English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 10. Of mankind are some who say: "We believe in Allah," but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allah, they consider the trial of mankind as Allah’s punishment, and if victory comes from your Lord, (the hypocrites) will say: "Verily! We were with you (helping you)." Is not Allah Best Aware of what is in the breast of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinns).

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 10. Then there are among men such as say, "We believe in Allah; but when they suffer affliction in (the cause of) Allah, they treat men´s oppression as if it were the Wrath of Allah. And if help comes (to thee) from thy Lord, they are sure to say, "We have (always) been with you!" Does not Allah know best all that is in the hearts of all creation? Cf. 9:56 and other passages where the cunning of the Hypocrites is exposed. The man who turns away from Faith in adversity and only claims the friendship of the Faithful when there is something to be gained by it, is worthy of a double condemnation: first because he rejected Faith and Truth, and secondly because he falsely pretended to be one of those whom he feared or hated in his heart. But nothing in all Creation is concealed from Allah.

Hadith: 15 April 2014 (14 Jamadi us`Sani 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking one, and the walking one will be better than the running one, and whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it."

[Al-Bukhari Volume 9, Book 88, Number 202].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 10. “but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allah, they consider the trial of mankind as Allah’s punishment” There would be such disasters and agony in the world that people will prefer hide in peace to save their life under such conditions. This situation will arise before the Day of Resurrection, and the Day of Judgment will dawn on such wicked people.

Qur’an: 14 April 2014 (13 Jamadi us`Sani 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 9. And for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah and other items of Faith) and do righteous good deeds, surely, Allah shall make them enter in (the entrance of) the righteous (i.e. in Paradise).

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 9. And those who believe and work righteous deeds,-them shall Allah admit to the company of the Righteous. The picking up again of the words which began verse 7 above shows that the same subject is now pursued from another aspect. The expiation or reward which was first spoken of is not so much a tangible thing as a restoration of status. The striving in righteous deeds will restore fallen man to the society of the Righteous-the ideal Fellowship described in Surah 04 : Ayat 69.

Hadith: 14 April 2014 (13 Jamadi us`Sani 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Musa Al-Ashari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH)said, "A person will be summoned with the one whom he loves".

[Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 73, Hadith # 191].

Another narration is: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) was asked; "What about a person who loves a people but cannot be with them?” (i.e., either he cannot attain their lofty position of righteousness or that he has not met with them in this life). The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) replied, "A person will be in the company of those whom he loves".

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 09. “Allah shall make them enter in (the entrance of) the righteous (i.e. in Paradise)” Besides bringing to eminence the high merit of entertaining the love for the pious persons, this Hadith tells us about the Mercy and Blessings of Allah which He will shower upon those who love the pious people. Because of this love, Allah will elevate even the inferior people and include them among those whom He loves. This Hadith also serves a warning that association and love with the impious people is extremely dangerous as one can meet the same bad end which is inevitable for them. May Allah save us from it.

Qur’an: 13 April 2014 (12 Jamadi us`Sani 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 8. And Allah have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents, but if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do.

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 8. We have enjoined on man kindness to parents: but if they (either of them) strive (to force) thee to join with Me (in worship) anything of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not. Ye have (all) to return to me, and I will tell you (the truth) of all that ye did. That is, no certainty, in virtue of the spiritual light. In matters of faith and worship, even parents have no right to force their children. They cannot and must not hold up before them any worship but that of the One True God. Children and parents must all remember that they all have to go before Allah’s tribunal, and answer, each for his own deeds. In cases where one set of people have lawful authority over another set of people (as in the case of parents and children), and the two differ in important matters like that of Faith, the latter are justified in rejecting authority: the apparent conflict will be solved when the whole truth is revealed to all eyes in the Final Judgment.

Hadith: 13 April 2014 (12 Jamadi us`Sani 1435) 2 Attachments

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported A person came to : The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) and asked, "Who among people is most deserving of my fine treatment?” He [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Your mother". He again asked, “Who next?” "Your mother", the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) replied again. He asked, "Who next?” He (the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH)) said again, "Your mother.” He again asked, "Then who?” Thereupon he [SAWW](PBUH) said,” Then your father.”

In another narration: "O Messenger of Allah! Who is most deserving of my fine treatment?” He [SAWW](PBUH) said, "Your mother, then your mother, then your mother, then your father, then your nearest, then nearest".

[Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 73, Hadith # 02]

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 08. “Allah have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents” This Hadith tells us that the rights of the mother are three times more important than that of the father for the reasons that:

1 She is weaker than the father.

2. The following three troubles are borne exclusively by the mother while the father does not share them with her:

a) She carries the baby in her womb for nine months,

b) The labor pain which she suffers.

c) Two years’ period of suckling which disturbs her sleep at night and affects her health, She has also to be very cautious in her food for the welfare of the baby.

Qur’an: 12 April 2014 (11 Jamadi us`Sani 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 7. Those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism) and in Messenger Muhammad SAWW (PBUH), and do not apostate because of the harm they receive from the polytheists], and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall remit from them their evil deeds and shall reward them according to the best of that which they used to do.

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 7. Those who believe and work righteous deeds,- from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them, and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds. In striving to purify our Faith and Life, we are enabled to avoid the consequences of our misdeeds for Allah will forgive any evil in our past, purify any tendencies towards evil which we may have inherited from that past, and help to the attainment of a Future based on the best of what we have done rather than on the poor average of our own merits. The atonement or expiation is by Allah’s Mercy, not by our merits or the merits or sacrifices of anyone else.
