59. Al-Hashr – Decoding The Quran – Ahmed Hulusi


“59. Al-Hashr – Decoding The Quran – Ahmed Hulusi”

In regards to the merit of 21st through 24th verses of Surah Al-Hasr the Rasul of Allah (saw) says:

“If he who reads the end of the chapter al-Hashr during the day or night reaches the end of his term and is to die, if he dies during the day he will go to Paradise for reciting it during the day, and if he does during the night he will go to Paradise for reciting it during the night.” (This is the section that begins with ‘Huwallahulladhee la ilaha illa Hu…’).

Another hadith says:

“Whoever says ‘Audhu billahis sami’il alimi minash shaytanrrajeem’ three times in the morning and then recites the last three verses of the chapter al-Hashr, Allah will appoint seventy thousand angels for him who will pray for his forgiveness until the night. If that person dies that day he will die a martyr. If he dies at night, again, he will die a martyr.”

Audhu billahi minash shaytanirrajeem”

Bismi Llaahi l-raḥmaani l-raḥeem

By the one who is denoted by the name Allah (who created my being with His Names in accord with the meaning of the letter ‘B’), the Rahman, the Rahim.

1. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies (tasbih) Allah (effectuates their servitude by manifesting the Names through the functions they serve).

2. It is He who drove out of their homes those among the people of the book who denied the knowledge of the reality, and who had gathered for war (before the war even began)… You never thought they would leave (their homes)… And they thought their fortresses would protect them against Allah! But Allah came to them from where they least expected and cast terror into their hearts! They pulled down their homes with their own hands and with the hands of the believers! Take a lesson from this, O you who have insight!

3. If Allah had not prescribed exile for them, He would surely have afflicted them with suffering in this world. But there is the suffering of the Fire for them in the eternal life.

4. For they separated themselves from Allah and His Rasul… And whoever severs his tie from Allah (denies the Names comprising his essence – his spirit – and his eternal life to come, and confines his existence to his mortal physical body) – then indeed, Allah is severe in retribution (Shadid al-Iqab)!

5. Whatever you have cut down of their (those who wanted to go to war) palm trees or left standing on their roots, it was by the permission of Allah (B-iznillah) for Him to disgrace and debase those with corrupt faith.

6. As for the spoils Allah gave to His Rasul from them, you neither spurred a horse nor rode a camel for them! But Allah directs His Rasuls upon whom He wills. Allah is Qadir over all things.

7. And the spoils Allah gave to His Rasul from the towns that were conquered without war are for the Rasul, his relatives, the orphans, the needy and the travelers… (Thus it has been decreed) so that (wealth) is not passed on only among the rich among you! Take whatever the Rasul gives you and refrain from what he forbids you… Protect yourselves from Allah (for He will most definitely subject you to the consequences of your deeds). Indeed, Allah is severe in recompense.

8. (Those spoils) are for the needy emigrants who have been expelled from their homes, seeking the bounty and pleasure of Allah and supporting Allah and His Rasul… They are the truthful!

9. And those who were settled in that city (Medina) and adopted the faith before them (the emigrants) love those who migrate to them. They harbor no desire or need in their hearts for what has been given (to the emigrants). Even if they are needy themselves, they give them (the emigrants) preference over themselves. Those who protect themselves from their own stinginess and ambitions, they are the truly successful ones.

10. Those who come after them say, “Our Rabb, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and leave no ill thought or emotion in our hearts for the believers… Our Rabb! Indeed, you are the Ra’uf, the Rahim.”…
