Surah At-Taghabun (Loss and Gain)
This Surah is Madani, and it has 18 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

(He is the One who created you, then some of you are disbelievers, and some of you are believers... 64:2)

COMMENTARY: The Two Nation Theory - The Noble Qur'an has divided humankind here into two groups: a believing group and a non-believing one. This indicates that the children of Adam AS are one single brotherhood, and all human beings are members of this brotherhood. Kufr [unbelief] is the only dividing line that severs relationship with this brotherhood and creates another group. He who disbelieves has severed the relationship of human brotherhood. Thus group-formation can only take place on the basis of Iman and Kufr. Neither colour nor language, neither lineage nor family, neither land, territory nor geographical region can divide human brotherhood into rival groups. The offspring of one father may live in different cities, or use different languages, or have different colours, but it does not divide them into different groups. Despite differences of colour, language, country or territory, they are members of the same brotherhood. No sane person will ever regard them as different groups.

In the Days of Ignorance, ethnicity and tribal divisions had become the basis of factionalism, but the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam broke down these idols, which they pursued. By the express text of the Noble Qur'an 'All believers are brothers' irrespective of their country or territory, their colour or family, or their language. They all belong to one brotherhood. So likewise, the non-believers, in the sight of Islam, belong to a single community.

Moreover, the binary division of humankind on the basis of Eman and Kufr is a matter of free will and choice. Both Eman and Kufr may be adopted by one's free will. If a person chooses out of his own free will to abandon his group and join another, he can do it very easily: He may give up his articles of faith, choose another faith and thus join the other group. On the other hand, the affiliations of race, lineage, colour, language or territory are not within the power or control of anyone. No one can change his affiliation with his race, colour or language.

Lessons learned with time did fade,
The radiance that once shone on your face...
Sin after sin made you turn away,
But what will you say on Judgement Day?

There used to be a light in your eyes,
For Allah's name every tear you would cry...
Somewhere between hope and fear,
With every footstep an angel was near.

A heart neglected begins to rust,
But a little bit of love can bring back trust.
Patience is a virtue few understand,
And only falling on your knees gives you the strength to stand.

Countless blessings you can't deny,
But how can you be thankful when you've already died?
Sometimes reality is only your perception,
And yet you don't realize that you're a casualty of deception.

* We live in a society where pizza gets to your house before the police.

* The squeaky wheel doesn't always get the grease, sometimes it gets replaced.

* If you came home and found a strange man teaching your kids how to punch each other, or trying to sell them all kinds of things, you'd kick him right out of the house, but here you are; you come in and the TV is on, and you don't even think twice about it.

* I'm a nobody, nobody is perfect, and therefore I'm perfect.

* Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.
