The Sound Thinking of This Life


That man should consider the wealth, authority and materialistic capabilities as only means for accomplishing good deeds for the world to come. In fact, this world is not to be condemned for itself, rather commending or condemning should be directed to the accomplishments of the slave. This world is only a bridge leading to the world to come, and a source of supply for reaching Jannah ( the Heavenly Garden). The best of joys which the people of Jannah gain is only a result of what they have planted in this world. This world is the abode of Jihad (fighting in the cause of Allah), prayer, fasting and expending in the cause of Allah, and a field of racing for good deeds. Allah the Exalted will say to the people of Jannah:

  

“Eat and Drink joyfully because of the good deeds you did in the days gone by.” [ Surah 69:24]

[Transcribed from: The Book of Tawheed, Page 83|Compiled by: Shaykh Saleh Al-Fawzaan|Translation and annotation by mahmoud Ridha Murad|Darussalam 1997]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
