Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

“On the Day when you wiU see the believing men and the believing women, their light proceeding in front of them and to their right hands, (it will be said to them,) "Good news for you today! Gardens beneath which rivers flow, to live therein for ever! That is the great achievement,” [12]

COMMENTARY: Causes of Light and Darkness on the Plane of Gathering - Tafsir Mazhari, on this occasion, has, on the basis of Qur'an and
Hadith, described the causes of light and darkness on the Plane of Gathering.

[1] The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "Give glad tidings to those who go to the Masjid in the darkness of night that they will receive perfect light on the Day of Judgment." (Reported by Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

[2] The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "Whoever recites just a single verse of the Qur'an, it will be a light for him on the Day of Judgement." (Reported by Ahmed from Abu Hurairah RA)

[3] The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: "Whoever sends Salwaat (durud / salutations) to me, it shall be the cause of light on the Bridge of Sirat." (Reported by Dailami from Abu Hurairah RA)

How often do we wake up and give Thanks and Praise for the ability to be alive??
We take it for granted.

How often do we look up at the sky or just around us and notice all the beauty??
There is air to breath....
There are birds….
There are clouds….
There are trees….
There are flowers….
There is sand….
There is wind….
There is rain….
There is lightning….
There is thunder….
There is rainbows….
There are butterflies and
There are bees….
The list is endless if only we open our eyes to see.

Do we look at the children playing around?
Do we see their smiles of joy and hear their laughter?
Do we see the pain and sadness that people carry around?
Do we stop and think if there is anything we can do?
Do we offer help or just ignore?
Do we count our blessing and realize how rich we really are?
