Imam Ibn al Jawzee (R): “The true miskeen is…”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على رسول الله وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن اهتدى بهديه إلى يوم الدين

Imam Ibn al Jawzee (R) said:

The true miskeen (impoverished person) is the one whose lifetime is lost in knowledge that he does not act upon. So he has missed out on the delights of the dunia and the treasures of the Hereafter. Thus he will come (on the Last Day) as a bankrupt person, along with having a strong proof against himself.

[‘Awaa-iq ut talab of ‘Abdus Salaam ibn Burjiss (R), pp. 17 to 19]
