The Qur'an Surah 102: Competing for More

The following is from a work-in-progress called The Qur'an: a Book Report, in which I read each surah of the Qur'an and write about what I learn.

This Meccan surah criticizes peoples' obsession with economic competition and the accumulation of material wealth, stating: "Competing for more distracts you until you go into your graves."  Ultimately, material wealth has no bearing on The Day of Resurrection.  In a sense, this surah is a critique of capitalism.
