A ‘oothu billaahi minash-Shaytaanir-rajeem. Allaahu laa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom, laa ta’khuthuhu sinatun wa laa nawm, lahu maa fis-samaawaati wa maa fil-‘ardh, man thai-lathee yashfa’u ‘indahu ‘illaa bi’ithnih, ya’lamu maa bayna ‘aydeehim wa maa khalfahum, wa laa yuheetoona bishay’im-min ‘ilmihi ‘illaa bimaa shaa’a, wasi’a kursiyyuhus samaawaati wal’ardh, wa laa ya’ooduhu hifdhuhumaa, wa Huwal- ‘Aliyyul- ‘Adheem.
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan the outcast. - Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never encompass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

 The Frosty Wind (Surah Al-‘Imran 3:117)

The Parable of What the Disbelievers Spend in This Life 

Allah gave a parable for what the disbelievers spend in this life, as Mujahid, Al-Hasan and As-Suddi said. 

The likeness of what they spend in this world is the likeness of a wind of Sir; a frigid wind, as Ibn ‘Abbas, `Ikrimah, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak, Ar-Rabi` bin Anas and others have said. `Ata’ said that Sir, means, `cold and snow.’ Ibn `Abbas and Mujahid are also reported to have said that Sir means, `fire’. This latter meaning does not contradict the meanings we mentioned above, because extreme cold weather, especially when accompanied by snow, burns plants and produce, and has the same effect fire has on such growth. 

It struck the harvest of a people who did wrong against themselves and destroyed it, by burning. This Ayah mentions a calamity that strikes produce that is ready to harvest, destroying it by burning and depriving its owner of it when he needs it the most. Such is the case with the disbelievers, for Allah destroys the rewards for their good deeds in this life, just as He destroyed the produce of the sinner because of his sins. Both types did not build their work on firm foundations, 

And Allah wronged them not, but they wronged themselves. 

Reference: Tafsir ibn Kathir (abridged) English version.

 The Rope (Surah Al-‘Imran 3:103)

The Necessity of Holding to the Path of Allah and the Community of the Believers 

Allah said, 
And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves. It was said that, 

to the Rope of Allah refers to Allah’s covenant, just as Allah said in the following Ayah, 

Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and from men;) [Surah Al-‘Imran 3], in reference to pledges and peace treaties. 

Allah’s statement 

and be not divided among yourselves, orders sticking to the community of the believers and forbids division. There are several Hadiths that require adhering to the Jama’ah (congregation of believers) and prohibit division. Muslim recorded that Abu Hurayrah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 

It pleases Allah for you to acquire three qualities and displeases Him that you acquire three characteristics. It pleases Him that you worship Him Alone and not associate anything or anyone with Him in worship, that you hold on to the Rope of Allah altogether and do not divide, and that you advise whoever Allah appoints as your Leader. The three that displease Him are that you say, `It was said,’ and, `So-and-so said,’ asking many unnecessary questions and wasting money. 

Allah said, 

and remember Allah’s favor on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His grace, you became brethren. This was revealed about the Aws and Khazraj. During the time of Jahiliyyah, the Aws and Khazraj were at war and had great hatred, enmity and ill feelings towards each other, causing long conflicts and battles to occur between them. When Allah brought Islam, those among them who embraced it became brothers who loved each other by Allah’s grace, having good ties for Allah’s sake and helping each other in righteousness and piety. Allah said, 

He it is Who has supported you with His Help and with the believers. And He has united their hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allah has united them)[Surah Al-Anfal 8,63], 

until the end of the Ayah. Before Islam, their disbelief had them standing at the edge of a pit of the Fire, but Allah saved them from it and delivered them to faith. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) reminded the Ansar [from both Aws and Khazraj] of this bounty when he was dividing the war booty of Hunayn. During that time, some Ansar did not like the way the booty was divided, since they did not get what the others did, although that was what Allah directed His Prophet to do. The Messenger of Allah gave them a speech, in which he (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 

O Ansar! Did I not find you misguided and Allah directed you to guidance because of me Were you not divided beforehand and Allah united you around me Were you not poor and Allah enriched you because of me Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked them a question, they would answer, “Indeed, Allah and His Messenger have granted us bounty.” 

