The Folly of Materialism

People get so attached to this world… either they work there socks of for a Haram Mortgage or home bought out right …

We need to always remember, everything will remain, when our time is up …

The only thing we will take with us is our Deeds InshAllah.

Ponder on this thought.

Working hard for the hereafter should be the focal point in every ones life. Neglecting the hereafter and working hard for this life, is the foolish mans downfall.

Allah is the True Owner (Malik) (of everything and everyone).

Why are we stressing?

Why do we work so hard for Dunya, when dunya is impossible to keep?

How foolish is man who works tirelessly and endlessly, in trying to gain that which is temporary.

Yet he puts absolutely no effort, in to that which is eternal and everlasting.
– Ali (Ra)

Allaah (subhana wa ta’ala) says in His Quran :

Know that this Dunya, this worldly life is nothing but play and amusement and nothing but beauty; and boasting between men and rivalry in wealth and children.

– Surat Al-Hadid Vs 20

In this Ayah Allaah (subhana wa ta’ala) tells us about the attributes of this world, attributes which many of us fail to recognize.

His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things competent.

– Surat Al-Hadid Vs 2
