English Translation of Al-Quran

[36].Surah Yaseen [Yaseen]

Ayat 79. Say: (O Muhammad ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) “He (Allah) will give life to them Who created them for the first time! And He is the All-Knower of every creation!”

Ayat 80. He, Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! You kindle therewith.

Tafseer of Surah Yaseen, Ayat 79 and 80, Say, “He will give them life Who created them for the first time! for He is Well-versed in every kind of creation! Allah’s creative artistry is evident in every phase of nature, and it works every minute or second. The more man understands himself and the things within his reach, the more he realizes this. How foolish, then, for anyone to set imaginary limits to Allah’s power? There are more ways of creation than are dreamt of in man’s imagination. Ayat 80. “The same Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! ye kindle therewith (your own fires)! Even older and more primitive than the method of striking fire against steel and flint is the method of using twigs of trees for the purpose. In the E.B., 14th edition, 9:262, will be found a picture of British Guyana boys making a fire by rotating a stick in a round hole in a piece of wood lying on the ground. The Arab method was to use a wooden instrument called the Zinad. It consisted of two pieces to be rubbed together. The upper was called the ‘Ajar or Zand, and the lower the Markh. The Markh is a twig from a kind of spreading tree, the Cynanchuin viminale, of which the branches are bare, without leaves or thorns. When they are tangled together, and a wind blows, they get ignited and strike fire (Lane’s Arabic Lexicon). In modern Arabic Zand is by analogy applied to the flint piece used for striking fire with steel.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Hudhaifah  (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ [SAWW](PBUH) used to say in the morning: “Allahumma bika asbahna, wa bika Amsaina, wa bika nahya, wa bika namutu, wa ilaikan-nushur (O Allah! With Your Power we have come to the morning, with Your Power we come to the evening, with Your Power we live, and we die, and to You will we return).” In the evening he would say: “Allahumma bika Amsaina, wa bika nahya, wa bika namutu, wa ilaikan-nushur (O Allah! With Your Power, we have come to the evening, by You do we live, by You do we die, and to You is the return).”

[Al-Bukhari Book 01, Chapter 04 Hadith # 247].
