Imaam al-Shaafi’i Rahimahullaah said: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allaah `Azza Wa Jall.’

PostSubject: This world is a scam   Sun Apr 25, 2010 8:58 pm

This world is a scam which has fooled many.

Abu al-Darda’ addressed the people of Damascus saying, ‘Won’t you have some shame? You build that which you do not live in, you hope for which you cannot achieve and you gather that which you will not eat. Indeed, those who came before you built strong buildings, they gathered up much and they had long hopes. So their buildings became graves, their wealth an illusion and their gatherings perished.’

A wise man once said, ‘The mother of all sins lies in 3 things: Jealousy, Covetousness and Arrogance. As for arrogance, its origin lies in Iblis when he proved arrogant and refused to prostrate and thus he was cursed. As for covetousness, then it originally came from Adam (`alayhisalam) when it was said to him, ‘All of Paradise is permissible for you except this tree’ but covetousness carried him to eat from it until he fell from Paradise. And jealousy has its origins in Qabil, the son of Adam when he killed his brother Habil (because the sacrifice was accepted from Habil and not Qabil), thus he became a disbeliever and his place will be in Hellfire forever.’

Imam al-Samarqandi said, ‘A believer is in need of 6 characteristics:

1. Knowledge which guides him to the Hereafter.
2. A friend who helps him maintain obedience to Allah, the Most High, and prevents him from disobeying Him.
3. Knowing his enemies and being cautious of them.
4. Insight which he uses to contemplate over the Verses of Allah, and over the passing nights and days.
5. Being kind to the creation so that they do not argue with him on the Day of Judgment.
6. Preparation for death before it arrives so that he is not exposed on the Day of Judgment.

The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Does every one of you want to enter Paradise?’ They said, ‘Yes! May Allah sacrifice us for you, O Messenger of Allah!’ He said, ‘Sever your long hopes and be shy of Allah as He truly deserves.’ They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, we are all shy of Allah.’ He said, ‘That is not shyness. Rather, shyness of Allah Ta’ala is to remember the graves and its trials, to preserve the chest and what it gathers, and to preserve the head and what it contains.’ [Sahih al-Jami']

And it is also reported in a sound narration (Sahih al-Jami’) that the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Rectification in the first part of this nation was in Zuhd (detachment from the excesses of this world) and Yaqin (certainty), and the destruction of the last part of this nation will be in greed and long hopes.’

Translated from ‘Tanbih al-Ghafilin’ by Imam al-Samarqandi (pg. 156-160)
