Allah lest this wealth and worldly comfort engender pride, decadence and transgression and, thus this body and wealth become the cause of them burning in the fire of Hell. In this regard, listen to a Quranic verse and a adīš and fear the Hidden Plan of Allah.

Respite from Allah

Sayyidunā ‘Uqbaĥ Bin ‘Āmir رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ has narrated that the Prophet of Ramaĥ, the Intercessor of Ummaĥ صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘If you see a person upon whom Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestows (His favours), (but) the person persists in committing sins; (then) this is a mere respite (from Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ). The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم then recited the following verse:

Commenting on the foregoing verse, Muftī Amad Yār Khān       عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الْـمَنَّان has stated, ‘(From this) we have learnt that the worst of punishments is the hardness of the heart, (because of which) the teachings of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم do not have an effect on the person. We have also come to know that getting worldly pleasures, despite persistence in sins, is the wrath and punishment from Allah عَـزَّوَجَـلَّ as the person becomes heedless and indulges fearlessly in sins due to his luxurious possessions.