Reference: Tafsir ibn Kathir (abridged) English version. 

 Al-Birr-Spending from the Best of One’s Wealth (Surah Al-‘Imran 3:92)
     

In his , Waki` reported, that `Amr bin Maymun said that 

By no means shall you attain Al-Birr is in reference to attaining Paradise. 

Imam Ahmad reported that Anas bin Malik said, “Abu Talhah had more property than any other among the Ansar in Al-Madinah, and the most beloved of his property to him was Bayruha’ garden, which was in front of the (Messenger’s) Masjid. Sometimes, Allah’s Messenger used to go to the garden and drink its fresh water.” Anas added, “When these verses were revealed, 

By no means shall you attain Al-Birr unless You spend of that which you love, 

Abu Talhah said, `O Allah’s Messenger! Allah says, 

By no means shall you attain Al-Birr, unless you spend of that which you love;  

No doubt, Bayruha’ garden is the most beloved of all my property to me. So I want to give it in charity in Allah’s cause, and I expect its reward and compensation from Allah. O Allah’s Messenger! Spend it where Allah makes you think is feasible. ’ On that, Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Well-done! It is profitable property, it is profitable property. I have heard what you have said, and I think it would be proper if you gave it to your kith and kin.”

Abu Talhah said, `I will do so, O Allah’s Messenger.’ Then Abu Talhah distributed that garden among his relatives and cousins.”   

This Hadith was recorded in the Two Sahihs. 

They also recorded that `Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, “O Messenger of Allah! I never gained possession of a piece of property more precious to me than my share in Khaybar. Therefore, what do you command me to do with it” The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 

“Retain the land to give its fruits in Allah’s cause.”

Power of Dua (Surah Aal Al-Imran 3:37)

Power of Dua (Surah Aal Al-Imran 3:37)   
فَتَقَبَّلَهَا رَبُّهَا بِقَبُولٍ حَسَنٍ وَأَنبَتَهَا نَبَاتًا حَسَنًا وَكَفَّلَهَا زَكَرِيَّا
كُلَّمَا دَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا زَكَرِيَّا الْمِحْرَابَ وَجَدَ عِندَهَا رِزْقًا
قَالَ يَا مَرْيَمُ أَنَّىٰ لَكِ هَـٰذَا ۖ قَالَتْ هُوَ مِنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرْزُقُ مَن يَشَاءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ
“’So her Lord accepted her well and made her grow up well, and put Zakariya in charge of her. 
Every time Zakariya entered her sanctuary, he found food by her.
He asked, ‘Oh Maryam, How did you get this?’ She replied, ‘It is from Allah. Surely, 
Allah provides for whomever He wills without measure,”
(Surah Aal Al-Imran 3:37)
Explanation:
In this verse, the chosen woman Maryam (peace be upon her) teaches us all a very important lesson about Rizq (sustenance) and Tawakul (putting your trust in Allah). 
While her receiving this food was a miracle, it however teaches us to always remember that nothing is impossible for Allah and if we find ourselves in situations which it seems only a miracle can save us, then trust Allah and pray to Him for such a miracle.
Look at the example of Prophet Zakariya (peace be upon him) who was old and childless when this incident happened. Yet when Maryam told him this, he went and made dua for a child and Allah provided him with a son, the Prophet Yahya (peace be upon him).
We should have the same reaction when reading and hearing of such miraculous providing from the One who controls the universe, and immediately ask Him for things which no human can assist us with.
Tawakul and understanding Allah’s attribute of being the provider can have the following benefits for us, among others:
1) It can protect us from depression and despair, and increases patience and hope
2) It can keep us optimistic and motivated in the most difficult of tests
3) It keeps us content with what we receive in sustenance after working hard, knowing full well that Allah provides for us what we need and will not test us with that which we can’t handle

