Sura 17
Aya 21
انظُر كَيفَ فَضَّلنا بَعضَهُم عَلىٰ بَعضٍ ۚ وَلَلآخِرَةُ أَكبَرُ دَرَجاتٍ وَأَكبَرُ تَفضيلًا

Yusuf Ali

See how We have bestowed more on some than on others; but verily the Hereafter is more in rank and gradation and more in excellence.1
  • Nor should man suppose that all gifts are of equal value. The spiritual ones rank far higher in dignity and real worth than the transitory ones. Therefore it is altogether wrong to compare the worldly prosperity of a wicked man with the apparent want of it to a man of spiritual worth. There is no comparison between them when measured by right standards.
