Reality of the Dunyaa in the Eyes of The Truthful People– By Imaam ibnul Qayyim [rahimaullaah]: O Allaah! Grant Us Tawfeeq And Include Us Amongst These People

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

When those granted the Tawfeeq to realise the [inferior] status of the Dunyaa and its short period of residence, they kill their desires [i.e. refrain from evil desires by the Tawfeeq of Allaah] in the Dunyaa due to seeking after the eternal life of [the aakhirah]. When they become heedful of [that state of] slumber into heedlessness, they return with streneous effort to recapture that which the enemy [Iblees] snatched from them [i.e. good deeds] during the times of idleness [or indolence]. When the path to [obedience] become prolonged, they understand and recall the goal [behind their efforts], so that which seemed to be far away [i.e. the Aakhirah] becomes close – every time their lifespan is prolonged, they are reminded of the statement of Allaah: [هَـٰذَا يَوۡمُكُمُ ٱلَّذِى ڪُنتُمۡ تُوعَدُونَ -This is your Day which you were promised] [Ref 1]

Al-Fawaa’id page 77. An Excerpt. abridged and slightly paraphrased


إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَقَتۡ لَهُم مِّنَّا ٱلۡحُسۡنَىٰٓ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ عَنۡہَا مُبۡعَدُونَ

لَا يَسۡمَعُونَ حَسِيسَهَا‌ۖ وَهُمۡ فِى مَا ٱشۡتَهَتۡ أَنفُسُهُمۡ خَـٰلِدُونَ لَا يَحۡزُنُهُمُ ٱلۡفَزَعُ ٱلۡأَڪۡبَرُ وَتَتَلَقَّٮٰهُمُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕڪَةُ هَـٰذَا يَوۡمُكُمُ ٱلَّذِى ڪُنتُمۡ تُوعَدُونَ

Verily those for whom the good has preceded from Us, they will be removed far therefrom (Hell) [e.g. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary); ‘Uzair (Ezra), etc.]. They shall not hear the slightest sound of it (Hell), while they abide in that which their ownselves desire. The greatest terror (on the Day of Resurrection) will not grieve them, and the angels will meet them, (with the greeting): “This is your Day which you were promised.”
