Surah Fatir Ayat 25 & 26 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (08 March 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 25. And if they belie you (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH), those before them also belied. Their Messengers came to them with clear signs, and with the Scriptures, and the book giving light.

Ayat 26. Then Allah took hold of those who disbelieved, and how terrible was Allah’s denial (punishment)!

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 25. And if they reject thee, so did their predecessors, to whom came their messengers with Clear Signs, Scriptures and the Book of Enlightenment. The three things here mentioned are also mentioned in 3:184, The three things mentioned in the Text are: (1) Clear Signs (bayyinat); (2) Zubur, and (3) al Kitab al Munir. The signification of (1) as far as they relate to Jesus. In a more general sense, it means the clear evidence which Allah’s dealings furnish about a man of God having a true mission; e.g., Moses in relation to Pharaoh, (2) The word Zubur has been translated as scriptures. It comes from the root Zobam which implies something hard. The commentators are not agreed, but the prophetic writings which seemed to contemporaries difficult to understand may well be meant here. David’s psalms (Zabur, 4:163 and 21:105) may also come under this description. As to (3), there is no doubt about the literal meaning of the words, “the Book of Enlightenment”. But what does it precisely refer to? I take it to mean the fundamental guide to conduct-the clear rules laid down in all Dispensations to help men to lead good lives. All spiritual teaching center’s round the evidences of Allah in our lives, the sublime teaching of men of God, and the rules and laws which guide holy living. Ayat 26. In the end did I punish those who rejected Faith: and how (terrible) was My rejection (of them)! Cf. 22:44 and 34:45. The rejecters of Allah hardly realize the terrible consequences to them individually and collectively, if Allah’s grace is withdrawn from them and they are left to perish in their own sins and wrongdoing.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Verily, Allah gives respite to the oppressor. But when He seizes him, He does not let him escape.” Then he (PBUH)) recited, “Such is the Seizure of your Rubb when He seizes the (population of) towns while they are doing wrong. Verily, His Seizure is painful (and) severe”. (11:102).

[Al-Bukhari Book 06, Chapter 60, Hadith # 208]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Fatir Ayat 26. Then Allah took hold of those who disbelieved, and how terrible was Allah’s denial (punishment)! ” One should not take the respite for exemption because no one knows when respite granted by Him will come to an end and punishment will follow.
