Mālik b. Dīnār said, 

❝If the dunyā consisted of temporary gold, and the Hereafter of eternal sand, then a smart person should choose the eternal sand and ignore the temporary gold!”

I say: ‘Well, then how difficult can our choice really be, when we know that the dunyā consists of temporary sand and the Hereafter consists of eternal gold?’❞

(al-Qurṭubī, al-Jāmiʿ li-Aḥkām al-Qurʾān: 20/22)

Play the Long Game  ?

لو فرج الله عن يوسف في أول ابتلائه ، لما آلت إليه خزائن مصر... قد يطول البلاء ليعظم العطاء... فثق بالله و لا تستعجل

❝ If Allah granted relief to Prophet Yusuf at the first hurdle of his weariness (and fatigue), then contrast that with the treasures of Egypt that came to him... One's trial/tribulation may be prolonged in order to magnify the gifting... Trust in Allah and do not be in haste. ❞

~ عبد العزيز الشثري

Be Keen In Fulfilling Needs Of Others

Ibn Al Qayyīm رحمه الله narrates that Ibn Taymīyyāḥ (رحمه الله) used to race towards the fulfilling of people's needs very earnestly,  because he knew that everytime he helped someone, Allāh would help him.

[Rawdat-al Muhibbin 1/168]

‏العمل بغير إخلاص ولا اقتداء -بالنبي عليه الصلاة والسلام- كالمسافر يملأُ جرابه رملا يثقله ولا ينفعه

"Offering deeds without ikhlās and without following the Prophet ﷺ is like a traveler who fills his pouch with sand, it only burdens him and brings him no benefit."

~الفوائد (٤٩)

Imam Birgivi (Rahimahullah)

“To be annoyed at yourself because you have been lax in worship or you realize that you have sinned is correct, so long as it is not excessive. When your anger leads you to decide to redeem yourself by good actions and extra prayers, it is commendable.”

Temporary pleasure, permanent loss - is it worth it? 


Al-Imām ibn al-Qayyim said:

“How can he be considered an intellectual, he who sells Paradise and all that it contains, for one hour of passing pleasure...?”

[Al-Fawāid | Page 45]

Ibn al-Qayyim رحمه الله said: “The strangest of things is to know Him ﷻ yet not love Him, and that you hear the caller [to salah] but fail to respond, and that you know of the profit to be gained from dealing with Him, yet prefer dealing with others.⠀

That you recognize that severity of His anger, yet oppose Him. That you taste the misery and anguish in disobeying Him, yet abstain from seeking the delight found within obeying Him. ⠀

How can you sense the hollowness in your heart when incessantly delving into trivial speech yet not long for it to be relieved through his remembrance.

How can you experience the sorrow and agony in attaching your heart to other than Him, yet not seek solace in Him and turn back to Him?".

‎And even stranger yet, is that you know that you’re in dire need of Him ﷻ, yet turn away from Him and take part in all that distances you from Him.

(Istifhan)

Yaḥyā b. Abī Kathīr رحمه الله said:
