“It is written in the Torah that he who……..” by Wahb ibn Munabbih (Rahimahullah)

 

Wahb ibn Munabbih said, “It is written in the Torah,

He who prepares provisions [for the Hereafter] in this world will be safe from Allah’s punishment on the Day of Judgement;

he who leaves hatred will be praised on the Day of Judgement in front of the whole creation;

he who abandons love of leadership will be honoured on the Day of Judgement in front of the Omnipotent King;

he who abandons the excesses of the dunya will be blissful amongst the righteous ones [on the Day of Judgement];

he who abandons quarrelling in this world will be amongst the winners on the Day of Judgement;

he who abandons miserliness in this world will be mentioned in front of the whole of creation on the Day of Judgement;

he who abandons repose in this world will be happy on the Day of Judgement;

he who abandons the prohibited in this world will be in the company of the Prophets on the Day of Judgement;

he who abandons looking at that which has been prohibited in this world, Allah will delight his eyes on the Day of Judgement in Paradise;

he who abandons wealth and chooses poverty in this world, Allah will raise him on the Day of Judgement amongst the beloved and the Prophets of Allah;

he who assists others in fulfilling their needs, Allah will make him free from all needs in this world and in the next.

 

 

He who wishes to have good company instead of solitude in his grave should wake up in the darkness of the night and pray;

he who wishes to be in the shade of the Throne of the Merciful should become an ascetic;

he who wishes his bring to account to be easy should advise himself and his brothers;

he who wishes the angels to be his visitors should become Godconscious;

he who wishes to live in the delight of Paradise should remember Allah during the night and day;

he who wishes to enter Paradise without any bringing to account should repent to Allah with a sincere repentance;

he who wishes to be rich should become contented with what Allah the Exalted his allotted for him;

he who wishes to be a man of  understanding in the sight of Allah should have fear of Allah;

he who wishes to be wise should seek knowledge;

he who wishes to be safe from people should not mention anyone except with good and take a lesson from his own self and ponder over why and from what he was created;

he who wants dignity and  honor  in both the dunya and in the Hereafter should give preference to the Hereafter over the dunya;

he who wishes for al Firdaws (the highest rank in Paradise) and infinite happiness should not waste his life in the vices of the dunya;

he who wishes for Paradise in this world and the next should adopt the path of generosity, because the one who is generous is close to Paradise and far from Hell;

he who wishes his heart to be enlightened with the complete light should adopt the path of contemplation and of taking lessons [from life and creation];

he who wishes to have a body that patiently endures [hardships], a tongue that is in constant remembrance [of Allah], and a heart which is fearful [of Him] should adopt the path the path of seeking forgiveness for the believers – male and female, and for the Muslims – male and female.”

[Preparing For The Day Of Judgement By: Imaam Ibn Hajar Al‘ Asqalani, page 46-47]
