Fruits for the Week

Header Last edition English


Allah (swt) said: “And my guidance cannot come except from Allah, in Him I trust and unto Him I repent.” (Qur’an 11: 88), and said: “You alone we worship, and You alone we ask for help.” (Qur’an 1: 5)

The Prophet (saw) said: “Two hungry wolves let loose among sheep are no more harmful to them than a man’s craving of wealth and status are to his religion.” (Tirmidhi and Ibn Hibban)

The craving for wealth and status is more harmful to one’s religion than two hungry wolves are to sheep without a shepherd. The wolves will obviously devour the sheep, whose fluffy white coats will become stained with blood. By the same token, one’s adherence to the religion will suffer great consequences.

Two kind of Muslims:

1.Partial Muslims

Some Muslims profess faith in Allah (swt) and the Messenger and declare Islam as their religion; but then they confine this Islam to only a part of their lives. To the extent of this part, they express great attachment to Islam, extensively perform worship rituals like prayers, use of the rosary, remembrance of Allah’s name. they are very particular in confirming to outward piety in matters like food, dress and other external social, cultural customs. Thus they are fully religious.
