6-8Certainly not as you think! Even though the return is to your Rabb, man certainly transgresses when he sees himself self sufficient. 9-10Have you seen the one who forbids a servant when he fulfills Salah6 [supports financially and spiritually; strives to enlighten the community]? 11-12Have you ever thought, if that servant who fulfills Salah is upon the righteous path or commands taqwa! [being under the guardianship of Allah]7! 13Have you ever thought, if that one who forbids the one who fulfills Salah denied and turned away!… 14Does that one who forbids Salah not know that Allah definitely sees?
