  • Punishment for oneself

    A person invited Hassan Basri (r.e) to a party. After eating food, for a change of taste people started backbiting (eating the flesh of their dead brother). Hassan Basri slowly got up & quietly left the party saying to his heart, "You are very fond of delicious meals in parties!" For the next three days he kept fast, praying & repenting to Allah (swt) to remove the impurity that had entered his heart through his ears.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    A Pious Muslim went to meat his friend. The friend's son opened the door and said, "Dad is sleeping". He replied, "Is this the time to sleep ? the Prophet (saw) disliked sleeping in the evening" On his way back he realized that his friend might have slept due to illness or tiredness after a journey. The son hurriedly came out of the house to tell something to the pious man but saw him slowly walking on his way back (with dropped shoulders) murmuring to himself, "You have become so proud that you have shifted focus from finding faults in yourself and searching faults in others". From that day onwards the pious man didn't let himself sleep properly for a year as a punishment to his EGO. Every time he felt sleepy he used to force himself out of bed to indulge himself in prayers and repentance in front of Allah (swt).

    Read not to contradict and confute, not to believe and take for granted, not to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. Inhale positive, exhale negative

    The editing time is very short. Mods please change the spellings from "Meat" to "Meet" in the second paragraph. Thanks in advance
