 Prohibition of Mocking and Suspicion (Surah Al-Hujurat 49: 11 and 12)   

11. O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former. Nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former. Nor defame yourselves, nor insult one another by nicknames. Evil is the name of wickedness after faith. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed wrongdoers. 
Prohibition of mocking and ridiculing One Another 
Allah the Exalted forbids scoffing at people, which implies humiliating and belittling them. In the Sahih, it is recorded that the Messenger of Allah said, 
 Arrogance is refusing the truth and belittling people.  And in another Version 
And despising people  
It is forbidden to scoff at and belittle people, for the injured party could be more honored and dearer to Allah the Exalted than those who ridicule and belittle them. This is why Allah the Exalted said, 
O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former. Nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former. thus, stating this prohibition for men and then women. 
The statement of Allah the Exalted, 
Nor defame yourselves, forbids defaming each other. He among men who is a slanderer, and a backbiter, is cursed and condemned as Allah states 
Woe to every Humazah, Lumazah (104:1)  Hamz is defamation by action, while Lamz is by words. Allah the Exalted and Most Honored said, 
Hammaz (defaming), going about with slander. (68:11)  meaning, he belittles and defames people, transgressing and spreading slander among them, which is the Lamz that uses words as its tool. Allah’s statement here, 
Nor defame yourselves,   just as He said in another Ayah, 
Nor kill yourselves (4:29) , meaning, nor kill one another. `Abdullah bin `Abbas, Mujahid, Sa`id bin Jubayr, Qatadah and Muqatil bin Hayyan said that the Ayah,
Nor defame yourselves, means, none of you should defame each other,’ while, 
nor insult one another by nicknames means, `you should not address people by nick names that people dislike.’ Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Jabirah bin Ad-Dahhak said, “This Ayah was revealed about us, Banu Salamah; 
nor insult one another by nicknames. When the Messenger of Allah migrated to Al-Madinah, every man among us had two or three nicknames. When the Prophet called a man by one of these nicknames, people would say, `O Allah’s Messenger! He hates that nickname.’ Then this Ayah, 
nor insult one another by nicknames. was revealed.” Abu Dawud also collected this Hadith. The statement of Allah the Exalted and Most Honored, 
Evil is the name of wickedness after faith, means, the names and descriptions of wickedness are evil; meaning, `to use the nicknames that were used by the people of Jahiliyyah, after you embraced Islam and understood it,’ 
And whosoever does not repent, means, from this sin, 
then such are indeed wrongdoers.

 Garden promised to the Righteous (Surah Muhammad 47:15)   

