Seeking Dunya - By Zohra Irfan (QI- 2016)

Our Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) was blessed with eloquent and concise speech. He would say a single sentence and it had depth as deep as the depth of an ocean. One such profound hadith which struck me is the following one.

Two hungry wolves let loose among sheep are not more harmful then a person craving after wealth and status is to his Deen (Religion).”

{at- Tirmidhee said, “It is hasan saheeh.”}

Imagine two wolves let loose among sheep. Wouldn’t there be a huge massacre? How many sheep do you think will be left alive? If any, do you think they would be left physically untouched? Now let us apply this to what our Messenger (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) said. A person who craves after wealth and status will cause more damage to his deen that these wolves will be able to cause to the sheep. This implies that if not none, very little of the person’s deen will be left in that case.

And you love wealth with immense love.{Qur’an 89:20}

Wars have been fought, kings have been assassinated, common folk have been looted and murdered for wealth. Wealth, when used in the pleasure of Allah can be the biggest asset. But when it is gained and used against the pleasure of Allah, it can become the greatest cause for a person’s destruction.

Women have left the duties Allah has placed upon them and this has resulted in the breakdown of families, moral and spiritual degradation of the next generation and the loss of peace and stability in households. Why have we chosen this lifestyle? The answer is simple – the want for the society to recognize us as independent working women and to have wealth in our hands no matter what it takes. While it is alright for a lady to work in an environment which is Islamically acceptable, we often find ourselves settling for jobs where we know that we may eventually land up losing our deen.

Allah’s refuge is sought.

The price we pay for the dunya is high. We care very little about free-mixing and the gradual loss of modesty and hijab. A heart which has life in it, which feels guilty over disobedience to Allah dies over a period of time and we begin to move further and further away from the Mercy of our Maker.

It’s not only working excessively towards amassing wealth that kills the deen inside a person – it is wanting fame and reputation too. One of the worst and the most miserable kind of lives that a person can live is seeking the approval and appreciation of people.

“He who thinks that he is free from the criticism of people is a madman for even the Lord of the Worlds Himself has been wrongfully criticised.”– Imam Ash Shafiee

We will never ever ever be able to please everyone in our lives and to work towards attaining it is mere stupidity and destruction. When fame and popularity enters the heart of a person, it kills the sincerity in the heart and all that remains is a hollow shell only the outside of which looks pleasing and appealing.

O you who have believed, let not your wealth and your children divert you from remembrance of Allah . And whoever does that – then those are the losers.{Qur’an 63:9}

A reminder to myself first and foremost

سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك

Subḥānaka Allāhumma wa biḥamdika, 'ash-hadu 'an lā 'ilāha 'illā 'Anta, 'astaghfiruka wa 'atūbu 'ilayk

Glory is to You, O Allah, and praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.

{An Nisai- Hisn al muslim}
