Eventide (Al-Asr)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1By the time.

2Verily, man is in loss.

3Except such as have faith and do righteous deeds and in the mutual teaching of truth and of patience and constancy.1

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Wal ashr

2Inna linsana lafi khusr

3Illal lazina amanu wa amilu shalihati wa tawashau bil haqqi wa tawashau bishabr

1. This is another example of the difference between the Bible and the Qur'an. Faith and works is said to lead a man to avoid “loss”. But the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 3:20, “Therefore, no human being will be justified in God's sight by means of the works prescribed by the law, for through the law comes the full knowledge of sin.”

Paul goes on to comment about the nature of salvation in Ephesians 2:8, where he says: “For by such grace you have been saved through faith. This does not come from you; it is the gift of God.”
