Maalik Bin Deenaar (rahimahullaah) used to stand for long during the night whilst holding his beard and saying: ”O my Lord: Indeed, you know the dwellers of Paradise and the dwellers of the fire; so which of the two abodes is Maalik’s dwelling place?!” [Jaami-ul Uloom Wal-Hikam: page:68]
How worried are we with this affair?! If this was the concern of Maalik Bin Deenaar (a devout worshipper and man of waraa and taqwah), then how much do we worry about this afair in a day, a week, a month and in a year!? We ask Allaah for protection from heedlessness and false hopes.
