[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 05 Dec 2013 (01 Safar 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[26].Surah Al-Naml [The Ants]

Ayat 15. And indeed Allah gave knowledge to Dawud PBUH(David) and Sulaiman PBUH(Solomon), and they both said: "All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has preferred us above many of His believing slaves!"

Tafseer of Surah Al Naml (The Ants) Ayat 15. We gave (in the past) knowledge to David and Solomon: And they both said: "Praise be to Allah, Who has favored us above many of his servants who believe!” "Knowledge" means such knowledge as leads up to the higher things in life, the Wisdom that was shown in their decisions and judgments, and the understanding that enabled them to fulfill their mission in life. They were both just men and prophets of Allah. The Bible, as we have it, is inconsistent: on the one hand it calls David "a man after God's own heart" (I Samuel, 13:14and Acts 13:22); and the Christians acclaim Christ as a son of David; but on the other hand, horrible crimes are ascribed to him, which, if he had committed them, would make him a monster of cruelty and injustice. About Solomon, too, while he is described as a glorious king, there are stories of his lapses into sin and idolatry. The Muslim teaching considers them both to be men of piety and wisdom, and high in spiritual knowledge. They ascribed, as was proper, their knowledge, wisdom, and power to the only true Source of all, Allah. 

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, "The superiority of the learned over the devout worshipper is like my superiority over the most inferior amongst you (in good deeds).'' He [SAWW](PBUH) went on to say, "Allah, His angels, the dwellers of the heaven and the earth, and even the ant in its hole and the fish (in water) supplicate in favors of those who teach people knowledge.''

[At-Tirmidhi Hadith 2685].  

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat15indeed Allah gave knowledge”Alim (learned person) here means scholar of the Qur'an and Hadith is the best person to convey the Message of Allah which was sent through his Messengers, Alim is the one who adheres to Faraid and Sunnah and remains busy in learning and imparting knowledge. `Abid (devout worshipper) is one who spends most of his time in the worship of Allah. The benefit of his voluntary prayer and remembrance of Allah is restricted to his own self while the benefit of knowledge of the scholar reaches others also. Hence, of the two, the latter is far superior. If Salat is mentioned with reference to Allah, it denotes "Allah's Grace with Mercy;'' if it is mentioned with reference to the angels, it denotes "to pray for forgiveness;'' and if it is mentioned with reference to other creatures - men, animals, etc., - then it means prayer and supplication. Thus, Allah graces that person with His Mercy who teach people the beneficial knowledge, i.e., the knowledge of Islam; angels pray to Allah to forgive his (or her) sins; and other creatures pray for his (or her) well-being. In this way, this Hadith stresses the distinction of religious scholars and highlights the esteem in which they are held by Allah, His angels and His other creatures.
