Qur’anic Reflections: The Qur’an Explains the Reality of the World Part 2
Qur’anic Reflections: The Qur’an Explains the Reality of the World Part 1
The following verse is covered in this talk:
“Know well that the worldly life is but a play and an amusement, and a show of beauty, and exchange of boastful claims between you, and a competition of increase in riches and children. (All this is) like a rain, the growth of which attracts the farmers, then it withers, and you see it turning yellow, then it becomes straw. And in the Hereafter there is a severe punishment (for the disbelievers), and forgiveness from Allah and (Allah’s) pleasure (for the believers and the righteous). The worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion.” 57:20
