Being decieved by this world

SHAFAQNA – We have not seen hereafter and have not tasted its enjoyments to resist the displays of this world. We have seen the beauties of this world  and have tasted its enjoyments. And it is here that the issue of weak belief needs to be considered. The weakness of belief will cause a human not to be able to resist the world and material displays. This is a fact that human dies and we believe that there are happenings in the hereafter. But these beliefs have not entered our hearts and this causes weakness in our affection of God leading us be deceived by this world. Therefore, our beliefs need to enter our hearts [1].
