The Qur'an Surah 107: Common Kindnesses

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 surah is basically a condemnation of religious hypocrisy, that is, claiming to be a believer while acting contrary to those beliefs: "Woe to those who pray but are heedless of their prayer: those who are all show and forbid common kindnesses...It is he who pushes aside the orphan and does not urge others to feed the needy."  These hypocrites will not fare well on the Day of Judgment.