15. The description of Paradise which is promised to those who have Taqwa, (is that) in it are rivers of water that are not Asin, rivers of milk the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink it, and rivers of refined honey; and therein for them are all kinds of fruits, and forgiveness from their Lord. Can this be likened to those who abide eternally in the Fire and are given to drink boiling water that severs their intestines. 
Description of Paradise and Its Rivers 
The description of Paradise which is promised for those who have Taqwa… ` Ikrimah said, 
The description of Paradise “This means its description.” 
In it are rivers of water that are not Asin.  Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, Al-Hasan, and Qatadah all said, “It does not change.” Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak, and `Ata’ Al-Khurasani all said, “It is not foul-smelling.” The Arabs say Asin if its (water) scent changes. 
rivers of milk, the taste of which never changes, which means that the milk is of utmost whiteness, sweetness, and richness. It has been mentioned in a Hadith attributed to the Prophet “Their milk did not come out of the udders of cattle.” 
rivers of wine delightful to those who drink it  which means that the wine does not have a bad taste or foul smell like that of the worldly life. Rather, it is good in its appearance, taste, smell, and effect, as Allah says, 
it (the wine) has no bad effects, nor does it cause intoxication. (37:47) and, 
From which (the wine) they will have no headache, nor will they be intoxicated. (56:19) 
white, delicious to the drinkers.(37:46) It has been mentioned in a Hadith attributed to the Prophet , “Their wine was not pressed under men’s feet.” 
and rivers of refined honey; which means that the honey is of utmost purity and pleasant color, taste, and smell. It has been mentioned in a Hadith attributed to the Prophet, “Their honey did not come out of the bellies of bees.” Imam Ahmad recorded from Hakim bin Mu`awiyah who narrated from his father that Allah’s Messenger said, 
Verily, there is in Paradise a lake of milk, a lake of water, a lake of honey, and a lake of wine. The rivers then gush out of them.  At-Tirmidhi reported this narration in his section of the Description of Paradise, and he said, “Hasan Sahih. In the Sahih, it is recorded that Allah’s Messenger said, 
When you ask Allah, ask Him for Al-Firdaws, because it is the central and highest part of the Paradise, and from it gush the rivers of the Paradise and above it is the Throne of the Most Merciful. Allah says, 
…and therein for them are all kinds of fruits, …  This similar to His saying, 
They will call in it for every kind of fruit in peace and security. (44:55)  And His saying, 
In them will be every kind of fruits in pairs. (55:52)  Allah says 
. ..and forgiveness from their Lord, meaning, in addition to all of the above. Allah says, 
Can this be likened to those who abide eternally in the Fire meaning, `can those that We have described their position in the Paradise be like those who will abide eternally in the Fire’ They are not equal, and nor are those who will be in the high ranks (in the Paradise) and those who will be in the lowest depths (Hell). 
and are given to drink boiling water meaning, extremely hot; so hot that it is unbearable. 
that severs their intestines meaning, that will cut their insides — both bowels and intestines. We seek refuge in Allah from that.

The Trial of Wealth - Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:33-35


The Trial of Wealth

وَلَوْلَا أَن يَكُونَ النَّاسُ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً لَّجَعَلْنَا لِمَن يَكْفُرُ بِالرَّحْمَـٰنِ لِبُيُوتِهِمْ سُقُفًا مِّن فِضَّةٍ وَمَعَارِجَ عَلَيْهَا يَظْهَرُونَ

وَلِبُيُوتِهِمْ أَبْوَابًا وَسُرُرًا عَلَيْهَا يَتَّكِئُونَ

وَزُخْرُفًا ۚ وَإِن كُلُّ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَمَّا مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۚ وَالْآخِرَةُ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ

“And if it were not for the fact that all mankind would have become one (disbelieving) community, We would have provided for those who disbelieved in the Most Merciful silver roofs for their houses and (silver) staircases with which to ascend, and doors (of silver) for their houses and thrones (of silver) on which to recline, and adornments of gold. Yet all of that is nothing but the enjoyment of this world, while the Hereafter with your Lord is only for those who are God-conscious.”

(Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:33-35)

Explanation:

In these verses, Allah shows us the true nature of this world. It, with all its riches, is nothing in the sight of Allah. The prophet (peace be upon him) said that this world is worth less that the rotten carcass of a dead donkey, he even said that it is worth less than the wing of a mosquito. So why do we keep chasing after it?

This verse also refutes the misconception that wealth is an indicator of Allah’s pleasure with someone. Wealth does not indicate Allah’s pleasure or displeasure; it is a test just like poverty. Many of the richest people in the world (who can afford the things mentioned in this verse) are not Muslim. This is a test for them, as it is for us. 

Will we follow the footsteps of the disbelievers, blinded by this world, thinking it leads to success, or will we realize true success lies in the obedience of Allah and attainment of Paradise?

Another interesting point in this verse is Allah’s usage of His beautiful name “Ar-Rahman” (The Most Merciful). Scholars of Aqeedah and Tafseer say that this name indicates His Mercy to everything including disbelievers, and this is evident in this verse. Despite their disbelief and evil deeds, Allah might still bless them with the best of this world; this is mercy on a level that no human can imagine doing.

Chapter 42 Council, Consultation سورة الشورى - Ash-Shura: Verse 49

لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ يَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ إِنَاثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ الذُّكُورَ

To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills (and plans). He bestows (children) male or female according to His Will (and Plan)
