In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
A brother shared this with me the other day, and I wanted to pass it on. It is definitely something to make a stop and think about our very own condition!
Shaqeeq Bin Ibraheem (RA) says: ” In four things a person conforms with me by way of his tongue but opposes me by way of his deeds.
1)He says that we are the servants (and slaves) of Allah subhanahu wa tala,Yet does the deeds of free people.
2)He says that Allah subhanahu wa tala is responsible for our sustenance, yet his heart is not at ease upon this responsibility until at such time that he is not in possession of any worldly material.
3)He says that the hereafter holds virtue over the world, yet he always worries about hoarding wealth for this world (he has no worry for the hereafter).
4)He says that death is inevitable, it will definitely come, yet his deeds are like those who do not want to die.“
Did you find yourself in any of the above?
Subhan’Allah I found myself in all four of the above. May Allah strengthen our deen! Make He put the loveof akhirah above the love of dunya into our hearts.
A beautiful verse from the Quran:
…Such is the admonition given to him who believes in Allah and the Last Day. And for those who fear Allah, He (ever) prepares a way out, And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion.
