Has The Time Not Come Yet?- Paperback by Shaykh Mufti Saiful Islam
This sūrah is mainly focused on striving and spending in the path of Allāh subhanahu wa ta’ala. It is important to remember that the wealth that we have in this dunya is not ours, to begin with, yet Allāh subhanahu wa ta’ala beautifully says: “Who is it that would loan Allāh a beautiful loan so that Allāh may multiply it for him.” (57:11).
This life is ultimately an illusion that will be over within a split second. The luxury cars, big mansions and designer clothes are all but temporary. Allāh subhanahu wa ta’ala accurately describes this world like “a commodity of deception.” (57:20).
