The doors of success

Reference: Al-Fawaaid, p. 169

Shaqeeq Ibn Ibraheem said:

“The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:

  1. Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allah instead of thanking Allah for them. 
  2. Their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions. 
  3. Their hastiness to sin and delaying repentance. 
  4. Their deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as role models. 
  5. Chasing the Dunya (worldly life) whilst it turns away from them.
  6. Turning away from the Aakhirah (Hereafter) while it approaches them.”



إغلاق باب التوفيق

المرجع: الفوائد لابن القيم: ص 169

قال شقيق بن إبراهيم: أغلق باب التوفيق على الخلق من ستة أشياء:

– اشتغالهم بالنعمة عن شكرها

– و رغبتهم في العلم وتركهم العمل

– والمسارعة إلى الذنب وتأخير التوبة

– والاغترار بصحة الصالحين وترك الاقتداء بفعالهم

– إدبار الدنيا عنهم وهم يتبعونها

– وإقبال الآخرة عليهم وهم معرضون عنها
