Surah Yaseen Ayat 47 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (15 April 2024)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 47. And when it is said to them: “Spend of that with which Allah has provided you,” those who disbelieve say to those who believe: “Shall we feed those whom, if Allah willed, He (Himself) would have fed? You are only making a plain error.”

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 47. And when they are told, “Spend ye of (the bounties) with which Allah has provided you,” the Unbelievers say to those who believe: “Shall we then feed those whom, if Allah had so willed, He would have fed, (Himself)? – Ye are in nothing but manifest error.” To selfish men, the good may make an appeal, and say: “Look Allah has given you wealth, or influence, or knowledge, or talent. Why not spend some of it in charity, i.e., for the good of your fellow-creatures?” But the selfish only think of themselves and laugh at such teaching to scorn. They are too full of themselves to have a corner in their hearts for others. “If,” they say, “Allah gave them nothing, why should we?” There is arrogance in this as well as blasphemy: arrogance in thinking that they are favored because of their merits, and blasphemy in laying the blame of other people’s misfortunes on Allah. They further try to turn the tables on the Believers by pretending that the Believers are entirely on the wrong track. They forget that all men are on probation and trial: they hold their gifts on trust; those apparently less favored, in that they have fewer of this world’s goods, may be really more fortunate, because they are learning patience, self-reliance, and the true value of things ephemeral which is apt to be very much exaggerated in men’s eyes.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, Hazrat Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Among the inmates of Hell, a person who had led the most luxurious life in this world will be brought up on the Day of Resurrection and dipped in the Fire and will be asked: `O son of Adam! Did you ever experience any comfort? Did you happen to get any luxury?’ He will reply: `By Allah, no, my Rubb.’ And then one of the people of Jannah who had experienced extreme misery in the life of this world will be dipped in Jannah. Then he will be asked: `O son of Adam! Did you ever experience any misery? Have you ever encountered difficulty?’ He will say: “By Allah, not my Rubb, I neither experienced misery nor passed through hardship”.

[Muslim Book 39, Chapter 11, Hadith # 6738].

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Yaseen Ayat 47. And when it is said to them: “Spend of that with which Allah has provided you,” those who disbelieve say to those who believe: “Shall we feed those whom, if Allah willed, He (Himself) would have fed? This Hadith also induces one to work for the life of the Hereafter, as the amenities of this world which one strives hard to attain, and for which one violates the injunctions of Shari`ah, will be forgotten with a glimpse of the Hell-fire. Therefore, the sensible course is that one should adopt a way of life which is full of true faith and good deeds so that one becomes eligible for the eternal blessings and joys of the life of the Hereafter.
