The world-Avoid extremes

Post by Taalib on Sun Aug 23, 2009 3:45 pm

Neither be so engrossed in the world that you be come totally immersed and lost in it nor abandon it entirely. The consequence of total immersion in the 'Dunya' is the fear of an evil death. A man who is fully engrossed in worldly affairs develops an aversion for departing from the world. At the end of his life he perceives Allah Ta'ala as the One who seperates him from his object of love (the world). There is therefore the fear of such a person developing animosity for Allah Ta'aala at the time of death. This is a great danger. (May Allah Ta'aala save us). Do not commit the opposite extreme of totally abandoning the world and its lawful means and agencies. Moderation is not to abandon the lawful means and agencies of earning a livelihood (for example) when this is necessary. By remaining within the limits, the worldly agencies also aid one's deen.
However, abandon such worldly engrossment which transgress the limits of Shari'ah. Such engrossment is infact 'Hubbud-Dunya' (love of the world). The world is extremely treacherous. It never left anyone unscathed. It has blemished and contaminated everyone (who indulged in its pursuit recklessly). When a person becomes treacherous by transgressing the limits of Shari'ah, the world succeeds in contaminating him.
