Surah Luqman Ayat 26 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (06 Oct 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[31].Surah Luqman [Luqman]

Ayat 26. To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Verily, Allah, He is Al­-Ghani (Rich, Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.

Tafseer of Surah Luqman Ayat 26. To Allah belong all things in heaven and earth: verily Allah is He (that is) free of all wants, worthy of all praise. Cf. above, 31:12. There began the argument about showing gratitude to Allah, introducing Luqman’s teaching and philosophy. Such gratitude is shown by our understanding of His love and doing our duty to Him by serving our fellow-men. For Allah Himself is Free from all wants and is in no way dependent on our service. That argument has been illustrated in various ways. But now we are told that it can never be completed, for any human tongue or human resources can be adequate either to praise Him or to expound His Word.

English Translation of Hadith  

Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [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 the jinn of you to stand in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more than a needle decrease the sea if put into it. O My slaves, it is but your deeds that I reckon for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good (i.e., in the Hereafter) praise Allah and let him who finds other than that blame no one but himself.”’.

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

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Luqman Ayat 26. To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Verily, Allah, He is Al­-Ghani (Rich, Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise” 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.
