Author: Tafsier Suratul Hadeed by Abdur Tahman As Sadee
Shaykh Abdur-Rahman Bin Nasir As-Sa’dee, may Allah have mercy on him, gives a comprehensive Tafsir of this beautiful chapter from Quran, Surah Hadeed.
a small excerpt from the book:
[His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth] The dominion, the creation, and the servants, He administers over them according to what He wills of His predetermined and legislative commands, which proceed in accordance with His divine wisdom.
[And to Allâh return all the matters (for decision)] of deeds and the doers of those actions. The servants will be displayed before him (Allâh). Thus, evil will be distinguished from good. Therefore, he will repay the good doer for his good and the evil doer for his evil.
[He merges the night into day, and merges the day into the night] That is to say: the night comes towards the day; and the night covers them (i.e. the creation) with its darkness. Hence, they become tranquil and calm.
Then the day comes towards the night. Thus, whatever of darkness disappears on the earth and the universe sheds light. The servants set out to their affairs and livelihoods.
Allâh contiues to roll the night into the day and the day into the night, and he alternates them in increase and decrease, in length and shortness, because of that (previously mentioned), the seasons are established, and times are kept in order; and there occurs of benefits that which happens by way of that (i.e., With the day, and night entering upon each other).
Blessed is Allâh, the Lord of all that exists, and exalted is the beneficent and most generous, who bestows apparent and hidden blessings upon His Servants.
[And he has full knowledge of whatsoever is in the breasts] That is to say: (he has full knowledge) of whatever is in the creations’ hearts. So He grants success to whomever He knows is deserving of that and forsakes who He knows is not suitable for His guidance.
