awful. Another benumbing reminder that if you don't distance your heart from the love of dunyawi glitter - it will reduce you to her plaything, tossing you one way now and the other next moment, at whim. Zinat-ul-Hayatid-dunya: the ornament/glitter of the life of this dunya, is a knife with which man murders his principles, his self-esteem, his honor and his akhira! whereas if one has ghayrah and flees to Allah ta'ala from the accursed dunya and her flase promises of "glory" - then saith our Lord: "Is not Allah sufficient for His slave?" "And He who puts His trust in Allah, then he shall find Him sufficient for himself" --- if only we turn away from the constant ruckus that the dogs of this dunya create, barking of her charms, then we will appreciate the honor and sakeenah that comes from the divine heights - as if, the very soul of the cosmos has come to stand by you and nudge you on, along the path of uprightness - no matter how humble the bread you eat or how modest the bed you lie down upon. And see how helpless are these "heroes" that you put upon pedestals and worship - in crass ignorance of the rights of Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) upon you. So flee towards Allah, and towards the Garden whose breadth is like the expanse of the heavens and the earth - and which has been prepared for those who fear their Lord.
