THE QUR’AAN CURSES
Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Mubaarak (Rahmatullah alayh) said: “There are many bearers of the Qur’aan Majeed who are cursed by the Qur’aan. When the Haafiz of the Qur’aan disobeys Allah Ta’ala, then from within him, the Qur’aan remonstrates: “Wallaah! What has overtaken you? Why have you borne me? Have you no shame?
Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu anhu) said: “When people are happy, the Haafiz should be sad. When they engage in futility and play, the Haafiz should be silent. When people display pride, he should adopt humility.”
AN AALIM OF THE HAQQ
“When an Aalim practices on his knowledge, then the hearts of the Mu’mineen incline towards him, and it will be only a person in whose heart is the disease (of nifaaq / kufr) who will dislike him.” (Ma’roof Karkhi – Rahmatullah alayh)
FEAR AT THE TIME OF MAUT
As Maut approached, Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu anhu) shed tears. When asked for the reason of his crying, he said: “The journey ahead is long. The provisions for the journey are little. Yaqeen is weak, and there is the fear of falling from the Siraat (The Bridge) into Jahannaam.”
