English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 7. Indeed, the Word (of punishment) has proved true against most of them, so they will not believe.

Ayat 8. Verily! We have put iron collars on their necks, iron collars reaching to chins, so that their heads are forced up.

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 7 and 8. The Word is proved true against the greater part of them: for they do not believe. Cf. 7:30 , and 17:16. If people deliberately and obstinately refuse “to believe”, i.e., to receive guidance and admonition, the result must be that Allah’s grace and mercy are withdrawn from them. Their own perversity inevitably blocks up all channels for their correction. Ayat 8. We have put yokes round their necks right up to their chins, so that their heads are forced up (and they cannot see). Man’s misdeeds inevitably call forth the operation of Allah’s Law, and therefore the result is in Quranic language attributed to Allah. The result of man’s willful disobedience is now described in a series of metaphors. (1) Refusal of Allah’s Light means less and less freedom of action for man: the yoke of sin is fastened round man’s neck, and it gets more and more tightened, right up to the chin. (2) The head is forced up and kept in a stiff position, so that the mind becomes befogged. Moral obliquity taints the intellect. According to the Sanskrit proverb, “When destruction comes near, understanding is turned upside down.” According to the Latin proverb, “Whom God wishes to destroy, He first makes demented.” In other words, iniquity not only is folly, but leads deeper and deeper into folly, narrowness of vision, and blindness to the finer things of life. (3) This state of deprivation of Grace leads to such a decline in spiritual vitality that the victim can neither progress nor turn back, as explained in the next verse.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: When the last ten nights (of Ramadan) would begin, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ[SAWW](PBUH) would keep awake at night (for prayer and devotion), awaken his family and prepare himself to be more diligent in worship.

[Al-Bukhari Book 03, Chapter 32, Hadith # 241].

Lesson : as mentioned above the entire month of Ramadan is a spring season for virtues, worship and obedience of Allah, but its last ten days are the peak of this season of worship. Therefore, one must strive hard in the last ten days and nights of this month to follow the practice of the Prophet ﷺ[SAWW](PBUH), to seek the Pleasure of Allah and to attain the benefits of Lailat-ul-Qadr, which occurs during this period. The Prophet ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) used to make special arrangement for observing Itikaf, and we must also follow this practice of his.
