A Diamond Show
And if it were not that the people would become one community [of disbelievers], We would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful – for their houses – ceilings and stairways of silver upon which to mount
And for their houses – doors and couches [of silver] upon which to recline
And gold ornament. But all that is not but the enjoyment of worldly life. And the Hereafter with your Lord is for the righteous.
And whoever is blinded from remembrance of the Most Merciful – We appoint for him a devil, and he is to him a companion. [Az Zukhruf:33-36]

I remember going to a museum once where we saw a diamond show. We got to see the way they make diamonds and in the end there were so many beautiful things crafted out of shining diamonds. Now I am reminded of that scene and I was thinking that Allah (Swt) is creating a beautiful scene for us in these verses. All of the mentioned things hold such an extreme high value to us but to Allah (swt) they are not worth anything. He clearly has said if it wasn’t that all Muslims would revert he would give disbelievers all the goods in the world. So really if Allah (swt) is not looking at all the things we are amassing then what is it He looks at? Our insides should be decorated like the diamonds and gold we wish for.
