[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 23 Dec 2013 (19 Safar 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[27].Surah Al-Naml [The Ants]

Ayat  42. So when she came, it was said (to her): "Is your throne like this?" She said: "(It is) as though it were the very same." And [Sulaiman PBUH (Solomon) said]: "Knowledge was bestowed on us before her, and we were submitted to Allah (in Islam as Muslims before her)."

Ayat  43. And that which she used to worship besides Allah has prevented her (from Islam), for she was of a disbelieving people.

Tafseer of Surah Al Naml (The Ants) Ayat 42 & 43. So when she arrived, she was asked, "Is this thy throne?" She said, "It was just like this; and knowledge was bestowed on us in advance of this, and we have submitted to Allah (in Islam)." Queen of Saba stands the test. She knows it was her throne, yet not exactly the same, for it was now much better. And she is proud of her good fortune, and acknowledges, for herself and her people, with gratitude, the light which was given to them by Allah, by which they recognized Allah's prophet in Solomon and received the true Religion with all their will and heart and soul. And he diverted her from the worship of others besides Allah. for she was (sprung) of a people that had no faith. Some Commentators and Translators adopt an alternative construction for the last clause of the last verse and the first clause of this verse. They understand the former to be spoken by Solomon and to mean, 'we had knowledge of Allah's Message and accepted it before her.' They understand the latter to mean, 'the worship of others besides Allah diverted her (from the true Religion).' If we accept the construction adopted in this Translation, the visit to Solomon confirmed the true Faith of Bilqis and prevented her from lapsing into her ancestral false worship.

 

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Abu Bakar asked, "O Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH)! Teach me some words so that I may recite them in the morning and in the evening.'' The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Recite these words: `Allahumma fatiras-samawati wal-ardi, `alimal-ghaibi wash-shahadati, Rabba kulli shai'in wa malikahu. Ash-hadu an la ilaha illa Anta, A’udhu bika min sharri nafsi, wa sharrish-Shaitani wa shirkihi (O Allah! Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of the hidden and the exposed! Rubb of everything and everyone. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but You. I seek Your Protection from the evil of my own self from the evil of Satan and from the evil of Shirk to which he calls).''' The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) added: "Recite these words in the morning and the evening and when you go to bed.''

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 1639 and At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 1639].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 43.” that which she used to worship besides Allah has prevented her (from Islam)” It is desirable to recite the invocations cited in the Hadith in the morning and the evening and also when one goes to bed and awakes. The purpose is that the concept of Allah's Providence and Divinity remains alive all the time in one's mind. With these words one seeks Allah's Protection in life and the Hereafter from things which are harmful. One also begs for his safety and guidance in this life and the Hereafter. This Hadith fully expresses one's recognition of Allah's Godhood and Lordship. .
