Verses 1 to 3 of Surah 103.


CONSIDER the flight of time! (1)

إِنَّ الْإِنْسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ

Verily, man is bound to lose himself (2)

إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ

unless he be of those who attain to faith, and do good works, and enjoin upon one another the keeping to truth, and enjoin upon one another patience in adversity. (3)
