Slaves To This World

Recommended Posts

This weekend saw the arrival of 'Black Friday' a tradition mainly in America but now having influence on the other side of the Atlantic where shops hold big sales in the run up to Christmas. It is actually sad to see people behave in such a stupid way for one day. 






Surah Al Fajr is very apt for this disease that is affecting humans. This extreme desire for wealth and material things. All these things will not benefit us in the next life. And Surah Al Fajr mentions some historical nations which were wealthy but Allah destroyed them. This materialistic culture is also affecting the Muslim world as people try to beat each other with the latest fashion and technology and show off their latest mobile phones. Remember the words of Allah:


No! But you do not honor the orphan

And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor

And you consume inheritance, devouring [it] altogether,

And you love wealth with immense love. (Al Fajr 17-20).


Spend your money wisely, be a slave to your Creator, not to this world.

Assalamo alaoikum


What a beautiful post sister, and a reminder to us all. The first verse brought tears to my eyes.
