Do you ever sit and stare at a child playing with a little insignificant toy and think to yourself, ‘my god, what do you find so interesting and intriguing about this stupid little contraption? it’s just some bits of plastic and stuff and you sit and play with it for hours, how? Why do you care so much about this silly toy? You’ll grow out of it one day.’
That must be how Allah looks at us and our dunya.
When the righteous people met one another they would advise each other and if they were absent they would write to one another, (with the following): Whoever does an act seeking the hereafter then Allaah will suffice him in his worldly affairs, whoever corrects what is between him and Allaah, then Allaah will correct that which is between him and the people, and whoever corrects his behaviour in private, then Allaah will correct his situation publicly.
