Human beings must not seek things that have not been created by God

SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: The one who seeks things which have not been created is placing himself/herself into hardship and will gain nothing [1]. In the continuation of this narration it is added that the thing which has not been created and people seek it, is the “tranquility in this world”. In another narration, Allah (SWT) revealed to Dawood (AS): O’ Dawood, I have placed 5 things in another 5 things but people seek them in another 5 things; that is why they cannot find them. I have placed tranquility in the paradise but they seek it in this world, which is why they cannot find it. [2].
