Faqeeh Abul Laith Samarqandi رحمه الله writes in Tambeehul Ghāfileen that Allah Ta'ala once sent the following revelation to a Nabi عليه السلام: "O child of Ādam! You purchase Jahannum for an exorbitant price but fail to purchase Jannah for a small sum."
People consider spending exorbitant sums upon the prompting of some sinners, thereby purchasing Jahannum for themselves. However, they find it difficult to spend a small sum upon the request of a poor beggar, whereas this is the price for Jannah.
Let us examine our lives and our preferences. Our Beloved Master Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلي الله عليه وسلم has advised that a wedding with the least expenses will earn the most amount of blessings. Sadly, we choose to openly violate the Shariah by involving ourselves in futile and wasteful activities having no link to the simplicity advocated by Sayyidina Rasoolullah صلي الله عليه وسلم.
Faqeeh Abul Laith Samarqandi رحمه الله shares three perspectives which will certainly guide us;
1. Look at the rewards to be attained in the Hereafter. It is foolish to be inclined towards the things of the world and rely on them despite possessing proper knowledge.
2. Helplessness is not to make an effort for actions despite possessing the knowledge of their rewards in the Hereafter.
3. That person will attain the comforts of Jannah who forsakes the comforts of this world. That person will be wealthy in Jannah who forsakes this perishable world and is content with just a little.
May Allah Ta'ala incline us towards obedience and simplicity.
امين يارب العالمين
