Allah says about the kuffaar and sinners (interpretation of the meaning):
whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this
Qur’an nor acts on its teachings) verily, for him is a life of hardship,
and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection”
Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
“But whosoever turns away from My Reminder”
means: goes against My command and that which I have revealed to My
Messenger, and turns away from it and ignores it, and follows something
other than its guidance, “verily, for him is a life of hardship” i.e., in this world,
so he will have no tranquility or peace of mind, rather he will be in a
state of anxiety because of his misguidance, even if he appears
outwardly to be living a life of luxury, wearing what he wants,
eating what he wants, living where he wants; but so long as his heart
has no certain faith and is not guided, then he will be in a state of
anxiety and confusion and doubt, and he will remain doubtful and
hesitant. This is part of the life of hardship.
Tafseer Ibn Katheer (5/322, 323)
Uthmaan b. Affan:
“I hate for even one day to pass me by, without having looked inside the Qur’an once.“
[al-Bidaayah v.7 p.215]
Ibn Masūd said:
“These hearts are reservoirs, so busy them with the Quran and do not busy them with something else.”
[az-Zuhd, Page: 133]
If the slave were granted this worldly life and all that it contains, and then said “Alhamdulillah” then his saying of this would be greater than what he was granted; because everything of this worldly life vanishes but the praise of Allah never does.
I pray that Allah Subhanhu wa ta’alla grant pious, loving and caring spouse to all unmarried brothers and sisters in faith.
Aameen Allahuma Aameen.
