Al Llayl (The Night) (92)- 21

1>        By the Night as it conceals (the light);

2>        By the Day as it appears in glory;

3>        By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female

4>        Verily (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.

5>        So he who gives (in charity) and fears (Allah)

6>        And (in all sincerity) testifies to the Best

7>        We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Bliss.

8>        But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient.

9>        And gives the lie to the Best

10>        We will indeed make smooth for him the Path to Misery;

11>        Nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).

12>        Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide.

13>        And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.

14>        Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely;

15>        None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones

16>        Who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs.

17>        But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it

18>        Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification

       #6171        The spending may be for charity, or for good works, such as advancing the cause of knowledge or science, or supporting ideals, etc. "Wealth" must be understood not only for money or material goods, but also for any advantage or opportunity which a man happens to enjoy, and which he can place at the service of others. (92.18) 6172        The Arabic root word zaka implies both increase and purification, and both meanings may be understood to be implied here. Wealth (understood both literally and metaphorically) is not for selfish enjoyment or idle show. It is held on trust. It may be a trial in itself, from which a man who emerges successfully is a man all the purer in his life; and even if he was a good man before, his proper use of his wealth increases his position and dignity in the moral and spiritual world#

Luke1:41 " But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and behold, all things are clean unto you"***

19>        And have in their minds no favor from anyone for which a reward is expected in return

20>        But only the desire to seek for the countenance of their Lord Most High.

21>        And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.
