وَمَآ أُوتِيتُم مِّن شَىۡءٍ فَمَتَٰعُ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَزِينَتُهَا ۚ وَمَا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ خَيۡرٌ وَأَبۡقَىٰٓ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعۡقِلُونَ
The (material) things which ye are given are but the conveniences of this life and the glitter thereof; but that which is with Allah is better and more enduring: will ye not then be wise?<br/>
And whatever things you have been given are [only] the [short-lived] enjoyment of the life of this world and an ornament thereof, in other words, [things] which you enjoy and adorn yourselves with for the days of your lives, after which they perish; and what is with God, in other words, His reward, is better and more lasting. Will you not understand? (ta'qiloona; or read ya'qiloona, 'will they [not] understand') that what lasts is better than what perishes.
