Free Quran Chapter 90: The Town (Al-Balad)

Learn from GOD that you should spend your time helping and encourage others to do good, don’t be lazy and idle. Here GOD tells you that you have no excuse not to do what is right. Because GOD gave you a brain, the hearing, the eyesight and a tongue. You are therefore responsible for how you use those. If you tell lies, then its your own fault. And you can’t blame others for lying to you, because you have a brain, it is your responsibility¬†to make sure the information is correct.

You should choose the difficult path, it is painful and hard with many sacrifices. Instead of going out to party every weekend, you instead choose to go to charity events or even study a topic. Then by studying you will then increase your understanding and find solutions for how to help people in need. You could perhaps plan an event in your community, to bring everyone closer together and hear about ideas for how to make the community better.
