Ibrahim ibn Adham: “Your hearts have become dead due to ten things”

 

Ibrahim ibn Adham was asked about the saying of Allah the Exalted,

‘And Your Lord said, Supplicate to me and I will answer your supplication.’

 

“We supplicate but our prayers are not answered!” He said, “Your hearts have become dead due to ten things –

1– you have known Allah but have not fulfilled His right;

 

2– you have read the Book of Allah but did not abide by it;

 

3– you proclaimed enmity of Satan but made him your guardian and protector;

 

4– you claimed love of the Messenger but you left his path and his Tradition (sunnah);

 

5– you claimed love of Paradise but you did not work for it;

 

6– you claimed fear of the Hellfire but did not renounce committing sins;

 

7– you claimed that you believed that death was a reality but you did not ready yourselves for it;

 

8- you busied yourselves with the faults of others and neglected your own faults;

 

9– you eat from the sustenance that Allah provides for you but do not show gratitude; and

 

10– you bury your dead ones but do not take heed from it.”
