In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),
Verily Man is in loss,
Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds,
and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth,
and of Patience and Constancy.
According to the tafsir of Ibn Kathir:
At-Tabarani recorded from 'Abdullah bin Hisn Abi Madinah that he said, "Whenever two men from the Companions of the Messenger of Allah used to meet, they would not part until one of them had recited surah al-'Asr in its entirety to the other, and one of them had given the greetings of peace to the other."
Ash-Shafi'i said, "If the people were to ponder on this surah, this [alone] would be sufficient for them."
