Good one, brother!

Surah 26. Ash-Shu’ara – The Poets

[Author’s Note] This is the 26th Surah of the Qur’an. It has 227 verses. The Book goes along in its style of unity in diversity. The Qur’an emphasizes that nothing in the Universe is inherently bad. Poetry can be beneficial or detrimental depending on the Message it carries. Those who indulge in senseless poetry mislead people and waste their own and others' time. Poets do not do what they say, and only the straying people follow them. The exceptions are those poets who believe in the Permanent Values and work for the betterment of humanity. The Surah embraces some other magnificent concepts as well.

26:224 As for poets, the misguided follow them.
26:225 Have you not seen how they stray in every valley of thought, like a camel with false thirst?
26:226 And that they say what they do not practice? [36:39]
26:227 But there are those who along with believing (in Revelation), set things right in the society, remain mindful of God’s commands, and stand up for their rights. The violators of human rights will soon come to know how viciously their affairs get overturned. [A’maal Saaleh = Actions that create balance in the society = Acts that remove deficiencies = Helping others = Increasing individual and societal potential. Wantasaroo = They support their just cause = Defend themselves = Stand up for their rights = They help create a just social order with no room for oppression]
