75. Al-Qiyamah

75.1 Musa b. Abi ‘A’ishah (رضي الله عنه) said

A man used to pray on the roof of his house. When he recited the verse

﴾ أليس ذلك بقادر على أن يحيي الموتى ﴿

“Is not He able to bring the dead to life?” (75:40)

he would say: ”Glory be to You, then, why not?” They asked him about it, and he replied: “I heard it from the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم)”.

Abu Dawud said : Ahmad (b. Hanbal) said: It is pleasing to me that one should recite in the obligatory prayer those supplications which have occurred in the Quran.

Sunan Abi Dawud 884

75.2 Narrated Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه)

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) said: When one of you recites “By the fig and the olive” (Surah 95) and comes to its end

 ﴾ أليس الله بأحكم الحاكمين ﴿

“Is not Allah the best judge?” (95:8),

he should say: “Certainly, and I am one of those who testify to that.” When one recites “I swear by the Day of Resurrection” (Surah 75) and comes to

 ﴾ أليس ذلك بقادر على أن يحيي الموتى ﴿

“Is not that one able to raise the dead to life? (75:40),

he should say: “Certainly.” And when one recites “By those that are sent” (Surah 77), and comes to

﴾ فبأي حديث بعده يؤمنون ﴿

“Then in what message after that will they believe? ” (77:50),

he should say: “We believe in Allah.”

The narrator Isma’il (ibn Umayyah) said: I beg to repeat (this tradition) before the Bedouin (who reported this tradition) so that I might see whether he (was mistaken).

He said: My nephew, do you think that I did not remember it? I performed sixty hajj (pilgrimages); there is no hajj but I recognize the camel on which I performed it.

Sunan Abi Dawud 887

Narrated Ibn `Abbas (رضي الله عنه)

(As regards) Allah’s Statement:

﴾ لا تحرك به لسانك لتعجل به ﴿

“Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith.” (75:16)

When Gabriel revealed the Divine Inspiration in Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم), the Prophet moved his tongue and lips, and that state used to be very hard for him, and that movement indicated that revelation was taking place. So Allah revealed in Surat Al-Qiyama which begins: ‘I do swear by the Day of Resurrection…’ (Surah 75) the Verses:

 لا تحرك به لسانك لتعجل به ﴿

﴾ إن علينا جمعه وقرآنه

‘Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith. It is for Us to collect it (Qur’an) in your mind, and give you the ability to recite it by heart. (75:16-17)

Ibn `Abbas added: It is for Us to collect it (Qur’an) (in your mind), and give you the ability to recite it by heart means, “When We reveal it, listen. Then it is for Us to explain it,” means, ‘It is for us to explain it through your tongue.’ So whenever Gabriel came to Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) ‘ he would keep quiet (and listen), and when the Angel left, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) would recite that revelation as Allah promised him.

Sahih al-Bukhari Vol. 6, Book 60, Hadith 451

Ibn Abbas narrated (رضي الله عنه)

Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) said, “Whosoever recites Surah Al- Waqi’ah every night will be protected from poverty and need. Whosoever recited Surah Al-Qiyamah every night, will come before Allah on the Day of Judgement and his face will be shining like the moon of the fourteenth night.”
