Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: “اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ”, “Annamā l-ḥayātu d-dunyā laʿibun wa-lahwun wa-zīnatun wa-tafākhurun baynakum wa-takāthurun fī l-amwāli wa-l-awlād”, “Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, multiplying, (in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children.” (Qur’an 57:20).
Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla says the life of Dunyā is play and amusement, multiplying and boasting. “I am better than you. You are lower than me.” “Put on airs”, they say in Turkish. And most people know Dunyā as entertainment and amusement. On top of that, he thinks he is something, and he is superior to someone else. This is not an acceptable attribute. Because Allāh ﷻ knows. Allāh ﷻ is All-Seeing, Allāh ﷻ is All-Knowing. Whatever you have done, whatever you are doing, nothing is hidden from Him ﷻ. That’s why, you don’t gain anything from bragging and thinking you are something.
Mankind must know his limits. Because when he exceeds his limits, he harms himself. He stays under his own burden and is crushed. Eventually, because everything is in the Hand of Allāh ﷻ, Allāh ﷻ will show everything to people at the Time of Reckoning. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla will bring everyone to account.
Therefore, there are many ignorant people in Dunyā. Don’t be like them. Don’t act like them. Be from the beloved people of Allāh ﷻ. The beloved people of Allāh ﷻ know that Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is with them every second and all the time. Allāh ﷻ will give them rewards for their deeds. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla will give them.
It is of no benefit for the people to admire, love or value you. What’s beneficial is value from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. It is Allāh ﷻ who gives you value. It is He ﷻ who gives it. If you do as He ﷻ wants, you will have value. Value in the sight of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is what’s important. Value in Dunyā is nothing. Do not trust anyone. They value you and love you one day, they like you one day, and the next day they humiliate you, insult and curse you. Theirs is not value.
Value is if Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla loves you, your value will exist forever in the sight of Allāh ﷻ. You become as He ﷻ wants. May Allāh ﷻ make us all do as He ﷻ wants. Not as people want, not as their egos want. May He ﷻ protect us from their liking. What most people like is not the good thing anyway. May Allāh ﷻ protect us.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha
