    Four things that most people believe in but their actions belie.


    Shaqique Ibne Ibrahim rahmatullahi alayh says: People seem to agree with me when they say that they believe in four things, but their actions belie what they claim to believe:-


    1 They say that they are slaves (bondsmen) of Allah Taala, but their actions betray that they regard themselves to be freemen;


    2 They say that Allah Taala has taken upon Himself the responsibility to give us our sustenance, but they never rest content until they hoard enough of worldly provisions;


    3 They say that akhirah (Hereafter) is preferable to this world, but they are ever engaged in amassing wealth, and are least concerned about akhirah.


    4 They say that death is inevitable, but they are absorbed in worldly activities as though they were to live here forever.

    Jazaak Allahu khayr, bro.
    ٰ


    {And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in darkness, never to emerge therefrom? Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing.}

    This reminds me of a quote from a book I read in my English class, "Tuesdays with Morrie":

    "Everyone knows they are going to die, but no one believes it."

    When I read this quote it made me think of the Qur'an.
