Similitude of the world
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
24a. The similitude of the life of the world is only as water which We send down from the sky, then the earth’s growth of that which men and cattle eat mingleth with it -
24a. ‘Innamaa Masalul-Hayaa-tiddunyaa kamaa-‘in ‘anzal-Naahu minas-samaaa-‘i fakh-talata bihii nabaatul-‘arzi mim-maa ya’-kulunnaasu wal-‘an-‘aam.
Condition of the mankind was described in the previous verses. He has been falling in love with this world. Some people are those who, when they are exposed to imminent danger, begin to pray in these words: Our Lord! If You save us from this disaster, we shall worship You during our further entire life. But as soon as the disaster is removed, they rebel again more than first time.
Such people were warned that their rebellion will bring calamity on themselves. The world is only for a few days. If you are saved in it, then what? At the end, you will come back unto Us and will be punished properly for your evil deeds. In this verse, reality of this world has been caused to understand them, so that they should know: there is no need of love with this unsteady world.
It is commanded: Behold! Hear the similitude of that thing of the world; on which you are tempted. We caused to rain from the sky, Verdure on the earth began to bloom.
