Surah Al-Hashr (The Mustering)
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 24 verses and 3 sections

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

The Merits of al-Muhajireen [The Emigrants]

"And for the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and properties, while they were seeking the grace of Allah and (His) pleasure, and were helping Allah and His Messenger. They are the truthful. ... 59:8."

COMMENTARY: This verse describes the characteristics of the emigrants. The first of them is that they were driven from their homes and wealth, that is to say, their only crime was that they had embraced Islam and supported the Messenger of Allah, as a result of which the pagans of Makkah persecuted them, so much so that they had to abandon their hearths and homes and emigrate to Madinah. Some of them had to tie stones to their stomach on account of unbearable hunger, and others used to protect themselves against cold by digging holes in the ground, because they did not have clothes to save them from the chill of winter. [Mazhari, Qurtubi]

Masha - Allah, life is good,
Wake up in the morning,
Sun on my face, give thanks and praise to the creator,
Open up the gift, called a brand new day,

This life is fantastic, it’s hard, it’s sharp, Intense
Say, a prayer for the women in the suffering,
And the saints, and sinners,
Show love for everyone,

Inspiration, information,
Protect mind, and heart,
And your soul won’t lose,
Take care of yourself, Allah (swt) has the rest,
Do ur best,

So plain, so simple, so sweet,
With all the blues in the news, that’s news that we need,
So give thanks, spread love, and proceed,
Stay humble, cry when you need to,
And laugh out loud,

Beauty has come to me, Radiated, your love has touched me.
