I read an amazing hadith on Kitabu’z-Zuhd ve’r-Rekaik by Abdullah b. Mubarak (ra). I dont have the book in English so I will try to translate it

Shuayb b Ebu Said’de (ra) narrates:

A man comes to Prophet (saw) and asks: “How would I know about my situation?”

Prophet (saw) replies:

If you intend to do something regarding “dunya” and it becomes EASY for you; and you intend to do something regarding “ahirat” and it becomes DIFFICULT for you YOU ARE SURLY IN A BAD SITUATION

On the other hand, If you intend to do something regarding “ahirat” and it becomes EASY for you; and If you intend to do something regarding “dunya” and it becomes DIFFICULT for you YOU ARE SURLY IN A GOOD SITUATION


( In the hadith when it says dunya it means the haram things, and when it says ahirat it means prayers)

This whole religion revolves around knowing the truth and acting by it, and action must be accompanied by patience.

Because we live in an era of information, everybody reaches the knowledge. However, ACTING according to that knowledge is what is required. Those people are rare.

People who are acting according to the learnt knowledge and are doing it with IHKLAS are very very very rare!
