English Translation of Al-Quran

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

Ayat 33. ‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) will they (the true followers who did the good deeds) enter, therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments there will be of silk (i.e. in Paradise).

Ayat 34. And they will say: “All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has removed from us (all) grief. Verily, our Lord is indeed Oft­ Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (good deeds and to recompense).

Tafseer of Surah Fatir Ayat 33 and 34. Gardens of Eternity will enter: therein they will They be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments there will be of silk. “The Garden” signifies their environment: all they see about them will give them comfort, rest, and satisfaction, and a feeling of beauty and dignity. The jewels and clothes signify their personal external state: here, again, everything will give them a sense of beauty and dignity, comfort, rest, and satisfaction. And finally, most important of all, comes their internal state, where again they will have the same sense of beauty, dignity, comfort, rest, and satisfaction: this is indicated by their words of Praise (verses 34-35). Cf. 18:31 and 22:23 . Ayat 34. And they will say: “Praise be to Allah, who has removed from us (all) sorrow: for our Lord is indeed Oft-Forgiving Ready to appreciate (service): Cf. above, 35:30. Note how beautifully the argument is rounded off. In verse 30 they were told that “Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate service”. Now they have reached the Goal, and they have found the Promise profoundly true. All their hopes are fulfilled, and their sorrows ended.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) came to visit Saad bin Ubadah (May Allah be pleased with him) who presented bread and olive oil to him. The Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) ate it and said, “The observers of fast have broken their fast with you (this is the literal translation, but the meaning is: `May Allah reward you for providing a fasting people with food to break their fast’); the pious people have eaten your food and the angels invoked blessings on you.”

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 3854]. 

Lesson: The word “Aftara” is informative in nature, but it is used in the sense of a prayer. Thus, what it denotes is “May Allah give you the reward of one who arranges for the Iftar (breaking the Saum) of somebody.” Thus, it induces one to hospitality according to his means.
