What is the proper way of using this world?

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Abu Dhar (RA) who said: Make the world with two words: A word for attaining Halal sustenance, and the other word for the hereafter; but the third word is harmful and has no benefit, so do not go after it [1]. In this narration, Abu Dhar (RA) wanted to explain briefly the right way to use this world by opening two chapters in our lives; one for attaining Halal sustenance, and another for the hereafter. For the first chapter, one must search for all Halal elements in life, such as look for ways of Halal earnings, marriage, studying, these are all Halal sustenance. And open another chapter for the hereafter; by spending Halal earnings on essential things in life, or on things which will benefit us in the hereafter. Do not waste your resources and do not spend them in inappropriate places and useless causes. And the third word which is neither for attaining Halal nor for the hereafter; this has no benefit and is also harmful for the hereafter.
