Do Not Be Like A Bad Labourer.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

Ma'amar Ibn Ahmad al-Asbahani, may Allah be Merciful to him, narrated in his 40 Hadith collection on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said:- The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, censured us in his khutba. He said:--

         "Oh Ummah of Muhammad !  A sage among the sages showed more understanding than you when his companions

        called him to pleasures and disobedience. He said, 'I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him, hoping for Paradise

      as a reward, and therefore be like a bad labourer: if he is given his wage he works, and if he is not given it, he does

     not work. And I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him out fear of the Fire and be also like a bad labourer: if he is

    fearful of his master he works, and if he is not, he does not work. I only worship Him for what He deserves, for He

   deserves to be worshiped.'
