Do Not Consider Yourself Safe From Four

1
 “The people of knowledge and insight do not consider themselves safe from four things:

1     . A past sin which he committed and he does not know whether Allah will forgive him for it or punish him for it

2.      What is left of his life, whether there is something therein waiting to destroy him;

3.    A favor that Allah bestowed upon him, perhaps it is a plot which will lead him step by step to his eventual destruction and ruin;

4.   Deviance which is beautified for him so that he sees it to be guidance and in a split second, his heart can deviate and he will be stripped of his deen and he does not even realize it.”

Doors Of Success Have Been Closed

96887570_e5cdabd4dc_m

 

“The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:

 

  1. Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allah instead of thanking Allah for them,
  2. their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions,
  3. the hastiness to sin and delaying repentance,
  4. the deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as examples,
  5. the turning away of the dunya from them while they chase it,
  6. and the approach of the afterlife towards them while they turn away from it.”
