Surah Yaseen Ayat 12 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (30 March 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 12. Verily, We give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before (them), and their traces [their footsteps and walking on the earth with their legs to the mosques for the five compulsory congregational prayers, (travel to spread Quran, Sunnah, truthfulness and Allah’s Cause) and all other good and evil they did, and that which they leave behind], and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book.

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 12. Verily We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before and that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (of evidence). All this is possible, because there is the assurance of a Hereafter, in which Allah will be all-in-all, and evil will no longer bestride the world, as the term of its respite will have expired (Cf. 6:36 and 30:19). Our deeds, good and bad, go to Allah’s Judgement Seat before us. They will of course be brought to our account; but our account will also be swollen by the example we left behind us and the consequences of our deeds that will come into play or continue to operate after our earthly life has ceased. Our moral and spiritual responsibility is therefore much wider than affects our own person. Cf. 2:124. All our accounts will be exactly preserved as in a book of record.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Some of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) saw Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree) in their dreams in the last seven nights of Ramadan, whereupon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “I see that your dreams all agree upon the last seven nights. Whoever seeks it, let him seek it in the last seven nights.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 03, Chapter 32, Hadith # 232].

Lesson : “Tawat’at” linguistically means to step or walk on, that is, to place foot over the place where one’s fellow kept his foot. Here, it is used in the sense of correspondence. In other words, “I see that your dreams all agree upon the last seven nights” stands to mean “you had similar dreams”. This was done by showing all of them the (spectacle) of Lailat-ul-Qadr. On the strength of these dreams, the Prophet ﷺ (PBUH) said that Lailat-ul-Qadr should be sought in the last seven nights of Ramadan. The wisdom of keeping it secret is to keep people awake to engage in worship for a larger number of nights in this auspicious month.
