Spiritual Bankruptcy

Spiritual Bankruptcy!

Any Muslim who is exposed to the reality of the hadith of Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) recorded by Imam Muslim will be shivering down his spine.

Our Habib (Pbuh) said: "A bankrupt person among my Ummah is the one who will come on the Day of Resurrection with prayer, fasting and Zakat to his credit, but he will come having slandered someone and shed the blood of another and wrongfully consumed the wealth of a third, so (his victim) will be given some of his hasanaat (good deeds), and if his hasanaat run out before the score is settled, some of their sins will be taken and thrown onto him, and he will be thrown (headlong) into Hell."

Allaah in His inimitable style says in Suratul Hajj says: "So shun the abomination (worshipping) of idol, and shun lying speech (false statements) Q22:30

Echoing similar sentiments, Allaah says: "And follow not (O man i.e, say not, or do not or witness not) that of which you have no knowledge. Verily! The hearing, and the the sight, and the heart, of each of those of you will be questioned (by Allaah)." Q17:36

Brothers and sisters in Islam! How many times do we attribute hypocrisy to people and even scholars when we cannot defend that in front of Allaah?

How many times do we call a Muslim a Kafir when in reality we cannot defend that in front of Allaah?

How many times do we pronounce people adulterer and adulteress when in reality we've never seen them committing Zina?

How many times do we attribute homosexuality to people when in reality we have no valid Shari'ah facts?

How many times do we pass harsh judgement on people just because they differ with us in understanding?

How many times do we point an accusing finger at others when in reality they are innocent of the sins?

Before you throw up your Quranic recitation, your Tahajjud, your Zakat, your fasting to someone else who sleeps all the night on the Day of Qiyamat, be wise and stop saying things which if Allaah asks you to defend them you won't be able to.

What Rasulullaah (Pbuh) advocated for is to draw people into the fold of Islam and not drive them out of the fold of Islam.

Regarding others we only assume they are sinful but regarding ourselves we know we are sinful.

Avoid being spiritually bankrupt. May Allaah guide us.
