Glorified be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

                                                           

إِذْ قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِأَهْلِهِۦٓ إِنِّىٓ ءَانَسْتُ نَارًا سَـَٔاتِيكُم مِّنْهَا بِخَبَرٍ أَوْ ءَاتِيكُم بِشِهَابٍ قَبَسٍ لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَصْطَلُونَ 7

فَلَمَّا جَآءَهَا نُودِىَ أَنۢ بُورِكَ مَن فِى ٱلنَّارِ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهَا وَسُبْحَٰنَ ٱللَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ 8

7.  (Remember) when Moses said unto his household: Lo! I spy afar off a fire; I will bring you tidings thence, or bring to you a burning brand that ye may warm yourselves.

 

8.  But when he reached it, he was called, saying: Blessed is Whosoever is in the fire and Whosoever is round about it! And Glorified be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!

7.  ‘Iz  qaala  Muusaa  li-‘ahlihiii  ‘inniii  ‘aanastu  naaraa.  Sa-‘aa-tiikum-minhaa  bi-khabarin    ‘aw  ‘aatiikum-  bishihaabin-  qabasil-la-‘allakum  tastaluun.

 

8.  Falammaa  jaaa-‘ahaa  nuu-diya  ‘am- buurika  man-  fin-Naari  wa  man  hawlahaa.  Wa  SubhaanAllaahi  Rab-bil-  ‘Aalamiin.

Commentary

It was commanded earlier that you should let the worldly people do their worldly works. They have gone astray, do useless and absurd works. O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! You receive the Qur’an, which is a Book of high dignity, from Allaah Almighty Who is Aware of all philosophies and Knower of all matters. In Holy Qur’an, there are all such commandments which are useful for the mankind for always. You will find from it those Blessings which are ready for those people who believe in the life after death and the Day of Resurrection, and those afflictions which are ready for those who disbelieve. The End of wrongdoers is not good even in this world too as it is evident from the story of Moses (peace be upon him) and Pharaoh.

 

Listen! When Moses (peace be upon him) was passing along with his family through Holy Valley during night hours, weather was very cold and they forgot the path also in the darkness. Moses (peace be upon him) looked around and said to his household: I see a light which seems burning fire. I go there. I will ask concerning the path if I found someone, otherwise I will come back along with a burning charcoal, so that you may warm yourselves. But when he came to it (seeming the fire), he was called, “This is Bright Fire, of which this Light is. Blessed is Whosoever is at the Fire and whoever is around it (you). And Exalted is Allah Almighty, Who is the Lord of the Worlds. He shows His Splendor in the form of Light and Fire, but He Himself is Pure and Superior to all such things.
