[Face or Countenance Of Allah, Remembrance] [Iqamat-as-Salat] [Monotheism] [Moses, called and given Messengership] [Worship]

English – Mohsin Khan/Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali
“Verily! I am Allah! La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) for My Remembrance.

English – Tafsir ibn kathir
إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنَا

Verily, I am Allah! There is no God but Me,

This is the first obligation upon all responsible people of age, that they know that there is no God worthy of worship except Allah alone, Who has no partners.

Concerning Allah’s statement,


so worship Me,

This means, “Single Me out alone for worship, and establish My worship without associating anything with Me.”

وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَأةَ لِذِكْرِي

and perform Salah for My remembrance.

It has been said that this means,

“Pray in order to remember Me.”

It has also been said that it means,

“And establish the prayer whenever you remember Me.”

There is a supporting evidence for this second statement in a Hadith recorded by Imam Ahmad from Anas, who said that the Messenger of Allah said,

إِذَا رَقَدَ أَحَدُكُمْ عَنِ الصَّلَةِ أَوْ غَفَلَ عَنْهَا فَلْيُصَلِّهَا إِذَا ذَكَرَهَا فَإِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالى قَالَ

وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَأةَ لِذِكْرِي

Whenever one of you sleeps past the prayer, or he forgets to pray, then let him pray when he remembers it. For verily, Allah said,

And perform Salah for My remembrance.

In the Two Sahihs it is reported from Anas that the Messenger of Allah said,

مَنْ نَامَ عَنْ صَلَةٍ أَوْ نَسِيَهَا فَكَفَّارَتُهَا أَنْ يُصَلِّيَهَا إِذَا ذَكَرَهَا لَا كَفَّارَةَةَلهَا إِلاَّ ذَلِك

Whoever slept past the prayer, or forgot it, then his expiation is that he prays it when he remembers it. There is no expiation for it other than that.
