Comfort Zone vs. Compassionate Action

In this video, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan recounts the story mentioned in Surah Al-Qalam of rich individuals with gardens neighboring the poor.

Their selfish plot to harvest fruits without sharing led to divine intervention - Allah burned their garden down. Despite expressing remorse later, they continued making excuses, reflecting the behavior of non-believers on Judgment Day.

The lesson is clear: seek forgiveness before facing consequences. Our relationship with Allah mirrors how we treat those in need. Ignoring others' suffering risks divine retribution. Let's be compassionate and care for Allah's creation.
