Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

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

“And the worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion...” (57:20)

COMMENTARY: The current phrase states concisely the reality of this world. Having seen and understood all that has been explained in the foregoing verses about the transitory nature of this world, sound and intelligent people can come to only one conclusion: that is, the life of this world is a material of delusion; it is not a capital that may be useful in odd times. Therefore, after knowing the reality of the worldly life and the punishment of the Hereafter, a reasonable man should not be over-involved in worldly pleasures, and should be eager to obtain the bounties of the Hereafter. This is what the next verses say.

We all have something that we would like to express
Something that only we are aware of
Something that we may feel that others will judge us by
Something that we may feel ashamed about

It could be something small and unimportant
It could be something big and life changing
It could be something that we have done, or
It could be something someone has done to us….

It could be something that we haven’t resolved
Something that we haven’t forgiven
Something that we don’t want to talk about
Something that we want to keep hidden

What if it is not so bad?
What if it is not shameful at all??
What if it will make you happy?
What if it can make others happy too?

When is the time to let it out?
When is the time to let go?
When will the feeling of inadequacy pass?
When will we feel free?

Will we ever be confident enough to let it out?
Will we ever feel strong enough to face the consequences, if any?
Will we ever stop feeling afraid?
Will we ever be free?
