Surah Yaseen Ayat 69 & 70 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (25 April 2024)



English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 69. And Allah has not taught his messenger (Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH) poetry, nor is it meet for him. This is only a Reminder and a plain Qur’an.

Ayat 70. That may give warning to him who is living (a healthy minded believer), and that Word (charge) may be justified against the disbelievers (dead, as they reject the warnings).

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 69 to 70. We have not instructed the (Prophet) in Poetry, nor is it met for him: this is no less than a Message and a Quran making things clear: Cf. 26:224. Here “Poetry” is used as connoting fairy tales, imaginary descriptions, things futile, false, or obscure, such as decadent Poetry is, whereas the Qur’an is a practical guide, true and clear. Ayat 70. That it may give admonition to any (who are) alive, and that the charge may be proved against those who reject (Truth). “Alive”, both in English and Arabic, means not only “having physical life”, but having all the active qualities which we associate with life. In religious language, those who are not responsive to the realities of the spiritual world are no better than those who are dead. The Message of Allah penetrates the hearts of those who are alive in the spiritual sense. Cf. 28:63. If people reject Truth and Faith after they have been admonished and warned, the charge against them, of willful rebellion, is proved. They cannot then plead either ignorance or inadvertence.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Verily, Allah elevates some people with this Qur’an and abases others.”

[Muslim Book 04, Chapter 138, Hadith # 1780]

Lesson: as mentioned above in Surah Yaseen Ayat 70. That may give warning to him who is living (a healthy minded the believer), and that Word (charge) may be justified against the disbelievers (dead, as they reject the warnings)” Only such people will be elevated who act upon the teachings of the Qur’an and abstain from what is forbidden by Allah. The Muslims of the early centuries of Islam were blessed with great honor by Allah because they loved and applied the Qur’an. Because of this meaningful attachment with the Qur’an, they made great achievements in religious and worldly spheres. Those who neglected the teachings of Islam will be disgraced and humiliated. May Allah guide and enable us to re-establish our contact with the Qur’an so that we can regain our past glory. Exaltation and humiliation mentioned in the Hadith is bound to happen in both this life and the Hereafter.
