In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Some of The Things That Captivates Insincere Hearts:
Sometimes attracted towards vying for precedence in honour and leadership; captivated [or enthralled] by the one who praises him even with falsehood; shows enmity to the one who censures him even with truth; sometimes captivated [or enthralled] by Dirham and Deenaar [i.e. wealth, money].

We seek Allaah’s Protection from this evil state of affairs. Aameen
