Sad Reality – لَّآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنتَ سُبۡحَـٰنَكَ إِنِّى ڪُنتُ مِنَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

Al-Fudhayl Ibn Iyaad rahimahullah said:

Any evil doer can think he is a good person, the ignorant can think of himself as a scholar, the greedy thinks of himself generous, the stupid thinks of himself as intelligent; life is short and hopes are unlimited, yet many are too dazzled with themselves to see a clear picture for advancement.

Adh-Dhahabi rahimahullah said:

I swear by Allah that Fudhayl is right. One is also unjust, yet believes he is the oppressed, eats unlawfully and thinks himself pious, a sinner and thinks himself honest, and seeks knowledge but hasn’t even learned to implement it, even to his family.

 [As-Siyaar, 8/440]

  1. SubhanaAllah!!so true and humbling….

  2. Is imam dhahabi’s statement found in sifata safwa?

  3. Ok found out. It is As-Siyar and not Sifatus safwah and yes the place I got it from, they’ve made an error.
    Analytical eye and knowledge, both together, are given to those who are blessed. BarakAllahu feekum Ustadh (no pun/sarcasm intended).
