Surat Al-'Asr (The Time) is the 103th chapter of the Qur'an. The surah teaches that all mankind are in loss, except those who believe in God, do good deeds, remind others of the truth, with patience and steadfastness.
This is the second shortest surah, after surat Al-Kawthar.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By Al-'Asr (the time).
Verily! Man is in loss,
Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah's cause).
