Surah Al Kahf (18) 01/10/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 18 (Al Kahf)

We are constantly tested to evaluate our commitment and sincerity

18:7 ” That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them – as to which of them are best in conduct.”
A cross reference
18:46 “Wealth and sons are allurements of the life of this world: But the things that endure, good deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best as (the foundation for) hopes.”

We should not be obsessed with materialism. Whilst things are important they should not be the ultimate objective. Use them as a means to an end.  Ultimately our attitude and benevolence towards our fellow beings on this earth will determine our success or failure both in this world as well as in the hereafter.
Continues tomorrow….            Salaams/Peace
