i'm slow...

this morning i was just at surah 3- Ali 'Imran  section 14 : what success meant for the muslims

130 O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied, but fear God, that ye may (really) prosper. 131 Fear the Fire, which is prepared for those who reject Faith: 132 And obey God and the Messenger, that ye may obtain mercy. 133 Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous,-134 Those who spend(freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity, who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men, -for God loves those who do good,-135 And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their sins,-and who can forgive sins except God?-and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in(the wrong) they have done.136 For such the reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with rivers flowing underneath,-an eternal dwelling: how excellent a recompense for those who work (and strive)!

note: usury = riba'
