Tafseer OF Layl Surah (Tafsir easy for kids in english)

This tafsir is reflection of Tafsir Ibne Kathir (Video in Playlist)

Verse 1: “By the night as it envelops,”

This verse talks about how important the night is. Just like a blanket covers you to keep you warm and safe when you sleep, the night covers everything with its darkness. It’s like a protective cover that Allah made for us.

Imagine a big, dark, and peaceful blanket that comes every night. It’s a gift from Allah to help us rest and be safe. The Quran often talks about night and day, and this verse reminds us to appreciate the calm and peacefulness of the night.

So, when you see the nightfall, remember that it’s a beautiful gift from Allah to give us rest and comfort. It’s a time when you can sleep, dream, and be ready for a new day ahead.

Verse 2:

“And [by] the day when it appears,”

This verse talks about the daytime. Just like the night covers everything with its darkness, the daytime is when the sun comes up and brightens everything. It’s like a big, shining smiley face in the sky that makes everything visible.

So, during the day, you can see where you’re going, play with your friends, and learn new things. The Quran talks about day and night to remind us that Allah has created everything with a purpose. The day helps us see and do all the things we need to do, just like the night helps us rest and sleep.

The daytime is a time to be active and do all the things we enjoy, like going to school, playing, and spending time with our families. So, when you see the sun shining in the sky, remember that it’s a wonderful gift from Allah to light up our world and make everything so beautiful.

Verse 3:

“And [by] He who created the male and female,”

This verse talks about how Allah, the One who created everything in the universe, is the same One who created males and females. Just like Allah made the sun, the moon, the stars, the plants, and animals, He also created boys and girls.

When Allah created males and females, He gave them special qualities and differences. Boys and girls have different characteristics and roles, but they are equally important and valued by Allah. He made them this way to complete and complement each other, just like puzzle pieces fit together.

So, this verse reminds us that Allah is the Creator of everything, including us, and He made us with a purpose. Boys and girls are both special and have unique qualities that make the world interesting and beautiful.

Verse 4: “Indeed, your efforts are diverse.”

This verse tells us that people do different things, and they work hard in many different ways. Everyone has their talents, interests, and skills. Some people might be good at art, others at sports, and some at helping others. Allah made us all different, and that’s a good thing because it makes the world colorful and interesting.

So, this verse reminds us that we are all unique, and we should appreciate and respect the diversity of talents and efforts that people put into making the world a better place. Your hard work and what you’re good at are valuable, just like the hard work and talents of others.

Verse 5: “As for he who gives and fears Allah,”

This verse talks about someone very good. They like to share and give to others, like helping people who need it. But what’s even more special is that they also fear Allah. That means they are careful to do what’s right, and they are good people because they want to make Allah happy.

So, this verse reminds us that being kind and generous is wonderful, but it’s even better when we do it while being good and trying to please Allah. When you help others and make Allah happy, it’s like having a big heart full of love and goodness. And that’s a beautiful thing to do.

Verse 6: “And believes in the best [reward],”

This verse talks about someone who believes in getting good rewards from Allah. It’s like when you do something good, like helping others or being kind, and you believe that Allah will reward you with something wonderful in return.

So, this verse reminds us to have faith and trust in Allah’s rewards. When we do good things and believe that Allah will give us something even better, it encourages us to be kind, generous, and good-hearted. It’s like having a special treasure of blessings waiting for us in the future, and that’s something to look forward to!

Verse 7: “We will ease him toward ease.”

This verse tells us that when someone is kind, generous, and believes in Allah’s rewards, Allah makes their life easier. It’s like Allah helps them when things get tough, and their life becomes smoother and more comfortable.

So, this verse reminds us that being good, helping others, and having faith in Allah’s rewards bring happiness and ease into our lives. When we do the right things, Allah looks after us and makes our journey through life a lot more pleasant. It’s like having a friend who always helps you when you need it.

Verse 8: “But as for he who withholds and considers himself free of need,”

This verse talks about someone who doesn’t like to share and thinks they don’t need anyone’s help. They might be selfish and believe they have everything they need on their own.

So, this verse reminds us that being selfish and not helping others can make life difficult. When we think we don’t need anyone and don’t share with those who need our help, it can lead to problems. It’s better to be kind and generous and realize that we all depend on each other. This way, life becomes happier and more peaceful for everyone.

Verse 9: “And denies the best [reward],”

This verse talks about someone who doesn’t believe in the wonderful rewards that come from Allah when we do good things. They might think that being kind and generous doesn’t lead to anything special.

So, this verse reminds us that it’s important to believe in the goodness of our actions and the rewards that Allah promises. When we do good things, we should have faith that Allah will give us something beautiful in return. It’s like having hope and trust that our good deeds are like seeds that will grow into a beautiful garden of blessings.

Verse 10: “We will ease him toward difficulty.”

This verse tells us that when someone is selfish, doesn’t believe in good rewards, and thinks they don’t need others, life can become harder. It’s like Allah doesn’t make things as smooth and easy for them.

So, this verse reminds us that being unkind, selfish, and not believing in the goodness of our actions can lead to difficulties and challenges in life. It’s better to be generous, believe in Allah’s rewards, and realize that we all need each other’s help to make our lives better and more enjoyable.

