Some of The Most Beautified Things In The Eyes of Men! [By Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah)]

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

Allaah [The Most High] said:

زُيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ حُبُّ الشَّهَوَاتِ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ وَالْبَنِينَ وَالْقَنَاطِيرِ الْمُقَنطَرَةِ مِنَ الذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ وَالْخَيْلِ الْمُسَوَّمَةِ وَالْأَنْعَامِ وَالْحَرْثِ ۗ ذَٰلِكَ مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَاللَّهُ عِندَهُ حُسْنُ الْمَآبِ

Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver [wealth], branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world’s life; but Allah has the excellent return [Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.] with Him. [3:14]

Women: They are the greatest adornment of this worldly life, the most coveted thing and the greatest trial [i.e. the impious women]. Children: They are a source of honour and pride for a man etc Gold and silver: They are a means of fulfilling one’s desires [i.e. wealth]. Branded beautiful horses: They are a source of might, pride and protection for their owners, and instruments of war, conquests etc Cattle: They are utilised for riding, food, clothing (i.e. their furs and skins) and other benefits. Well-tilled land [i.e. Vegetation]: A source of nourishment for them and their animals, and also a source of fruits and medication [i.e. through plants].

Allaah [Glorified be He] stated that all these things are the pleasures of this present worldly life. Then He [The Most High] urged His slaves towards the enjoyment of the Hereafter, saying: [ قُلْ أَؤُنَبِّئُكُم بِخَيْرٍ مِّن ذَٰلِكُمْ ۚ لِلَّذِينَ اتَّقَوْا عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا وَأَزْوَاجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ وَرِضْوَانٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بَصِيرٌ بِالْعِبَادِ – Say: “Shall I inform you of things far better than those? For Al-Muttaqun [the pious] there are Gardens [Paradise] with their Lord, underneath which rivers flow. Therein [is their] eternal [home] and Azwajun Mutahharatun [purified mates or wives] [i.e. they will have no menses etc] and Allah will be pleased with them. And Allah is All-Seer of the (His) slaves”. [3:15]

Know Yourself & Prepare to Meet Your Lord – Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan

Ponder! Why were you created? Ponder! To where are you travelling?

The one with intellect contemplates regarding his (current state), he contemplates regarding that which is approaching him, therefore he prepares for that which is in front of him.

The worldly life is a passing life and the Hereafter is an everlasting abode. The worldly life is the abode of action and the Hereafter is the abode of recompense.

Know your own reality! May Allah have mercy upon you.
Everyone must ponder regarding himself, what has he prepared for the meeting with Allah, The Glorified, The Most High.

{So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.} Al-Kahf:110

What Knowledge Demands – Shaykh Zayd Al Madkhalee

 

Al Allaamah Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi (Rahimahullah) said:

It is not possible for knowledge to be gained except by learning. And learning must be undertaken and carried out with hard work (effort and seriousness) and diligence (careful and persistent effort), and it does not have an end point, up until a person departs from the life where he acts (The worldly life) to the life in which he is recompensed (The Hereafter) for his actions.
