CHAPTER: 40: THE BELIEVER
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
This is revelation of the Book from Allah, the Mighty, the All-Knowing, (2) The One who forgives sins and accepts repentance (3)
and pray for the forgiveness of those who believe,: “Our Lord, Your mercy and knowledge comprehends everything; so forgive those who repent and follow Your way, and save them from the punishment of the Fire. (7)
And save them from evils. And whomsoever you save from evils that day, it is surely because you bless him with mercy. And that is the great achievement indeed.” (9)
He is High in stations, the Lord of the Throne. He sends the spirit down, under His command, on whomever He wills from among His servants, so that he warns of the Day of Encounter - (15)
And warn them of the Day of approaching horror, when hearts will jump up into the throats, choked. There will be neither a friend for the unjust, nor an intercessor to be listened to. (18) He knows the treachery of the eyes and whatever is concealed by hearts. (19)
Have they not travelled through the earth and seen how was the fate of those who used to be before them? They were stronger than these in power and in traces left on the earth, but Allah seized them because of their sins. There was no one to save them from Allah. (21)
O my people, the kingdom is yours today, while you are dominant on the land. But, who is going to help us against Allah’s punishment, if it comes upon us?
O my people, follow me, I will show you the path of guidance. (38) O my people, this life of the world is only a benefit, while the Hereafter is, indeed, the place of permanent living. (39)
We gave Guidance to Moses, while We made the children of Isra’il inherit the Book - (53) As a guide and advice for people of understanding. (54) So, be patient - surely the promise of Allah is true - and seek forgiveness for your sins, and proclaim the purity and praise of your Lord in the afternoon and at dawn. (55)
Therefore, be patient. Surely, Allah’s promise is true. Then, whether We show you a part of the promise We are making to them, or make you die, in any case they have to be returned to Us. (77)

Do we want to succeed in both the worlds; here and the hereafter? If yes, then we must pray the morning prayer in the Mosque like we do every Friday. Success will follow in all walks of life and we would become the lead hands. As quoted by a non-Muslim if the Muslims' attendance in the morning prayer becomes like Friday prayer, they would become the leaders.
We must remember that the key to freedom is never given away freely , it has to be searched for and worked for. In the prison of this world, we can acquired real freedom by praying the morning prayer in the Mosque which is the master key to the doors of freedom. The key is right there, readily available to us but we choose to keep ourselves imprisoned.
This Book has no doubt in it - a guidance for the God-fearing, (2:2)
God Bless us all
