Surah As-Saff (The Row) 61
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 14 verses and 2 sections

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

...You believe in Allah and His Messenger, and strive in His way with your wealth and your physical self... (And [He will give you] another thing that you love: Help from Allah, and a victory, near at hand ...61:13)

COMMENTARY: This verse adds that the blessings of this trade are not restricted to the Hereafter. There is one blessing that will be granted right here in this world, which is the Divine help and an imminent victory, that is, conquests of enemy territories. If the word Qar'ib (near) is taken as the opposite of Hereafter, it would include all later Islamic conquests of Arab and non-Arab territories. And if the word Qar'ib (near) is taken in its normal sense, it would, in the first instance, apply to the conquest of Khaibar, and in the second instance it would apply to the Conquest of Makkah. This 'near victory' is referred to as "that you love". It implies that this worldly blessing is dear to man, because he is by nature haste-prone as the Qur'an says: "...and man is prone to haste. [17:11]

This, however, does not imply that the blessings of the Hereafter are not dear to him. It simply means that the love of seeking the blessings of the Hereafter is quite obvious, but he naturally would love to have.

Yes, I do hear your silent whisper
That is why I'm here for you my sister

Your jihaad is not that of the sword
But for the beautiful religion of your lord

Don't let your strong heart cry
So much so that it would split

For those people are nothing but sly
Who think of themselves as high

Remember in hell is a blazing pit
Forever where the enemy will sit

After the unfortunate loss
Of the sirat he could not cross

When the enemy comes to you and instills fear
Why do you even bother to shed a tear

Because without a doubt to me you are always near
And to Allaah rather dear

There will come a special time
When the ladder of freedom you will climb

There is a day promised without sorrow
Be patient for there is definitely a TOMORROW

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited.

Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I sold cookies and I made R30," she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success. "Very good," said the teacher.

Little Jenny was next: "I sold magazines," she said, "I made R45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events." "Very good, Jenny," said the teacher..

Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath...

Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "R2, 467," he said.

"R2, 467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?" "Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes!" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny, "I set up a chip and dip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample." They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog poop!"

Then I would say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?"

"I used the government's strategy of giving you something for free, and then making you pay to get that taste out of your mouth."
