Pearls and Gem from Surah Muhammad [ letter 41 : Verses 36 , 37 , 38 ]

Some divine advice on hoarding ,while I was' lepacking' on www.quranexplorer {after half a day getting tired of hearing the moans and groans of my patients in the clinic},which I find interesting and want to share with you guys :

" The life of the world is but a sport and a pastime . And if ye believe and ward off [ evil ] .He will give you your wages and will not ask of you your worldly wealth . [ 36 ] If He should ask it of you and importune you , ye would hoard it , and He would bring to light your [secret ] hates .[37 ]
Lo ! Ye are those who are called to spend in the way of Allah , yet among you there are some who hoard . And as for him who hoardeth , he hoardeth only from his soul . And Allah is the Rich ,and ye are the poor. And if ye turn away He will exchange ye for some other folks , and they will not be the likes of you [ 38 ] .

You will notice here Allah is in a" perli mood ' .He knows most of us ,even though we 'believe' susah sangat nak part with our worldly possessions ,pasal Dia dah tahu kalau Dia mintak pun ramai yang find it susah nak ikut pasal sayang dunia sangat .He ended the Surah with a veiled warning though that kalau you kedekut aangat in the way of Allah you are just kedekut to your own soul .He would disown you and your kinds !Reminded me that zakat harta tahun ni 'pong' belum selesai lagi .Masha allah Dunia !! Ni Allah belum panggil berjihad lagi , baru masaallah" tax" 2 1/2 % saja!
