Pleasures And Pre-Occupations Of Life
Maulana Abul Kalam Azad – The Tarjuman al-Qur’an – 1968
To keep us engaged while we have to live, diverse desires, passions, urges for wealth, honour and power, desires for progeny and love of children, and pleasures and pre-occupations of life have all been thrown across the path.
“Fair seeming to men is the love of pleasure from women and children, and the stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and horses of mark, and flocks and corn-fields! Such, the enjoyments of this world’s life. But God! Goodly is the home with Him!”
Surah: Al-‘Imran (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chapter: 3 – Verse: 14
