CHAPTER: 43:THE GOLD ADORNMENTS:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the manifest Book, (2) We have made it an Arabic Qur’an, so that you may understand. (3) And it is, in the Mother of the Book with us , surely sublime, full of wisdom. (4)
Is it they who allocate the mercy of your Lord? We have allocated among them their livelihood in the worldly life, and have raised some of them over others in ranks, so that some of them may put some others to work. And the mercy of your Lord is much better than what they accumulate. (32) Were it not that all people would become of a single creed, We would have caused, for those who disbelieve in Allah, roofs of their houses to be made of silver, and the stairs as well, on which they would climb, (33) And doors of their homes, and the coaches on which they would recline, (34) And of gold-ornaments. And all this is nothing but an enjoyment of the worldly life. And the Hereafter, with your Lord, is for the God-fearing. (35) Whoever makes himself blind against the advice of Allah, We assign for him a devil who accompanies him all the time. (36) And they prevent such people from the way, while they deem themselves to be on the right path, (37) Until when such a person will come to us, he will say, “Would that there were the distance of East and West between me and you, because you were the worst companion.” (38) And “Since you were wrongdoers, it will never benefit you today that you are sharing the punishment with each other.” (39) So, can you make the deaf to hear, or can you show the way to the blind and the one who is in open error? (40) So, even if We take you away, We will surely take vengeance on them. (41)
And let not the Satan prevent you. He is surely an open enemy for you. (62) When Jesus came with clear proofs, he said, “I have come to you with wisdom, and to explain to you some of those matters in which you differ. So, fear Allah, and obey me. (63) Surely, it is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; so worship Him. This is the straight way.” (64)
We did not do injustice to them, rather, they themselves were the unjust. (76)
Indeed We have brought to you the truth, but it is the truth that most of you detest. (78) And those whom they invoke besides Him have no power to intercede; but those who bear witness to the truth, while they have knowledge (86) And if you ask them as to who has created them, they will certainly say, “Allah”. Then, to where are they driven back? (87) And of his saying, “O my Lord, these are a people who do not believe. (88) So, turn away from them, and say, Peace. Then, soon they will come to know . (89)

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
