Surat al-Asr (the time)

Assalamu alaikum!

  1. By the time,
  2. Truly man is in a state of loss,
  3. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and advice each other to uphold the truth, and advice each other to observe patience.

Explanation: The arabic word Asr means time, that is measurable, consisting of succession of periods.
Hence, Asr bears the significance of the passing or the flight of time - time that can never be recaptured.

This quick post helps you understand the translation and explanation of the Surat Al-Asr (The time). It is a small educational post which I wanted to share with you.I had read this from one of my islamic studies books and decided to put it on my blog for you guys to read :)
