The Ultimate Hope
There is a very strong and beautiful message – among many- in Surat Al Kahf that sometimes we forget.
The message is in this verse:
“Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope.” (Qur’an 18: 46)
Many of us spend majority of our time and attention in this life working on those two aspects: accumulating money and raising children. Almost everything in life revolves around those two things.
For many people, the measure of one’s success is his job and how much money he has.
If you meet someone that you haven’t met in a long time, you’ll probably get asked “so where are you working now? How is the job?” Or even more bluntly, “How is the[ pay?”]
