94.8. And seek and strive to please your Lord.

وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ

8. And seek and strive to please your Lord.4


4. The last two verses teach us how time should be used. Changing one's task provides a rest and refreshes one's zeal and power. Especially when an intellectual task is followed by a bodily one, the mind feels relaxed. Daily Prayers refresh the mind and the spirit amidst one's daily occupations. But whatever we do, we must do it to please God and, therefore, we should always be occupied with lawful deeds and refrain from doing that which has been forbidden by Him.
