Hardship and Prosperity, Obedience And Sin

August 24, 2010

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

It is reported that Wuhayb b. Al-Ward – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

Verily, when Allâh the Exalted wants to honor a servant of His (for his righteousness), He afflicts him with a reduced means of living, illness in his body and a fearful life (all of which expiate his sins). Until death comes upon him, and he still has some sins, death is made hard upon him because of them, causing him to meet Allâh with no sins against him.

And when a person is of little value to Allâh (because of his disobedience), He makes his body healthy, broadens his means of living and makes him feel safe (the rewards for any good deeds he did are exhausted). Until death comes upon him, and he still has some good deeds, the experience of death is lightened for him because of them, and he meets Allâh with nothing.

Abu Bakr Al-Daynûrî, Al-Mujâlasah wa Jawâhir Al-’Ilm article 2865.


  1. SubhanAllah truly amazing. It’s interesting the criteria of Allah and of the people because a person is considered successful if he has all the things that is mentioned on the second type.

    May Allah keep us upon emaan. Ameen.

    • No doubt, it was amazing for me as well.
      May Allah keep us firm on His religion, ameen.

      BarakAllahu feekum,
      Abu Musa Atif
