Surah Saba Ayat 50 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (16 Feb 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[34].Surah Saba [Sheba]

Ayat 50. Say (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH).): “If (even) I go astray, I shall stray only to my own loss. But if I remain guided, it is because of the Inspiration of my Lord to me. Truly, He is All Hearer, Ever Near (to all things).”

Tafseer of Surah Saba’ (Sheba) Ayat. 50. Say: “If I am astray, I only stray to the loss of my own soul: but if I receive guidance, it is because of the inspiration of my Lord to me: it is He Who hears all things, and is (ever) near.” If it could possibly be supposed that the Prophet was a self-deceived visionary, it would affect him only, and could not fail to appear in his personality. But in fact he was steady in his constancy and Faith, and he not only went from strength to strength, but won the enduring and wholehearted love and devotion of his nearest and dearest and of those who most came into contact with him. How was this possible, unless he had the Truth and the inspiration of Allah behind him? This is the fifth and last argument in this passage.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Musa Al-Ashari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We accompanied The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) in a journey, and when we climbed up a height, we proclaimed aloud: “La ilaha illallah (There is no true god except Allah)” and “Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest).” The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) admonished us saying, “O people take it easy. He Whom you are calling is not deaf or absent. He is with you (i.e., by His Knowledge), He is Hearing and He is Near.”

[Muslim Book 35, Chapter 13, Hadith # 6528].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Saba Ayat 50. “Truly, He is All Hearer, Ever Near (to all things).” This Hadith tells us that in the pronouncement of the fundamental testification of Islam: “La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah)” (Tahlil) – and His Magnification: “Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest)” (Takbir) – the voices of the Companions became a bit louder during a journey. The Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) disapproved of it and commanded them not to put themselves to hardship by remembering Allah in a loud voice, and directed to do that calmly in a dignified, low voice.
