THE WORLD AND THE HEREAFTER

wp-16183156239767742961017793866311.jpgThe Quran speaks of two lives: the one in this “world” (dunya), which
is finite, and the other in the “Hereafter” (ahiret), which is infinite.
The relation between these words in the Quran is very clear. These
two words, which are used sometimes together in a verse and sometimes separately, are mentioned 115 times each. There are two examples below:
185- …The life of this world is no more than goods and
chattels of deception.
3-The Family of Imran, 185


103- This should be a sign for those who fear the torment
of the Hereafter…
11-Hud, 103

 

The word Number== of occurrences
World== 115
Hereafter ==115
