ٱللَّهُ يَبْسُطُ ٱلرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ يَشَآءُ وَيَقَدِرُ وَفَرِحُواْ بِٱلْحَيَاةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَمَا ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا فِي ٱلآخِرَةِ إِلاَّ مَتَاعٌ
-Ar-Ra‘d ( الرعد )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

God expands provision, He makes it abundant, for whom He will, and straitens, restricts it, for whomever He will; and they, the people of Mecca, rejoice, a wanton rejoicing, in the life of this world, that is, in what they acquire therein, yet the life of this world, in, comparison with the life of, the Hereafter, is but [a brief] enjoyment, a trifling thing, enjoyed and then lost.
