This is the verse of the Quran that Allah azza wa jal reminds you and I that we are a blessed nation. Some translations say we are the chosen nation.
Normally, you would hear Muslims talk about this verse, when they sit and reflect on all of the problems and struggles that are happening within this ummah. And they'll say things like, you know, we're supposed to be the best of nations. We're supposed to be the chosen OMA of Allah azza wa jal.
So that's one way you can look at it, that this is our reality, but this is where we're supposed to be.
