Surat Al-Hadid is the 57th Surah of the Qur'an prefixed by the Basmala (the 9th. sura is not - see also Sunnan Abu Dawood a hadith 785-787). This sura is the only one named for a chemical element. (And We also sent down iron in which there lies great force and which has many uses for mankind)… (Qur'an, 57:25) The reference to iron is in verse 25 of this Surah, which states: "...We sent down Iron, in which is (material for) mighty power, as well as many benefits for mankind...".
Other chemical elements mentioned in the Qur'an include gold and silver as valuables (e.g. Sura 3, 14 & Sura 9, 34), copper (Sura 55, 35) and copper in the context of molten brass or bronze (e.g. Sura 34, 12).
Classification of Believers
57:10 وَمَا لَكُمْ أَلَّا تُنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلِلَّهِ مِيرَاثُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَا يَسْتَوِي مِنكُم مَّنْ أَنفَقَ مِن قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقَاتَلَ أُوْلَئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أَنفَقُوا مِن بَعْدُ وَقَاتَلُوا وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ
Moreover, what could be the matter-rationale for you people that you might not spend in the Path of Allah the Exalted? While the reality is that the domain of the Skies and the Earth is eternally the belonging for Allah the Exalted.
Those, who had spent before the event of the Conquest of Mecca and confronted war, do not and will never equal-equate with any one from amongst you, the living people.
They are the people who are comparatively great. Their greatness is in elevated rank-position and status in contrast to all the people who did the same act of spending and confronting war in time and space in time-line after the Conquest.
However/though Allah the Exalted has promised, for all an appropriate/proportionate reward. Remain mindful that Allah the Exalted is perpetually informed/aware of all those acts which you people keep doing. [57:10]
Allah, the Exalted has classified the Believers of Mohammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam and the Grand Qur'an in two groups. The classification is with reference to the Event of the Conquest of the Sanctified City of Mecca. The Believers, men and women, of the period immediately before this Event are the First Group and are declared as the great over all others, the other Group, who became or become believers after that Event. This greatness is with reference to their elevated Rank and position over all other believers of Mohammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam and the Grand Qur'an, in time and space.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
