Who Should Be Your Companion? Golden Advice of Sufyan Ath-Thawree

Advice of Sufyan Al-Thawree (rahimahullah) to Alee ibn Al-Hasan As-Sulamee:

Your companion should be the one who prevents you from being preoccupied with things of the worldly life that will divert you from Allaah, and one who makes you desire and work for the Hereafter.

Beware of accompanying people who make the dunyah their goal, those who are engrossed in speaking about the worldly life; indeed they will corrupt your religion and your heart.

Remember death much, and seek a lot of forgiveness from what has passed of your sins, and ask Allah for safety for what remains of your life.

Reality of the Worldly Life and The Cause of Animosity Between The People’ By Imaam An-Nawawi (rahimahullaah)


Imaam Nawawi (rahimahullaah) said:

Know that the one (residing) in the worldly life is a guest and what he (possesses) in his hands is a loan-a guest is a traveller and a loan is to be repaid.  The worldly life is something whose presence is visible and both the pious and evil sinner eat from it. It (i.e. blameworthy competition for the worldly things) is hateful to the friends of Allaah and beloved to the people of dunyah (i.e. those engage in blameworthy competition for it); so whoever competes them in that which is beloved to them, they will become angry with him…… up until the Imaam said: The Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) directed a person to abstain from what the people possess if he wants the people to love him and that he abandons (blameworthy) love of the worldly life because there is nothing in the hands of the people that makes them hate one another and engage in (blameworthy) competition, except the worldly (things)

The Wisdom in Creating the Abode of the Dunya & The Abode of The Hereafter – Shaykh Zayd Bin Haadi

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allaah – The All Knowing, The All Wise, The Most Benign and Kind, The Lord and Nuturer, The Creator and The Tremendous One, The Magnificent – decreed the creation of the two abodes, the worldly life and the afterlife; then He (Glorified Be He and Free is He from all imperfections) made the first (abode)a place for the (performance of righteous) action and the second (abode) a place of recompense. Indeed He (Glorified Be He and Free is He from all imperfections ) obligated on humans and the Jinn with obligations that are based on commands and prohibitions, and recompense is based on this on the day of judgement.

[Allaah said]:

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ

So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it.

وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ

And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it.

Until we meet Allah – Ash Shaykh Rabee bin Haadi Al Madkhakee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Al Imaam Ash Shaykh Rabee bin Haadi Al Madkhalee – May Allah preserve him – said:

“Indeed the meaning of
upon the sunnah, is steadfastness upon Islaam in its entirety: its foundations; its branches; the aqeedah and the manhaj. We are steadfast upon it and cling tight to it until we meet Allah – tabaaraka wa ta’aala.”
