Iblees tries to make people lazy procrastinators, and to make them have hope (of a long life)..

Ibn al-Jawzi رحمه الله  said:

Many Jews and Christians contemplated joining Islaam, but Iblees convinced them to procrastinate saying: “Do not rush, look more into the issue,” until they die as non-Muslims.

He also causes the sinner to procrastinate seeking repentance.

A poet said:

“Do not rush into committing a sin, and then procrastinate repenting.”

A Bridge is Not a Home


It was reported that (Prophet) Nuh lived in a house made of wool for nine hundred and fifty years. The Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم never put a stone over another [his house was built of mud] and on Umar ibn al-Khattab’s رضي اللّه عنـه garment there were twelve patches. This is because they understood that this world is a bridge and a bridge should not be taken as a home. Thus, whoever fails to be aware of this knowledge will be afflicted with the disease of Sharah1, and should cure himself by seeking knowledge and contemplating the biographies of wise scholars.
