 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَٱبْتَغِ فِيمَآ ءَاتَىٰكَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلدَّارَ ٱلْءَاخِرَةَ وَلَا تَنسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَأَحْسِن كَمَآ أَحْسَنَ ٱللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ وَلَا تَبْغِ ٱلْفَسَادَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُفْسِدِينَ 77  قَالَ إِنَّمَآ أُوتِيتُهُۥ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ عِندِىٓ

77.  And seek the abode of the Hereafter in that which Allah hath given thee and neglect not thy portion of the world, and be thou kind even as Allah hath been kind to thee, and seek not corruption in the earth; lo! Allah loveth not corruptors.


78a.  He said: I have been given it only on account of knowledge I possess.

77.  Wabtagi  fiimaaa  ‘aataakAllaahud-Daaral-‘Aakhirata  wa  laa  tansa  nasiibaka  minad-dunyaa  wa  ‘ahsin  kamaaa  ‘ahsa-nAllaahu  ‘ilayka  wa  laa  tabgil-fasaada  fil-‘arz.  ‘InnAllaaha  laa  yuhibbul-mufsidiin.


78a.  Qaala  ‘innamaaa  ‘uutiitu-huu  ‘alaa  ‘ilmin  ‘indii.


Some people, as soon as become rich, begin to show their meanness. They do not have capability of understanding that they should not tease others by their behavior. At first they begin to consider that only the world is everything. Joking, mocking, gambling, games, fun, evil-working, delicious foods, drinking, insult of the poor, choosing the rascals as friends and using them for threatening, seducing others and massacre, in short, doing according to own will, these were and are hobbies of the rich people. Korah used to do all such deeds.


The sensible people caused to understand him: Behold! We all have to die including you. Earn something by this wealth also for the Day of Resurrection. This life is only for a few days. The life of the Hereafter will be never-ending. Allaah Almighty has benefitted you, so you also should do good for His creatures. Do not spread corruption in the Country by gathering your supporters. Allaah Almighty does not like corrupters. They will be ruined sooner or later.


After hearing this, Korah replied as usually today’s rich people say. He said: Who are you advising me? I have earned this wealth by the knowledge I have. It is my cleverness that I have so much wealth. Now you say that it has been given by Allaah. If so, then why has it not been given to you by Him?
