I Qur’anic Verse of the Day


The Person of God


اَللّٰہُ لَاۤ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا ہُوَۚ اَلۡحَیُّ الۡقَیُّوۡمُ ۬ۚ لَا تَاۡخُذُہٗ سِنَۃٌ وَّ لَا نَوۡمٌ ؕ لَہٗ مَا فِی السَّمٰوٰتِ وَ مَا فِی الۡاَرۡضِ ؕ مَنۡ ذَا الَّذِیۡ یَشۡفَعُ  عِنۡدَہٗۤ اِلَّا بِاِذۡنِہٖ ؕ یَعۡلَمُ مَا بَیۡنَ اَیۡدِیۡہِمۡ وَ مَا خَلۡفَہُمۡ  ۚ وَ لَا یُحِیۡطُوۡنَ بِشَیۡءٍ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِہٖۤ اِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ ۚ وَسِعَ کُرۡسِیُّہُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَ الۡاَرۡضَ ۚ وَ لَا یَـُٔوۡدُہٗ حِفۡظُہُمَا ۚ وَ ہُوَ الۡعَلِیُّ  الۡعَظِیۡمُ. (255:2)


God, there is no other deity but He, the Living, the Sustainer. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. All that is in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him for someone except by His permission? He knows what lies before them and what is after them and without His will they cannot grasp any part of His knowledge. His dominion prevails in the heavens and the earth, and their protection does not fatigue Him and He is the Exalted, the Great One. (2:255)

عَنْ أبي سَعِيْدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ رَضْيِ اللّٰہُ عَنْهُ اِنَّ نَاسًا من الْأَنْصَارِ سَاَلُوا رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ ثُمَّ سَأَلُوهُ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ حتي نَفِدَ ما عِنْدَهُ فقال ما يَكُونُ عِنْدِي من خَيْرٍ فَلَنْ أَدَّخِرَهُ عَنْكُمْ وَمَنْ يَسْتَعْفِفْ يُعِفَّهُ اللّٰہ وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْنِ يُغْنِهِ اللّٰہ وَمَنْ يَتَصَبَّرْ يُصَبِّرْهُ اللّٰہ وما أُعْطِيَ أَحَدٌ عَطَاءً خَيْرًا وَأَوْسَعَ من الصَّبْرِ


Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri (rta) reported: “Some people from the Ansar asked [for charity] from God’s Messenger (sws). So, he gave it to them. They again asked and he again obliged until he was left with nothing. So, he said: ‘Whatever is with me of wealth I did not withhold from you. So, he who wants to become chaste, God will make him chaste; and he who showed contentment, God will grant him wealth and he who asks for patience from God, God will grant him patience and no person can be given a grant better and bigger than patience.”[1]

The Yoke of God


Come to me, all you who are troubled and weighted down with care, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you and become like me, for I am gentle and without pride, and you will have rest for your souls; For my yoke is good, and the weight I take up is not hard. (Matthew, 11:28-30)
