Surah Luqman Ayat 25 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (05 Oct 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[31].Surah Luqman [Luqman]

Ayat 25. And if you (O Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH) asks them: “Who has created the heavens and the earth,” they will certainly say: “Allah.” Say: “All the praises and thanks be to Allah!” But most of them know not.

Tafseer of Surah Luqman Ayat 25. If thou ask them, who it is that created the heavens and the earth. They will certainly say, “(Allah)”. Say: “Praise be to Allah.” But most of them do not understand. Cf. 23:84-89, and 29:61. Men will acknowledge that Allah created the heavens and the earth, and yet fail to understand the love and goodness of Allah in continuing to cherish and maintain them with His gifts. Even if they allow this, they sometimes yet fall short of the corollary, that He is the only One to be worshipped, and run after their own false gods in the shapes of their fancies and lusts. They do not do the duties which, if they rightly understood their own nature and position, they should take delight in doing. This ejaculation expresses our satisfaction that at least this is recognized that the Creator of the whole world is Allah. It is a pity that they do not go further and recognize other facts and duties (see the last note).

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Said Al-Khudri and Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “If a person says: `La ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbar (There is no true god except Allah and Allah is Greatest)’, his Rubb responds to him and affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, and I am the Greatest.’ When he says: `La ilaha illallahu Wahdahu la sharika Lahu (There is no true god except Allah, the One, He has no partner).’ Allah (SWT) affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I. I have no partner.’ When he says: `La ilaha illallahu Lahul mulku wa Lahul-hamdu (the sovereignty belongs to Him and all the praise is due to Him).’ He (SWT) affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, Mine is the praise and to Me belongs the sovereignty.’ When he says: `La ilaha illallahu wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah (There is no true god except Allah, and there is no might and power but with Allah).’ He (SWT) affirms: `(Yes!) There is no true god except I, and there is no might and power but with Me.”’ The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) added, “He who recites this during his illness and dies, will not be touched by the Fire (Hell).”

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 3430].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Luqman Ayat 25. “”All the praises and thanks be to Allah!” But most of them know not” There is always a great certainty that Allah will respond to a supplication which springs from a sincere, veracious heart. One should, therefore, pray for a patient with full conviction and reassurance of heart. Moreover, the Prophet’s prayers have special effect and grace and therefore their original wordings should be uttered.
