Post by: Zeynab on June 25, 2007, 10:23:09 pm

Reflecting on the Noble Quran

.. working hard for it but forgetting the Hereafter will be rewarded but only in this world. 


Bani Israel (17:18-21)

18. Whoso desires that (life) which hastens away, We hasten for him therein what We will for whom We please. And afterward We have appointed for him hell; he will endure the heat thereof, condemned, rejected.

19. And whoso desires the Hereafter and strives for it with the effort necessary, being a believer; for such, their effort finds favour (with their Rab).

20. Each do We supply, both these and those, from the bounty of your Rab. And the bounty of thy Lord can never be walled up.

21. See how We prefer one of them above another, and verily the Hereafter will be greater in degrees and greater in preferment.
