About this episode

In Surat Al-Qalam, Allah tells the cautionary tale of two farmers who conspired to harvest their crop very early in the day to avoid the pleading hands of the needy, only to find that their entire crop had been destroyed to the point that they couldn’t even recognize their own garden. Before Allah, they were made bankrupt both physically and spiritually for denying the rights of the poor in their hearts. Merely thinking about the needy as a nuisance is a disease of the heart and in this story, the intention to withhold charity was enough to enrage Allah. We must not allow any corruption in our hearts to manifest in things that will harm us in this life and the next.