This is the example of the believers who give away charity seeking only Allah’s pleasure, 
while they in their own selves are sure and certain meaning, they are certain that Allah shall reward them for these righteous acts with the best rewards. Similarly, in a Hadith collected by Al-Bukhari and Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 
Whoever fasts Ramadan with faith and expectation… meaning, believing that Allah commanded the fast, all the while awaiting His reward for fasting it. 
Allah’s statement, 
is that of a garden on a Rabwah means, the example of a garden on ‘a height above the ground’, as the majority of scholars have stated. Ibn ‘Abbas and Ad-Dahhak added that it also has flowing rivers. 
Allah’s statement, 
Wabil falls on it means, heavy rain as we stated, So it produces its, (yield of harvest) meaning, fruits or produce, 
doubles, as compared to other gardens. 
And if it does not receive Wabil, a Tall suffices it. Ad-Dahhak said that the `Tall’ is light rain. The Ayah indicates that the garden on the Rabwah is always fertile, for if heavy rain does not fall on it, light rain will suffice for it. Such is the case regarding the believer’s good deeds, for they never become barren. Rather, Allah accepts the believer’s righteous deeds and increases them, each according to his deeds. This is why Allah said next, 
And Allah is All-Seer of what you do meaning, none of His servants’ deeds ever escapes His perfect watch.

 Hard barren rock (Surah Al-Baqarah 2: 264)     

O you who believe! Do not render in vain your Sadaqah (charity) by reminders of your generosity or by injury stating that the charity will be rendered in vain if it is followed by harm or reminders. In this case, the reward of giving away charity is not sufficient enough to nullify the harm and reminders. Allah then said, 
like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men meaning, “Do not nullify your acts of charity by following them with reminders and harm, just like the charity of those who give it to show off to people.” The boasting person pretends to give away charity for Allah’s sake, but in reality seeks to gain people’s praise and the reputation of being kind or generous, or other material gains of this life. All the while, he does not think about Allah or gaining His pleasure and generous rewards, and this is why Allah said, 
and he does not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day. 
Allah next set the example of whoever gives charity to show off. Ad-Dahhak commented that the example fits one who follows his acts of charity with reminders or harm. Allah said, 
His likeness is the likeness of Safwan here Safwan, from is Safwanah, meaning `the smooth rocks,’ 
on which is little dust; on it falls a Wabil meaning, heavy rain, 
which leaves it bare. This Ayah means that heavy rain left the Safwan completely barren of dust. Such is the case with Allah’s action regarding the work of those who show off, as their deeds are bound to vanish and disappear, even though people think that these deeds are as plentiful as specks of dust. So Allah said, 
They are not able to do anything with what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.

Rewards of Spending in Allah’s Cause     
This is a parable that Allah made of the multiplication of rewards for those who spend in His cause, seeking His pleasure. Allah multiplies the good deed ten to seven hundred times. Allah said, 
The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah…
Sa`id bin Jubayr commented, “Meaning spending in Allah’s obedience.” Makhul said that the Ayah means, “Spending on Jihad, on horse stalls, weapons and so forth.” The parable in the Ayah is more impressive on the heart than merely mentioning the number seven hundred. This Ayah indicates that Allah `grows’ the good deeds for its doers, just as He grows the plant for whoever sows it in fertile land. The Sunnah also mentions that the deeds are multiplied up to seven hundred folds. For instance, Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Mas’ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said that a man once gave away a camel, with its bridle on, in the cause of Allah and the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 
On the Day of Resurrection, you will have seven hundred camels with their bridles.
Muslim and An-Nasa’i also recorded this Hadith, and Muslim’s narration reads, “A man brought a camel with its bridle on and said, `O Messenger of Allah! This is in the sake of Allah.’ The Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 
You will earn seven hundred camels as reward for it on the Day of Resurrection.
Another Hadith: Ahmad recorded that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 
Every good deed that the son of Adam performs will be multiplied ten folds, to seven hundred folds, to many other folds, to as much as Allah wills. Allah said, “Except the fast, for it is for Me and I will reward for it. One abandons his food and desire in My sake.” The fasting person has two times of happiness: when he breaks his fast and when he meets his Lord. Verily, the odor that comes from the mouth of whoever fasts is more pure to Allah than the scent of musk. Fasting is a shield (against sinning), fasting is a shield. Muslim recorded this Hadith. 
Allah’s statement, 
Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills is according to the person’s sincerity in his deeds. 
And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower meaning, His Favor is so wide that it encompasses much more than His creation, and He has full knowledge in whoever deserves it, or does not deserve it. All the praise and thanks are due to Allah.

