The Rivalry in Worldly Increase (Qur’an: 102)

Wake up world!

ModWestMuse

Wake-Up

***

The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things),

Until ye visit the graves.

But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).

Again, ye soon shall know!

Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)

Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire!

Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight!

Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!)

***

This is such a brilliant – arresting – gripping verse (above)! The interjections and exclamations are deliberate! Like if you saw someone sleep-walking towards the fire, you would try to grab them in a jolt. Because you care. Wake up!
