Are You not ashamed of yourself?


Ibn Ubayd rahimahullah said:

We visted Muhammad Ibn Su’qah and he said, ‘Shall I inform you of something which might avail you, because it has been of great help to myself?’


He said ” ‘Ata ibn Abu Raba’h told us:

People who were before you used to hate futile talk. They used to consider everything useless talk except the book of Allaah, the sunnah of His Messenger, enjoining good and forbidding evil and seeking one’s living.


Could you deny that over you there are appointed angels honourable angels in charge of you, one sitting on the right and one on the left, writing down all your deeds?


Are you not ashamed of yourself that most of your daily deeds have nothing to do with your religion or worldly gains except futile talk?”
