(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


قُلْ مَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْأَجْرٍ إِلَّا مَن شَآءَ أَن يَتَّخِذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِۦ سَبِيلًا 57  وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى ٱلْحَىِّ ٱلَّذِى لَا يَمُوتُ وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِهِۦ وَكَفَىٰ بِهِۦ بِذُنُوبِ عِبَادِهِۦ خَبِيرًا 58

57.  Say: I ask of you no reward for this, save that whoso will may choose a way unto his Lord.


58.  And trust thou in the Living One Who dieth not, and hymn His Praise. And He sufficeth as the Knower of His bondmen’s sins –

57.  Qul  maaa  ‘as-‘alukum  ‘alayhi  min  ‘ajrin  ‘illaa  man  shaaa-‘a  ‘any-yattakhiza  ‘ilaa  Rabbihii  Sabiilaa.


58.  Wa  tawakkal  ‘alal-Hayyil-lazii  laa  yamuutU  wa  sabbih  bi-HamdiH.  Wa  kafaa  biHii  bi-zunuubi  ‘ibaadiHii  Khabiiraa.



It was described earlier that the mankind is such a careless person who forgot his Lord and has been worshiping such things which neither have power to benefit him and nor those can hurt him. For startling him from the negligence, Prophets of Allaah Almighty (peace be upon them) were sent, but he conceived that they were also selfish like him (Let us flee to Allaah), and he accused them falsely that “while they have no any special quality then why should he admit them as guide? They too have been striving for acquiring wealth and property, honor and strength. They wish that the people should obey them, produce gifts, offerings and vows before them, so that they may command the people and enjoy”.


In this verse, it is being commanded to the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Put their misunderstanding away by saying clearly that! I do not ask any reward of you. I am not necessitous of anything from your earnings. The only object of mine is that I should guide the human beings unto that path which leads towards Allaah Almighty. And whosoever is desirous of that path, I should convey him its Sign and teach about the Way of going on that path.


Then it is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): You should trust in That Who is the Living One, Who will never die, and hymn His Praise every time in these words “SubhaanAllaahi  wa  bi-HamdiHii, SubhaanAllaahil  ‘Aziim”. And you should not worry concerning the sins of His bondmen. He knows about their wrong deeds very well. His knowledge and Power is sufficient to reward or punish against their good or wrong deeds.
