57 Preface يا أَيُّهَا النّاسُ قَد جاءَتكُم مَوعِظَةٌ مِن رَبِّكُم وَشِفاءٌ لِما فِي الصُّدورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحمَةٌ لِلمُؤمِنينَYusuf AliO mankind! there hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases)1 in your hearts,- and for those who believe, a guidance and a Mercy.Those who do wrong have a disease in their hearts, which will cause their spiritual death. God in His Mercy declares His Will to them, which should direct their lives and provide a healing for their spiritual disease. If they accept Faith, the remedy acts; they find themselves in right guidance and receive God’s forgiveness and mercy. Surely those are far better gifts than material advantages, wealth, or possessions, (Cf. n. 2989).
