How Luxury could Destroy Us

How Luxury could Destroy Us

Sheikh Uthaymeen -may Allah have mercy on him- said,

“Indeed, The more a person get into the luxury, and the more things opened up for them, the more evils also opened up for them. Indeed, the luxury is what destroy human being, because if a person have prioritized luxury and the pampering of himself, he would certainly neglecting the pampering of his heart, and thus his greatest ambition is to pamper his body, whereas it will only end with maggots and rottenness. This is a disaster.

This is what destroy the people of today. You almost can’t find anyone but saying, “What about our house? What car will we have? What carpet will we have? What will we eat?” To the extent that even those who have learned the religious sciences, some of them learned it to gain position or authority that could help them to get the worldly pleasures. It seems like human being are not created for a noble aim, and the world and its pleasures are just medium!

Beggar, A Lowly Profession [Part 2]

The Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- promised Paradise for those who don’t beg from others

عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ قَالَ وَكَانَ ثَوْبَانُ مَوْلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ –صلى الله عليه وسلم- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ –صلى الله عليه وسلم- (( مَنْ تَكَفَّلَ لِى أَنْ لاَ يَسْأَلَ النَّاسَ شَيْئًا وَأَتَكَفَّلَ لَهُ بِالْجَنَّةِ؟)). فَقَالَ ثَوْبَانُ: أَنَا. فَكَانَ لاَ يَسْأَلُ أَحَدًا شَيْئًا.

It is narrated from Tsauban, a former slave of the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him-, he said that the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, “Who want to guarantee to me that he wouldn’t beg to human being at all, then I will guarantee for him the Paradise?” (A narrator said), Tsauban replied, “I will.” Indeed, he (Tsauban) never begged anything from anyone.” [Narrated by Abu Dawud, no. 1643. Sheikh Al Albani classified it as valid hadith in “Shahih Al-Jami’” no. 6604.]
