By the ˹passage of˺ time !Surely humanity is in ˹grave˺ loss,except those who have faith, do good, and urge each other to the truth, and urge each other to perseverance.						   Quran 103:1~3

وَٱلْعَصْرِ ‎
‏إِنَّ ٱلْإِنسَنَ لَفِى خُسْرٍ ‎
‏إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّلِحَتِ 
وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلصَّبْرِ
Al-Asr, (Arabic: العصر, The Declining Day, Eventide, The Epoch, Time”) is the 103rd chapter (sūrah) of the Qur’ān, the Muslim holy book. It contains three āyāt or verses. Surat al-‘Asr is the second shortest chapter after al-Kawthar.
عصر کی قسم کہ انسان نقصان میں ہے 
مگر وہ لوگ جو ایمان لائے اور نیک عمل کرتے رہے 
اور آپس میں حق (بات) کی تلقین 
اور صبر کی تاکید کرتے رہے
This Surah is a matchless specimen of comprehensiveness and brevity. A whole world of meaning has been compressed into its few brief words, which is too vast in content to be fully expressed even in a book. In it, in a clear and plain way it has been stated what is the way to true success for man and what is the way to ruin and destruction for him. Imam Shafi’i has very rightly said that if the people only considered this Surah well, it alone would suffice them for their guidance. How important this Surah was in the sight of the Companions can be judged from the tradition cited from Abdullah bin Hisn ad-Darimi Abu Madīnah, according to which whenever any two of them met they would not part company until they had recited this Surah to each other.
