. Exaltation and humiliation mentioned in the Hadith is bound to happen in both this life and the Hereafter.
