Surah Luqman Ayat 33 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (13 Oct 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[31].Surah Luqman [Luqman]

Ayat 33. O mankind! Be afraid of your Lord (by keeping your duty to Him and avoiding all evil), and fear a Day when no father can avail aught for his son, nor a son avail aught for his father. Verily, the Promise of Allah is true, let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah.

Tafseer of Surah Luqman Ayat 33. O mankind! do your duty to your Lord, and fear (the coming of) a Day when no father can avail aught for his son, nor a son avail aught for his father. Verily, the promise of Allah is true: let not then this present life deceive you, nor let the Chief Deceiver deceive you about Allah. On the Day of Reckoning no one can help another. The most loving father cannot help his son be a substitute for him, and vice versa. Each will have his own personal responsibilities. The Chief Deceiver is the Power of Evil. It may make us forget that Time is fleeting and delude us by suggesting that the Reckoning may not come, whereas it is certain to come, because Allah’s promise is true. We must not play with Time nor be deceived by appearances. The Day may come today or tomorrow or when we least expect it (Cf. 35:5).

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) used to supplicate: “O Allah! To You I have submitted, and in You do I believe, and in You I put my trust, to You do I turn, and for You I argued. O Allah, I seek refuge with You through Your Power; there is none worthy of worship except You Alone; that You safeguard me against going astray. You are the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists; the One Who never dies, whereas human beings and jinn will all die”.

[Muslim Book 35, Chapter 17, Hadith # 6561].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Luqman Ayat 33. “Verily, the Promise of Allah is true, let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah” This Hadith mentions the importance of Dua and faith in Allah, inducement for having trust in Him and the distinction of people who have these qualities. The Chief Deceiver Satan deceives you about Allah. On the Day of Reckoning no one can help another.
