Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

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

"Know well that the worldly life is but a play and an amusement, and a show of beauty, and exchange of boastful claims between you, and a competition of increase in riches and children. (All this is) like a rain, the vegetation of which attracts the farmers, then it withers, and you see it turning yellow, then it becomes straw. 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). And the worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion." (57:20)

COMMENTARY: The Life of this World is Fleeting Enjoyment The preceding verses described the conditions of the inmates of Paradise and those of the inhabitants of Hell, which will materialize in the Hereafter and will be permanent and eternal. Since the basic cause for one's deprivation of the bounties of the Hereafter and his being seized by the divine punishment is his involvement in the temporary pleasures of this worldly life that tempt him to forget the life to come, the verse under comment describes the reality of the worldly life and its being unreliable. The verse depicts the involvements of a human being that he cheerfully enjoys from the inception of his life up to its end. The verse summarizes these involvements in the same order in which they occur. From the inception to the end of his life, man leads his life in the following order: La'ib [play], Lahw [amusement], Zeenah [show of beauty], Tafakhur [exchange of boastful claims] and Takathur [competition of increase in riches and children].

We were put on this planet to live and to love.
To cherish the ones in our lives.
And never let them get hurt...
Safety is a priority, but danger is an outcome.
Why is it, that we work so very hard?
For something that will still happen in the end...
Should we care about our lives, Or sit and waste it away?

"It doesn't matter, were all going to die someday!"
These words fill our heads with sad confusion.

There's no end….
We get lost with the love we want to have.
There is no conclusion to all this pain.
But an answer that comes, just the same.

The negative side seems to win, but the positive side seems to Glow.
We are who we choose to be, be careful who you choose.
Love everyday like there is no tomorrow...
And give to others the joy of life, so no one will be hurt.
Love, And love will love you back.
Open your arms to life and life will hug you back!
Don't be scared!
Life is still a onetime thing!
