This is going on among my university's ISOC members... Basically post an ayat, then say something/post something about the ayah, then nominate someone else to do the same.

Surah Naba verse 40 :

Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish that I were dust!"


First of all this ayah makes you reflect that even the richest, most honoured (on earth) and respected on earth, if they weren't a believer, will wish that they were dust on the Day of Judgement. It makes me think how dust is so little and insignificant, but at least 'dust' does not sin and commit evil. Dust is neutral and without aql/a brain.

So they wish that they were dust and not responsible for their sins/kufr.

I nominate @thebench to make a post and write about an ayah. @Darul Ilm please clarify if this thread is OK.
