Amazing Admonition From Yunus Bin Ubayd to Those Complaining About Poverty and Hardship!
Posted on Friday, August 26, 2011
Ghassaan bin al-Mufaddal al-Ghulaabee said:
حدثني بعض أصحابنا قال جاء رجل إلى يونس بن عبيد فشكا إليه ضيقا من حاله ومعاشه واغتماما بذلك فقال أيسرك ببصرك مئة ألف قال لا قال فبسمعك قال لا قال فبلسانك قال لا قال فبعقلك قال لا في خلال وذكره نعم الله عليه ثم قال يونس أرى لك مئين ألوفا وأنت تشكو الحاجة

Some of our associates narrated to me that a man came to Yunus bin Ubayd (d. 139H) and complained of the hardship he was going through in his livelihood and of his anxiety because of it. So he said (to him), "Would you be happy to give up your eyesight for a hundred thousand (dinars, dirhams)?" He said, "No." He said, "Then what about your hearing?" He said, "No." He said, "Then what about your tongue?" He said, "No." He said, "Then what about your aql (intellect)?" He said, "No, [not] for any wants, needs." Then he reminded him of the favours of Allaah upon him after which he, Yunus, said, "I see that you have hundreds of thousands of (dinars, dirhams) yet you are complaining of need!

Al-Siyar of al-Dhahabi (6/292). And the meaning here is that since you have placed such monetary worth on your faculties granted to you by Allaah, then you can't be that destitute like what you are claiming, and in reality, Allaah's favours and bounties upon your are abundant by your own self-admission.

In What Lies the Rectitude of the Child, the Youth, the Middle-Aged, the Woman and the One Who Harms Others?

Al-Hakeem al-Tirmidhi said:
صلاح خمسة في خمسة صلاح الصبي في المكتب وصلاح الفتى في العلم وصلاح الكهل في المسجد وصلاح المرأة في البيت وصلاح المؤذي في السجن

The rectitude of five lie in five: The rectitude of a child lies in the study-room. The rectitude of a youth lies in (seeking and acquiring) knowledge. The rectitude of the mature, middle-aged man lies in the masjid. The rectitude of a woman is in her house. And the rectitude of one who harms others is in the prison.

Al-Siyar of al-Dhahabi (13/441).

Shaqiq Al-Balkhi on the Signs of True Repentance

Shaqiq al-Balkhi said:
علامة التوبة البكاء على ما سلف والخوف من الوقوع في الذنب وهجران إخوان السوء وملازمة الأخيار

The sign(s) of (true) repentance are: Crying over what has passed by (of one's actions), fear of falling into the sin (once again), boycotting evil company, and accompanying the righteous.

Al-Siyar of al-Dhahabib (9/315)

Abu Al-Dardaa: Three Things I Love but Which the People Hate

Abu al-Dardaa (radiallaahu anhu) said:
ثلاثة أحبهن ويكرههن الناس الفقر والمرض والموت أحب الفقر تواضعا لربي والموت اشتياقا لربي والمرض تكفيرا لخطيئتي

Three things I love but the people hate: Poverty, illness and death. I love poverty out of humility to my Lord, and death out of fondness (of meeting) my Lord, and illness as expiation for my sin.

Al-Siyar of al-Dhahabi (2/349)
