“Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet: Women & sons; Heaped-up hoards of gold & silver; horses branded (for blood & excellence); & (wealth of) cattle & well-tilled land. Such are the possessions of this world’s life; but in nearness to Allah is the best of the goals (To return to).
Say: Shall I give you glad tidings of things Far better than those? For the righteous are Gardens in nearness to their Lord, with rivers flowing beneath; therein is their eternal home; with companions pure (& holy); & the good pleasure of Allah. For in Allah’s sight are (all) His servants,-
(Namely), those who say: “Our Lord! we have indeed believed: forgive us, then, our sins, & save us from the agony of the Fire;”-
Those who show patience, Firmness & self-control; who are true (in word & deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of Allah); & who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning.
There is no god but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, & those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise.” [3:14-18]
