Qur'an 103:1[edit]

By Time.

Qur'an 103:1 Notes[edit]

Is this a metaphor for the days getting shorter or for the ceaseless, horrifying decay of society?

Qur'an 103:2[edit]

The human being is in loss.

Qur'an 103:2 Notes[edit]

Losing freedom of thought, freedom of individual expression, freedom of association, freedom of what to eat, freedom of who and what to teach, freedom of belief... All of these certainly bring a state of loss.

Qur'an 103:3[edit]

Except those who believe, and do good works, and encourage truth, and recommend patience.

Qur'an 103:3 Notes[edit]

During such difficult times, make sure to give your limited resources only to "those who believe" in the same sky-God as you.
