Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

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

“And in the Hereafter there is a severe punishment [for the disbelievers], and forgiveness from Allah and [Allah's] pleasure [for the believers and the righteous]...” (57:20)

COMMENTARY: In the Hereafter people will certainly have to face one of two things:
1. Severe punishment for the non-believers; and
2. Forgiveness of Allah, His mercy and His pleasure.

Punishment has been mentioned here first, because the preceding verses described the behaviour of the disbelieving people that they are over-absorbed in worldly pleasures, the outcome of which is also severe chastisement.

As opposed to this outcome, two things have been laid down for the believers:
1) Divine forgiveness; and
2) Divine pleasure.

This indicates that forgiveness of sins is though a boon that saves one from the punishment, yet in addition to being saved from the punishment, he will attain Paradise and its eternal favours. This will be the manifestation of Divine pleasure.

She's left her husband's houses, apparently she wants a divorce
She's pregnant again, she already has five kids
She's working night shifts while her husband sleeps soundly
She's got her pictures plastered all over Facebook

She's so pretty but single at 25
She has her husband wrapped around her little finger
She left her child in daycare to go out and work
She got married so young, at 17
She treats her in laws like outsiders

Oooh I heard but did you know?

Her husband was addicted to drugs hence the divorce
Her desire to have a big family is now complete
Her husband is terminally ill now she has to work two jobs to provide for the family
Her low self esteem gets the better of her as she posts more pics on Facebook to feel special
Her heart longs to be married but she has not found her soul-mate yet

Her husband loves and appreciates her so much
Her choice at 17 was Nikkah not Zina
Her in laws were always treated with love and kindness yet it was not reciprocated

Gossip is the devils radio, don't be his DJ!

So this Department of Water Resources representative Jack stops at a farm and talks with an old farmer Piet. He tells the farmer, "I ectually and infekt need to inspekt your fam for the water allocation".

The old farmer says, Okay, but don't go in that field over there.

The clever & cheeky Jack says, "Mister, I have the full authority of The Government with me. See this card? This card means I am allowed to go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?

The old farmer nods politely and goes about his chores. Shortly, the Old farmer hears loud screams and spies Jack running for his life and close behind is the farmer's bull, gaining with every step.

Jack is clearly terrified, so the old farmer immediately throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs...

Your card! Show him your card!
