[3:14] Adorned for the people are the worldly pleasures, such as the women, having children, piles upon piles of gold and silver, trained horses, livestock, and crops. These are the materials of this world. A far better abode is reserved at GOD.
[3:15] Say, “Let me inform you of a much better deal: for those who lead a righteous life, reserved at their Lord, are gardens with flowing streams, and pure spouses, and joy in GOD’s blessings.” GOD is Seer of His worshipers.
[3:16] They say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us our sins, and spare us the agony of the hellfire.”
[3:17] They are steadfast, truthful, submitting, charitable, and meditators at dawn.
