Laziness: Blaming Each Other


 
“At the end of time there will be people whose best actions will be blaming each other, also known as the lazy ones.”

’Abdullah ibn Mas‘ūd [d. 32H]

A Fly or a Mountain?


‘Abdullah b. Mas’ûd (Allaah be pleased with him) said:

animated water and mountains


“The believer sees his sins as if he is sitting at the foot of a mountain fearing that it might fall on him, while the sinner (fâjir) sees his sins as a fly that lands on his nose, he just waves it away.”

Al-Bukhârî, Al-Sahîh, The Book of Supplications, Chapter on Tawbah.


Ibn Hajr quotes in his commentary, Fath Al-Bârî:

Ibn Abî Jumrah said, 

“The reason for this [fear] is that the heart of a believer is illuminated; so when he sees from himself something that goes against what he illuminates his heart with, it is very distressing to him. The wisdom behind giving the example of a mountain is that a person might find some way to escape from other dangers, but if a mountain falls on a person he does not survive. In short, the believer is dominated by fear (of Allaah) due to the strength of îmân he has; he does not therefore feel falsely secure about being punished because of his sins. This is the way of the Muslim: he always fears and checks on himself, his good deeds are little to him and he fears even the small bad deeds he has done.”

Homeless & Senseless


It is reported that 'Abdullah b. Mas'ud (Allaah be pleased with him) said:

This world (the dunya) is [only taken as] a home by those who will have no real home [in Jannah], & it is the wealth of those who will have no real wealth, & it is gathered & collected for by those who have no real intelligence.

[Ibn Abi Al-Dunya, Dhamm Al-Dunya article 16.]
