The Dunya is Cursed…

The Prophet, sallalahu alaihi wa salam, said:

“The dunya is cursed. Cursed is all that is in it except for the remembrance of Allah, and that which resembles it, a scholar, and a student (of knowledge).” [Related by Tirmidhee, Ibn Maajah, and Bayhaqi. The wording is taken from Shaykh al-Albaanee’s Sahīh at-Targhīb wat-Tarhīb (1/34)]

ALI IBN ABI TALIB, radi’Allahu anhum:

“Verily, the Dunya is coming to an end and the Akhirah is coming to a beginning and they both have children. So be children of the Akhirah and don’t be children of the Dunya. For verily today there is action with no account and tomorrow there is account with no action” [Related by Ibn al-Qayyim]

HASSAN AL BASREE, radi’Allahu anhum:

“So beware of this land (the dunya) that is falling down and is misleading and deceiving, being decorated by its deceit and having eluded (others) by its delusion, and having killed its people with its hopes. It looks forward with anticipation towards the one who proposes to it for marriage. Hence it becomes like the unveiled bride – all the eyes are looking towards it, and the souls are in love with it, and the hearts are captivated by it.” [Related by Abu Nu’aym in al-Hilyah (2/135-136)]


Muslims More Numerous Than Catholics…

Muslims Surpass Catholics the Vatican Reports

Thauban reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallahu alaihi wa salaam, said:

  • “It is near that the nations will call one another against you just as the eaters call one another to their dishes.”
  • Somebody asked: “Is this because we will be few in numbers that day?”
  • He said: “Nay, but that day you shall be numerous, but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take the fear of you away from your enemies and will place weakness into your hearts.”
  • Somebody asked: “What is this weakness?
  • He said: “The love of the world and the dislike of death.” (Abu Dawud)

“Nay, when (the soul) reaches to the collar bone [i.e up to the throat to exit]”

On Submission

If your fathers, your sons, your brothers,

your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained,

the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight …

are dearer to you than Allâh and His Messenger,

and striving hard and fighting in His Cause,

then wait until Allâh brings about His Decision (torment).

And Allâh guides not the people who are Al-Fâsiqûn

[At-Tawbah 9:24]

Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُلْهِكُمْ أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَلَا أَوْلَادُكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ

O you who believe! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. And whosoever does that, then they are the losers.

Why “Fear” the Life of this World?

Dunya: (the life of) this world; a test from Allah; deceiving enjoyment; temporary abode

Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children… the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment. (Al-Hadid 57:20)

Verily, the Promise of Allâh is true, let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allâh. (Luqman 31:33)
