Surah Yaseen Ayat 34 & 35 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (09 April 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 34. And We have made therein gardens of date-palms and grapes, and We have caused springs of water to gush forth therein.

Ayat 35. So that they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands made it not. Will they not, then, give thanks?

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 34. And We produce therein orchard with date palms and vines, and We cause springs to gush forth therein: Date palms and vines stand as symbols for fruit trees of all kinds, these being the characteristic fruits of Arabia . Grain was mentioned in the last verse; fruit is mentioned now. All that is necessary for food and the satisfaction of the choicest palate is produced from what looks like inert soil, fertilized by rain and springs. Here is wonderful evidence of the artistry and providence of Allah. Ayat 35. That they may enjoy the fruits of this (artistry): It was not their hands that made this: will they not then give thanks? Literally, eat (akala). Cf. 7:19 and 5:66. The same wide meaning of profit, satisfaction, and enjoyment may be attached to the word “eat” in verse 33 yesterday. Man may till the soil and sow the seed, but the productive forces of nature were not made by man’s hands. They are the handiwork and artistry of Allah, and are evidence of Allah’s providence for His creatures.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Ayyub (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ[SAWW](PBUH) said, “He who observes As-Saum (the fasts) in the month of Ramadan, and also observes As-Saum for six days in the month of Shawwal, it is as if he has observed As-Saum for the whole year.”

[Muslim Book 06, Chapter 36, Hadith # 2614]

Lesson : According to the formula that there is at least ten-fold reward for every virtue, the Saum of one month (Ramadan) is equivalent to the Saum of ten months. If one also observes six days of Saum of Shawwal, they will be equal to the Saum of two months. Thus, one becomes eligible for the reward of one full years’ Saum. He who makes it a permanent feature is like one who observes Saum throughout his life. He will be considered by Allah as one who observes Saum permanently. Although voluntary in nature, they are highly important. One can observe these six-day Saum at a stretch or with intervals, but their observance one after the other at the beginning of the month is better. Similarly, if a person has missed some Saum of Ramadan due to illness, travelling etc., he should first make up the shortfall and then observe the voluntary six-day Saum of Shawwal.
