Two Lives: Verse One

The life of this world is alluring to those

who reject faith, and they scoff at those

who believe. But the righteous will be

above them on the Day of Resurrection;

for Allah bestows His abundance without

measure on whom He will. 2:212

Our Earthly life is attractive

to the self. Only through the

soul’s illumination can we

transcend it to the hereafter

and its perpetuity.
