[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 21 Dec 2013 (17 Safar 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[27].Surah Al-Naml [The Ants]

Ayat 40. One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said: "I will bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye!" then when [Sulaiman PBUH (Solomon)] saw it placed before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his own self, and whoever is ungrateful, (he is ungrateful only for the loss of his own self). Certainly! My Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), Bountiful."

Tafseer of Surah Al Naml (The Ants) Ayat 40. Said one who had knowledge of the Book: "I will bring it to thee within the twinkling of an eye!" Then when (Solomon) saw it placed firmly before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord!-to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! and if any is grateful, truly his gratitude is (a gain) for his own soul; but if any is ungrateful, truly my Lord is Free of all Needs, Supreme in Honour !" The symbolic meaning still continues. The big 'Ifrit had boasted of his brute strength, and his reliability. But this is not enough to transform a power (throne) based on materialism into one based on inward knowledge, knowledge of the heart and spirit, the sort of knowledge that comes from the Book of the Grace of Allah, the spirit of truth and benevolence which is the invisible magic of Prophet of Allah. Even if worldly power and common honesty may be able to effect some good, it will take a comparatively long time, while the magic of spiritual love acts instantaneously. Solomon was thankful to Allah for he had men endowed with such power, and he had the throne of Bilqis transported to his Court and transformed as he desired, without Bilqis even knowing it. If Solomon had been ungrateful to Allah, i.e., if he had worked for his own selfish or worldly ends, he could have used the brute strength of the "Ifrit to add to his worldly strength and glory. Instead, he uses the higher magic of the Book-or the Spirit-to transform the throne of Bilqis for her highest good, which means also the highest good for her subjects, by the divine Light. He had the two alternatives, and he chooses the better, and he thus shows his gratitude to Allah for the Grace He had given him. Man's gratitude to Allah is not a thing that benefits Allah, for Allah is high above all needs; it benefits a man's soul and gives him higher rank in the spiritual world. Per contra, man's ingratitude will not detract from Allah's Glory and Honour or the value of Allah's generous gifts to man: for Allah as supreme in honour, glory and generosity. Karim in Arabic involved all three significations.


English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Iyad bin Himar (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Allah has revealed to me that you should humble yourselves to one another. One should neither hold himself above another nor transgress against another.''

[Muslim Book 40, Chapter 17, Hadith # 6856]. 

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 40 “Grace of my Lord to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his own self”. To treat each other humbly, leniently and lovingly is understood as humility. One, under this principle, is also required not to despise anybody on the basis of wealth, social distinction and lineage. Moreover, one should also not adopt an unkind attitude towards others. Besides, if Allah has bestowed honour on somebody, he is supposed to be grateful to Him, instead of behaving disrespectfully towards people and subjecting them to unkindness and tyranny.

[PF:172987] I have learnt that...

I've learnt that...

  • you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

  • no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.

  • it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

  • it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

  • you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.

  • no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.

  • you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

  • we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

  • there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it.

  • true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

  • just because someone doesnt love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

  • maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

  • no matter how good a friend someone is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

  • no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

  • just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other.And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

  • we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

  • you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

  • there are many ways of falling and staying in love.

  • no matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar, you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.

  • the people you care most about in life are taken from you to soon.

  • although the word "love" can have many different meanings, it loses value when overly used.

  • love is not for me to keep, but to pass on to the next person I see.

  • there are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it.

  • even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

  • every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch-holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

  • I still have a lot to learn......
