‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
After that, it is commanded: Put your such false thoughts off, otherwise these will destroy you entirely. O Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! Say to them! Come unto me. I cause to understand you the Truth. You are thinking wrong that “the people, who fear God Almighty, have been creating difficulties for themselves by countenancing not unto the world. How many buds have been opening in the world. New things are being invented gradually. New experiments are showing their consequences. We see that in fact the scientists succeeded to perfection. Many of those hindrances have been removed and are being removed day by day; which did exist in the path of worldly luxurious enjoyment. They have made the world a garden. Things of pleasure are abundant. Wealth has been overstocked. Facilities of meeting to one another are available. Goods of comfort are ready every time. You can do whatever you desire and go easily wherever you wish any time. They (who fear Allah Almighty) have been thick headed without any cause by giving up pleasures of such enjoyable life”.
Come and listen from Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) about them who will be the greatest losers after death. Behold! Those are the people who have been involved in the amusements of the world day and night, engaged in pleasantness of life, inclined to collect the wealth, are desirous of fame and pomp, are crazed of good food and well dress, are in a fit of lust frenzy, recreation, fun, rejoicing and amusement every time. Every individual desires that everything of the world should be in his possession. Other entire people should be his servants. If they work for him, they may take food; otherwise eat air”.
They think: Those entire are good works which are being done by us. Beauty of the world is due to us. We have been promoting education, inventing new things and providing different kinds of luxurious things.
Say to them O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): That will not be useful for you whatsoever you have been doing. When the Hour will come, you all will be finished. You will not be able to think about any precautionary measure and nor your any invented thing will be helpful.
