In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

Continuation of Chapter 7 Al-A'raf ( )
(The Heights)



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
7:32
Say: Who hath forbidden the beautiful (gifts) of Allah which He hath produced for his servants and the things clean and pure (which He hath provided) for sustenance? Say: they are in the life of this world for those who believe (and) purely for them on the Day of Judgment. Thus do We explain the signs in detail for those who understand.
  • Asceticism often means the negation of art and beauty, it has no necessary sanctity attached to it.
  • The beautiful and good things of life are really meant for, and should be the privilege of those with faith in Allah. If they do not always have them in this life, and if there is sometimes the semblance of others having them who do not deserve them, let us remember that this is a test from Allah. In the life to come they will be purely for the faithful.