Verse 11: “And what will his wealth avail him when he falls?”

This verse talks about a person who is selfish and doesn’t like to help others. They think their wealth and possessions are the most important things, and they don’t like to share or be kind to those in need.

So, this verse reminds us that, when this person faces difficulties or problems in life, their wealth won’t be of much help. Money and possessions can’t solve all our problems. Being kind and generous is more valuable than just having lots of things. It’s a good lesson to remember that helping others and being a good person is much more important than having lots of money or fancy things.

Verse 12: “Indeed, [incumbent] upon Us is guidance.”

This verse tells us that providing guidance is Allah’s responsibility. Allah guides us by showing us what’s right and wrong, and what we should do in our lives. It’s like Allah gives us a map or instructions on how to live a good and happy life.

So, this verse reminds us that we can always turn to Allah for guidance in our lives. When we follow the right path that Allah shows us, we make better decisions and live in a way that pleases Him. It’s like having a wise and caring guide to help us make the best choices.

Verse 13: “And indeed, to Us belongs the Hereafter and the first [life].

This verse tells us that everything belongs to Allah, including the life hereafter (the afterlife) and the life we’re living right now. Allah is in control of both.

So, this verse reminds us that Allah is the owner and controller of everything. Our life on Earth is just one part of our journey, and there is also a life after this one. Allah takes care of all of it. It’s like having a loving and wise Creator who has a plan for us in this world and the next.

Verse 14: “So I have warned you of a Fire which is blazing.”

This verse tells us that Allah is warning us about a very hot and fierce fire. It’s not like any fire we’ve seen here on Earth; it’s a fire in the afterlife, a place called Hell.

So, this verse reminds us that we need to be good and do what’s right in our lives. Allah is warning us about the punishment of a fiery place for those who don’t do good things and make bad choices. It’s like a reminder to stay away from bad actions and to be kind and generous to avoid any harm in the hereafter.

Verse 15: “None will [enter it] except the most wretched.”

This verse tells us that only very unhappy and miserable people will go into that fiery place, Hell. These are the people who didn’t do good things and made bad choices in their lives.

So, this verse reminds us that we should try our best to be good and make the right choices in our lives. When we’re kind, generous, and do what’s right, we can avoid ever going to such an unhappy and fiery place. It’s like a reminder to always do our best to be good and avoid harm in the afterlife.

Here’s a simplified explanation of verse 16 of Surah Al-Lail for children:

Verse 16: “The one who denied and turned away,”

This verse talks about a person who didn’t believe in Allah’s guidance and turned away from it. They didn’t listen to what was right and chose to go in the wrong direction.

So, this verse reminds us that we should listen to what’s good and right and not turn away from it. It’s important to have an open heart and mind to learn what’s good and follow the right path. When we do that, we make better choices and have a happier.

Verse 17: “But the one who fears Allah,”

This verse talks about a person who is good and careful about doing what’s right because they fear Allah. It means they’re mindful of Allah and try to please Him by being good.

So, this verse reminds us that it’s important to be good and make the right choices because we fear Allah and want to please Him. When we have respect and love for Allah and want to do what makes Him happy, we become better people and live a happier and more meaningful life. It’s like having a guide to help us on the path to goodness and happiness.

Verse 18: “The one who gives his wealth to purify himself,”

This verse talks about a person who is generous and shares their wealth with others. They do it not just to help people but also to make themselves better and cleaner inside. It’s like when you give away some of your toys or things to help others and at the same time, it makes your heart feel happy and pure.

So, this verse reminds us that being kind and sharing what we have is not only helpful to others but also a way to make our hearts kind and pure. When we give with a good intention, it’s like cleaning our hearts from selfishness or greed. It’s a beautiful way to become a better person.

Verse 19: “And there is not for anyone with Him any favor to be repaid.”

This verse tells us that whatever good things we have in our lives, whether it’s our family, our friends, the nice things we own, or the abilities we have, all of these are blessings from Allah. Allah is the One who gives us these gifts, and we can’t repay Allah for them. We can’t give Him something equal in return for all the wonderful things He has given us.

So, this verse reminds us to be thankful to Allah for all the good things in our lives. We should remember that Allah is the One who provides us with these blessings, and we can’t fully repay Him. We show gratitude by being good, kind, and thankful in our actions and by remembering Him in our hearts.

Certainly, here’s a simplified explanation of verse 20 of Surah Al-Lail for children:

Verse 20: “But only seeking the countenance of his Lord, Most High,”

This verse talks about a person who does good things not for any reward from people or to show off but to seek the pleasure and approval of Allah, who is the Most High. It means they do good deeds because they want Allah to be happy with them.

So, this verse reminds us that the best way to do good things is to do them for the sake of Allah, seeking His approval and love. When we aim to please Allah, it’s like having the best motivation because Allah is the Highest and Most Important One. It’s a way to become a better and more sincere person.

Here’s a simplified explanation of verse 21 of Surah Al-Lail for children:

Verse 21: “And He will be satisfied.”

This verse tells us that when someone does good things to seek Allah’s pleasure and approval, Allah will be happy and satisfied.

So, this verse reminds us that when we do good deeds with a pure heart and to make Allah happy, He will be pleased with us. It’s like having a special connection with Allah, and His satisfaction is the best reward we can ever receive.
