    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 Ta’ala, but their actions betray that they regard themselves to be freemen;


    2 They say that Allah Ta’ala 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.

    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.