       The Story of `Uzayr 
Allah’s statement, 

Have you not looked at him who disputed with Ibrahim about his Lord (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:258)

(the previous Ayah) means, “Have you seen anyone like the person who disputed with Ibrahim about his Lord” Then, Allah connected the Ayah, 

Or like the one who passed by a town in ruin up to its roofs to the Ayah above by using `or’. 

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that `Ali bin Abi Talib (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said that the Ayah [Surah Al-Baqarah 2:259] meant `Uzayr. Ibn Jarir also reported it, and this explanation was also reported by Ibn Jarir and Ibn Abi Hatim from Ibn `Abbas, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, As-Suddi and Sulayman bin Buraydah. Mujahid bin Jabr said that the Ayah refers to a man from the Children of Israel, and the village was Jerusalem, after Nebuchadnezzar destroyed it and killed its people. 

in ruin means, it became empty of people. Allah’s statement, 

up to its roofs indicates that the roofs and walls (of the village) fell to the ground. `Uzayr stood contemplating about what had happened to that city, after a great civilization used to inhabit it. He said, 

Oh! How will Allah ever bring it to life after its death because of the utter destruction he saw and the implausibility of its returning to what it used to be. Allah said, 

So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him up (again). 

The city was rebuilt seventy years after the man (`Uzayr) died, and its inhabitants increased and the Children of Israel moved back to it. When Allah resurrected `Uzayr after he died, the first organ that He resurrected were his eyes, so that he could witness what Allah does with him, how He brings life back to his body. When his resurrection was complete, Allah said to him, meaning through the angel, 

"How long did you remain (dead)” He (the man) said: "(Perhaps) I remained (dead) a day or part of a day.”


The scholars said that since the man died in the early part of the day and Allah resurrected him in the latter part of the day, when he saw that the sun was still apparent, he thought that it was the sun of that very day. He said, 

"Or part of a day.” He said: "Nay, you have remained (dead) for a hundred years, look at your food and your drink, they show no change.” He had grapes, figs and juice, and he found them as he left them; neither did the juice spoil nor the figs become bitter nor the grapes rot. 

And look at your donkey! “How Allah brings it back to life while you are watching.” 

And thus We have made of you a sign for the people that Resurrection occurs. 

Look at the bones, how We Nunshizuha meaning, collect them and put them back together. In his Mustadrak, Al-Hakim, recorded that Kharijah bin Zayd bin Thabit said that his father said that the Messenger of Allah read this Ayah, 

how We Nunshizuha. Al-Hakim said; “Its chain is Sahih and they (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) did not record it.” The Ayah was also read, 

"Nunshiruha” meaning, bring them back to life, as Mujahid stated. 

And clothe them with flesh. As-Suddi said, ” `Uzayr observed the bones of his donkey, which were scattered all around him to his right and left, and Allah sent a wind that collected the bones from all over the area. Allah then brought every bone to its place, until they formed a full donkey made of fleshless bones. Allah then covered these bones with flesh, nerves, veins and skin. Allah sent an angel who blew life in the donkeys’ nostrils, and the donkey started to bray by Allah’s leave.” All this occurred while `Uzayr was watching, and this is when he proclaimed, 

He said, “I know (now) that Allah is able to do all things,” meaning, “I know that, and I did witness it with my own eyes. Therefore, I am the most knowledgeable in this matter among the people of my time.”
