Surah Ibrahim (14) 13/08/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Distracted by the love of the life of this world

Verse 3. “Those who love the life of this world more than the Hereafter, who hinder (people) from the Path of Allah and seek therein something crooked: they are astray by a long distance.”

The phrase “those who love this life more than the akhirah” means that those who enjoy or live this life without the realisation of accountability, without observance of Allah’s law.  This life is the end for such people and not the Hereafter, so they have no limitations to their enjoyment in this life and in doing so they hinder or obstruct others from approaching the reality of the hereafter by either creating many distractions or bending the laws to satisfy their own desires.   Such people are astray by far.

A lesson to learn is that whatever we do we must bear in mind that we will be called to account for it on the day of judgement and our preferences for the enjoyment of the things of this world should not cause us to violate Allah’s commandments.

Continues tomorrow… Salaam/Peace
