A few points from today's after Fajr Tafseer:
1. Those who exchange the lives of this world for the lives of the Hereafter are the receivers of great reward, whether they are seen as the victors in this world or the losers.
2. The kuffar measure victory and defeat according to wordly affairs. They do not believe in taqdeer, ie that whatever Allah Ta'aala has destined is what will happen.
3. One should always have strong trust and belief in Allah Ta'aala and His will. We must always keep in mind that whatever happens is according to His wisdom. Yes, we adopt means; however, the results are left in the hands Allah Ta'aala.
4. Shaytaan and his tricks are weak and feeble before Allah Ta'aala.
Point 4 reminds me of something I read in a book of Moulana Yunus Patel Rahmatullahi Alayh which Insha Allah I shall post in my next blog entry.
