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

Be mindful of the day when He will gather you for the Day of Gathering. That will be the Day of loss and gain...64:9

COMMENTARY: The Reason Why the Day of Gathering is called the Day of Loss and Gain - 'The Day of Gathering' and 'The Day of Loss and Gain' are both the names of the Day of Judgement. The reason why that day is called 'The Day of Gathering' is quite obvious. On that day all creations, the earlier generations as well as the later generations, will be brought together to give account of their deeds and for reward and punishment.

'The Day of Loss and Gain' is so called because, according to authentic Traditions, Allah has created two abodes for everyone in the Hereafter - one in Hell and another in Paradise. Before admitting the righteous believers to Paradise, they will be shown the abode in Hell, which they would have received if they failed to believe and act righteously, so that they may appreciate their abode in Paradise more highly and thank Allah more profoundly. On the other hand, the non-believers will be shown their abode in Paradise, which they would have received had they believed and acted righteously, so that they may regret more bitterly and be more remorseful.

These Traditions are elaborately recorded in the two Saheehs and other collections of Traditions. When the inmates of Paradise will attain the places originally prepared for the disbelievers, the latter will realize what they have lost and what they have gained.

In The Face of Much Hardship

by Halimah bint David Mac Quarrie

In the face of much hardship
Stood firm and patient in Allaah.
Bringer of good news and glad tidings,
You are a mercy unto all people

You fearlessly strived in the cause of Allaah
In the face, of much hardship.
With the best of manners and character,
You stood patient, forgiving others when provoked and abused

You placed the needs of others, before your own;
Took care of orphans and gave much to the poor.
In the face of much hardship,
You feared Allaah and taught us to as well

You will pray for mercy on this Muslim Ummah.
On that day, Long and Hot many will stand
Sweating, up to the eyelids for fear of Allaah
In the face of much hardship

We follow your guidance and praise Allaah.
You are a noble man of true integrity.
Stood firm and patient in Allaah
Belief in the One, always got you through

You used much wisdom and soft speech,
To correct the misguided;
And showed this Ummah how you,
Stood firm and patient in Allaah
