Time after time

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.

By Al-`Asr(the time).

Verily, man is in loss.

Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommended one another to truth[i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-Ma'ruf) which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins ans evil deeds (Al-Munkar) which Allah has forbidden], and recommend one another to practise patience.
