    • The person who makes fun of others is oftentimes worse than them. To make fun of people only springs from a heart that is full of bad characters."
      --Shaikh As-Sa'di (rahimahullah)

                • "Only God can judge me now" does not remove the fact that you are still committing a sin. Thus don't look for comfort in such statement, but instead one should be in fear when saying something like that. Don't look at the "smallness of your sins" look at the greatness of the one you sin against.

                  • Ibn Qayyim RA said: Adam AS was taken out of Jannah, while he was in it. He was taken out because of a single sin that he did. And you are constantly doing sins, while outside of Jannah, yet hoping to enter Jannah.

                    • Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu

                      It has been reported from Shaqeeq al-Balkhee ุฑุญู…ู‡ ุงู„ู„ู‡ that he asked Haatim (al-Asam): You accompanied me for some time (now), so what have you learned?

                      Haatim said: (I have learned) Eight things:

                      1. As for the first: I looked at the creation (the humans), and everyone has something which is beloved to him, but when he reaches the grave, his beloved abandons him. So I made my good deeds as my beloved so that it accompanies me in the grave.

                      2. As for the second: I looked at the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟูˆูŽู†ูŽู‡ูŽู‰ ุงู„ู†ู‘ูŽูู’ุณูŽ ุนูŽู†ู ุงู„ู’ู‡ูŽูˆูŽู‰ูฐ๏ดพ
                      {and he restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lustsโ€ฆ } [Surah al-Naazi`aat (79): 40]

                      So I strove against myself in pushing away the desires till I was able to steady myself upon the obedience of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰.

                      3. As for the third: I saw that everyone had something which was precious to him and he safeguarded it. Then I looked at the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟู…ูŽุง ุนูู†ู’ุฏูŽูƒูู…ู’ ูŠูŽู†ู’ููŽุฏู ูˆูŽู…ูŽุง ุนูู†ู’ุฏูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู ุจูŽุงู‚ู๏ดพ
                      {Whatever is with you, will be exhausted, and whatever with Allaah will remain.} [Surah al-Nahl (16): 96]

                      So whenever I had something valuable, I turned it towards Allaah (i.e. gave it away in charity) so that it is preserved with Him for me.

                      4. As for the fourth: I saw that the people refer to (or boast about their) the wealth, noble lineage, or fame (and rank). So I looked at the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟุฅูู†ู‘ูŽ ุฃูŽูƒู’ุฑูŽู…ูŽูƒูู…ู’ ุนูู†ุฏูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู€ู‡ู ุฃูŽุชู’ู‚ูŽุงูƒูู…ู’๏ดพ
                      {Verily, the most honorable of you with Allaah is that (believer) who has al-Taqwa} [Surah al-Hujuraat (49): 13]

                      So I worked towards attaining al-Taqwa so that I am among the honorable with Allaah.

                      5. As for the fifth: I saw people covet (envy) each other. I looked at the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟ ู†ูŽุญู’ู†ู ู‚ูŽุณูŽู…ู’ู†ูŽุง ุจูŽูŠู’ู†ูŽู‡ูู… ู…ู‘ูŽุนููŠุดูŽุชูŽู‡ูู…ู’๏ดพ
                      {It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood} [Surah al-Zukhruf (43): 32]

                      So I left off jealousy.

                      6. Sixth: I saw them having enmity towards one another. Then I saw the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟุฅูู†ู‘ูŽ ุงู„ุดู‘ูŽูŠู’ุทูŽุงู†ูŽ ู„ูŽูƒูู…ู’ ุนูŽุฏููˆู‘ูŒ ููŽุงุชู‘ูŽุฎูุฐููˆู‡ู ุนูŽุฏููˆู‘ู‹ุง๏ดพ
                      {Indeed, Shaitaan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy.} [Surah Faatir (35): 6]

                      So I left off their enmity and treated Shaitaan as my sole enemy.

                      7. Seventh: I saw them toiling themselves. Then I looked at the saying of Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰:
                      ๏ดฟูˆูŽู…ูŽุง ู…ูู† ุฏูŽุงุจู‘ูŽุฉู ูููŠ ุงู„ู’ุฃูŽุฑู’ุถู ุฅูู„ู‘ูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู€ู‡ู ุฑูุฒู’ู‚ูู‡ูŽุง๏ดพ
                      {And no (moving) living creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allaah.} [Surah Hood (11): 6]

                      So I busied myself in fulfilling His rights upon me and I did not care for that which was with Him for me.

                      8. Eight: I saw them relying on their trade, their skills and their physical strength, so I trusted upon Allaah ุชุนุงู„ู‰.

                      [Mukhtasar Mihaaj al-Qaasideen (1/24-25

                        • "What a wonderful thing to know Him (i.e Allah)! But how can one know Him but not love Him? How can one hear the caller but fail to respond? How can one know the profit to be gained in dealing with Him but still prefer others? How can one taste the bitterness of disobeying Him but still abstain from seeking the pleasure of obeying Him? How can one feel the severity of engaging in trivial speech, but fail to open your heart to His remembrance? How can one be tortured by being attached to others but not rush toward the bliss of turning to Him in repentance? Perhaps it is most surprising to know that while you are in need of Him, you are still reluctant to move toward Him because you seek others" -Ibn Al-Qayyim

                              • Whoever loves this worldly life, will estimate its value, and he will make himself a slave to it, and it will humiliate him. And whoever neglects it, will notice his great value, and it will serve him, and it will humiliate itself for him.
