I Do Not Envy Anyone For Some Worldly Thing- Muhammed Ibn Seereen

Muhammad Ibn Seereen said: “I do not envy anyone for some worldly thing; for if he is going to be amongst the people of paradise, then how can I envy him for something of the worldly life, whilst he is destined for Paradise?! And if he is going to be amongst the people of the hell fire, then how can I envy him for something of the worldly life, whilst he is destined for the Hellfire?!”

[Az-Zudh Al-kabeer’ Number 845]

The Places of Residence are Three: ibn ul-Qayyim

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan mentioned in his explanation of Kitab at-Tawhid under the chapter [The Virtues of Tawhid and that which it Expiates from Sins], “The places of residence – as ibn ul-Qayyim mentioned – are three;

The First: The residence of this world, and it is the residence of actions and gaining [good deeds].

The Second: The residence of the Barzakh, and that is the residence within the graves, a barzakh between this world and the Hereafter. The term barzakh means a “divider” or “barrier” [i.e. the life within the graves is the seperator between this world and the Hereafter], and the life within the graves is [therefore] termed as the life of the barzakh. Within it are amazing affairs; in it is blessing or punishment,either a pit from the pits of the Hell-Fire, or a garden from the gardens of Paradise. The dead remain in their graves until Allah the Mighty and Majestic wishes to resurrect and gather them for accountability and recompense…[and so] this residence is a waiting station [until resurrection].

The Third: The residence of recompense, which is the Day of Judgement, [either] Paradise or Hell; and this residence does not perish nor cease ever. If a person believes in these two abodes [Paradise and Hell], then indeed that will cause a person to perform righteous actions and [seek] repentance from sins and wrong-doing. So if he is certain that Paradise exists, and that he cannot enter this Paradise except with righteous actions – then [surely] he will act [upon righteousness]. [Similarly] if he is certain that Hell exists and that he will enter it [if he performs] sins, disbelief and evil actions – then [surely] he will be wary and cautious of that and repent to Allah the Mighty and Majestic.

Therefore, eemaan in Paradise and Hell causes the slave to perform righteous actions and to seek repentance from sins and evil actions, as for the one who does not believe in the Hereafter, then this one will act in accordance to what his desires dictate to him and what his soul craves and he will not hold himself accountable [and reflect] ever”.

The Religion is Advice: Enjoin the Good & Forbid the Evil

A brief advice to the brothers and sisters, baarakAllaahu feekum:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Indeed in the hadith of tameem ad daarimee which is well known the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

‘Ad-Deen An-Naseehah, Ad-Deen An-Naseehah, Ad-Deen An-Naseehah’
Muslim

Allah says:

Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islâm), enjoining Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.
Aali Imran verse 104.

And He says:

He ( Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) commands them for Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds, and all that Islâm has forbidden); he allows them as lawful At-Taiyibât [(i.e. all good and lawful) as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.], and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khabâ’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.)
Al A’raf verse 157

And in a Hadith the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

One of you does not truly believe until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself.
Bukhaari & Muslim

And he  sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said

‘Verily one of you does not truly believe until I become more beloved to him than his father, his son and all the people.’   
Bukhaari & Muslim

We would like to remind our honourable brothers and sisters of the great sin of image making, an issue that is so serious it is one of the Major Sins and as such it’s severity and grave nature has been related to us in many ahadith of the prophet sallaahu alaihi wa sallam.
