[36].SurahYaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 20. And there came running from the farthest part of the town, a man, saying: “O my people! Obey the Messengers;

Ayat 21. “Obey those who ask no wages of you (for themselves), and who are rightly guided.

Ayat 22. “And why should I not worship Him (Allah Alone) Who has created me and to Whom you shall be returned.

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 20 to 22. Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, “O my people! Obey the messengers: While the wealthy, influential, and fashionable men in the city were doubtful of Allah’s providence and superstitiously believed in Chance and evil omens, the Truth was seen by a man in the outskirts of the City, a man held in low esteem by the arrogant. He had believed, and he wanted his City to believe. So, in Arabia, when the arrogant chiefs of Quraysh exiled the Prophet, it was men from Madman and from the outskirts, who welcomed him, believed in him, and supported his mission in every way. Ayat 21. “Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance. Prophets do not seek their own advantage. They serve Allah and humanity. Their hope lies in the good pleasure of Allah, to Whose service they are devoted. Cf. 10:72; 12:104; etc. Ayat 22. “It would not be reasonable in me if I did not serve Him Who created me, and to Whom ye shall (all) be brought back. The argument throughout is that of intense personal conviction for the individual himself, coupled with an appeal to his people to follow that conviction and get the benefit of the spiritual satisfaction which he has himself achieved. He says in effect: ‘how is it possible for me to do otherwise than to serve and adore my Maker? I shall return to Him, and so will you and all this applies to you as much as to me.’ Note how effective is the transition from the personal experience to the collective appeal.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Ubadah bin As-Samit (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) came out to inform us about the Night of Qadr but two Muslims were quarreling with each other. So, the Prophet said, “I came out to inform you about the Night of Qadr but such and such persons were quarreling, so the news about it had been taken away; yet that might be for your own good, so search for it on the 25th, 27th and 29th (of Ramadan).

[Al-Bukhari Volume 3, Book 32, Number 240].

Lesson : We learn from this Hadith that Suhur is a distinctive mark with which Allah has blessed the Muslim Ummah. We learn from this Hadith that Lailat-ul-Qadr occurs in any of the last three odd nights – 25th, 27th and 29th – of the last ten nights of Ramadan. Its exact date has not been revealed for the reason that people keep themselves awake for prayer for a larger number of nights. Had its date been fixed, people would have kept awake for prayer only on that night.
