[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 23 Nov 2013 (18 Muharam 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[26].Surah Ash-Shuara [The Poets]

Ayat 210. And it is not the Shayatin (devils) who have brought it (this Qur'an) down,

Ayat 211. Neither would it suit them, nor they can (produce it).

Ayat 212. (Quran is saved by Allah from all Evils) Verily, they have been removed far from hearing it.

Tafseer of Ayat 210 to 212. No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation The Quran): When anything extraordinary happens, there are always people desirous of putting the worst construction on it, and saying that it is the work of the evil ones, the devils. So when the Qur'an came with its Message in wondrous Arabic, its enemies could only account for its power by attributing it to evil spirits! Such a beneficent message can never suit the purposes of the evil ones, nor would it be in their power to produce it. In fact Good and Evil are poles asunder, and Evil cannot even hear words of Good, of tender Pity for sinners and Forgiveness for the penitent! It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it). Indeed they have been removed far from even (a chance of) hearing it.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: Some people asked the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) about soothsayers. He [SAWW](PBUH) said, "They are of no account.'' Upon this they said to him, "O Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) ! But they sometimes make true predictions.'' Thereupon the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "That is a word pertaining to truth which a jinn snatches (from the angels) and whispers into the ears of his friend (the soothsayers) who will then mix more than a hundred lies with it.''

[Muslim Book 26, Number 5535].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Ash-Shuara Ayat 210."it is not the Shayatin (devils) who have brought it (this Qur'an) down" This Hadith brings out the following points: Kahin (soothsayer), Munajjim (astrologer) and Arraf (foreteller) have similar characteristics but with a slight difference. All of them make predictions about the future. Kahin would overhear some jinn and disclose the secret to people which would sometimes prove true, because the jinn's source of information was Satan who sometimes stole away some information from the angels. But after the annunciation of the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) it was made impossible for jinns and satans to overhear anything in the skies. Moreover, Kahin and others of his ilk would make predictions on the basis of certain signs and circumstantial evidence which could go wrong or right. This is so even to this day. Astrological prediction is also a form of foretelling but this is often wrong. Al-Irafah, or what is known to be as divination is also an indication of some future occurrence on the basis of certain causes and events. All the three occult arts supplement each other and also take the help of similar other things. In other words, these are all different forms of soothsaying. Geomancy also tries to tell about the invisible future. At-Tarq is the art of taking omen by striking birds with gravel on their wings or by throwing barley, etc., before them. In the latter formula, if a bird flies towards the right side, it would be a good omen; and if it goes towards the left it will be a bad one. All such things are unlawful and have been strictly forbidden by Islam. If anything predicted by these means comes by chance true, it does not furnish any justification for their validity.
